The job of a senior software engineer
There are three main reasons why you would want to have a senior engineer on your team.
First and foremost, a senior software developer converts your abstract ideas into meaningful and specific objectives. The word «meaningful» is essential here because it is the senior programmer’s job to ensure time is not wasted on useless activities.
Secondly, senior developers possess a perspective that can only be earned by many years of problem-solving practice, and observation of new technological trends and themes. Therefore making them valuable team members who are able to provide an informed decision free of any bias related to mainstream technologies.
Thirdly, senior developers are your partners, and making your business progress is their goal. They share your perspective on the development experience and critically assess the process, ensuring the completed tasks are only done for improvement.
