A great high level explanation of the concerns a high level engineer should be thinking about. I think some other concerns that should be very important to a senior engineer is being a people leader, and guiding mentees and peers -- and even leaders higher up the chain -- to making better technical and non-technical decisions.
This may be too soon, but.. speaking of helping lead: A senior engineer and/or leader would be working hard to find and stop any of the harassment issues being talked about on Blind for the last two weeks.
Absolutely. I'm actively involved with our lady eng ERG at Uber. Over the past few weeks I've been listening to a lot of stories and helping out where I can. I've also been working for better representation of diversity in the tech industry at large for several years now.
