Good article, I really like how you broke the list down into easy to digest points. I wrote a similar post where I focused on the business case of a senior individual providing a higher ROI then the cost to bring them in, around impact and positive change.

I touched upon how the as the tech force doubles every 5 years there is more demand then ever for good senior devs to help steer the ship technically for a positive long-term business outcomes. My hypothesis is that I worry that due to the allure of FANNG-type roles and compensation packages there is a trend where smaller companies and start-ups will find it harder to be less accessible to compete for good talent.
