Software engineers: Levelling up
“This talk is an opinion piece based on what I have observed over my 25 year career, in particular, what I learnt as I helped engineers grow and improve at some of the world’s largest tech companies. It is a reflection of my time at Amazon, with a sprinkling of Facebook, and is about what I believe good looks like for each level of software engineer as they move from Junior to Principal and beyond. Hint: It’s more than your technical ability to write code.”
Richard Owen has been both a software engineer (12 yrs) and an Engineering Leader (13 yrs) at companies such as Amazon, Facebook, Nine Australia and the BBC. He has accidentally specialised in Video on Demand applications (across Web, Mobile and Connected Devices) with a focus on user experience and mentoring of my teams.
