Sarah Drasner: Career Ladders for Tech

  • Engineering

Sarah has open-sourced career ladders that she developed in her role as an engineering manager and VP. These ladders include engineering, developer experience and also technical writing (for documentation) - something we haven’t seen elsewhere to date. She describes the levels as such: Roles up to and including Senior, ladders are constructed around becoming the best at what one does that one might personally be. At Staff level, the career expands to help others be successful with what you do and know, and scale yourself. At Principal and beyond, you are trying to help others be the best that they can be, removing yourself and meeting others where they are.
