Onboarding Staff+ Engineers
I’ve been interviewing, shaping the recruitment pipeline, onboarding and working closely with other Staff engineers. In my current gig as a Senior Staff engineer, I find myself digging into a new cluster (roughly 100–200 people) every few months which means I practically need to be onboarded as if I was new. I also mentor aspiring senior engineers who are on their way to becoming full blown Staff engineers. A common theme is the differences between senior engineers and Staff engineers which start from day 1.
