Katlyn Parvin, former Director of Engineering at Mavenlink, presents “Am I Senior Yet?” Grow Your Career by Teaching Your Peers.

“How do I become a senior engineer?” It’s a question every bootcamp grad will ask. Most engineers look at advancement through a lens of increasing technical skill. More than ever, though, being “senior” means more than just parsing Ruby in your sleep. As our companies grow and as our industry grows, seniority means helping new teammates and colleagues advance their own skills. It means knowing how to teach. You don’t need Matz-level knowledge to be a great teacher. With social awareness, a dash of psychology, and some proven approaches, by helping others learn, you’ll earn senior-level respect.

Andrew Huth, Senior Software Engineer and Team Lead at Mavenlink, presents Accessibility: Building for Every Body.
