Yep moved to Seattle 3 yrs ago to get a tech job, and I'm still looking. I can't tell you how many times I have been ghosted for potential jobs, once the employer (or recruiter) finds out my age. Never get passed the phone interview.

Qualifications don't matter, social "fit" does. If your over 50 forget about getting on at a startup, if you have consider yourself lucky.

The tech industry does not like Senior software developers, or more precisely they don't like Seniors who write software.

And yet you read all these news articles about how there is a shortage of IT talent.

And I'm still looking.
