How engineers can make an impact outside the code editor

Product engineers are experts at identifying, understanding and solving problems. When you talk about the types of problems you tackle, and therefore the impact that you have, the conversation should not be solely limited to the work you do within a text editor or integrated development environment (IDE).

Yes, the code that you write and the systems that you build are major contributing factors to the success and growth of a business. But when you’re free to solve problems at an organizational level, empowered to shape and evolve culture and processes, your impact can grow exponentially. Here are the five areas that we encourage product engineers to contribute to as they seek to maximize their impact.


Engineers starting out in the process should themselves be given time to acclimate to the culture of the team for a few months before shadowing an experienced interviewer for a period of time in order to ensure calibration of criteria. New interviewers should start off with sessions that involve less ambiguity like pairing or reviewing take home tests in order to become familiar with process. After you are comfortable with writing feedback and participating, you can begin to shadow more abstract and ambiguous sessions until you’re comfortable leading it. At this point you should continue running the session on your own for a period of time before starting to allow others to shadow you and then repeat the process for another session.
