I think this is the most comprehensive overview of what a Staff Engineer does.

Awesome stuff Nicola & Raviraj. I learned a lot :)

I especially loved the calendar example

It’s either Substack is presenting your information really well or, and most probably the case, your writing is so clear and to the point. Love it. It’s helping set a direction for my career. Great breakdown. Thank you

Really liked the way it is written. I work as a senior engineer and was given the opportunity to lead the team which I feel is going away from my hands. I am gonna use points mentioned here to get help to get to the next level.

Loved it! I also especially enjoyed the “Typical Day of a Staff Engineer” section, it’s a great way to visualize the responsibilities :)

Very insightful article around the role. It's useful to know what a staff engineer does. To help you leverage their role and help you if you are in lower levels. Also, helps you decide whether that's the right next step for your growth.

Thanks Raviraj and Nicola for sharing this!
