Discussion on: Don't aim for 'Senior'

Senior = more experience/pay bump for that experience.

In my opinion, that is something to strive for. It may also mean more freedom, input on the team/org, what projects you can work on, etc. I see senior in title and senior as in "They've been here longer and know the way of the land" which is a nice perk.

I have no idea what comes after senior and I with titles were more consistent. I do see senior a lot (more in non-dev roles) in orgs where there are no juniors to justify a higher pay range.
