They generally establish high levels of trust and operate with significant autonomy. This position is reserved for individuals with significant development and leadership experience.

  • Influencing the customer toward successful outcomes by establishing trust through reliable and successful execution and demonstrated competency.
  • Providing vision for other engineers within their area of influence, and advocating for that vision while taking into account client requirements.

  • Actively contributing code and performing code review on your applications as an engineer.
  • Participating in technical depth interviews with new candidates
