Different Perspectives on Leadership

Jan 24, 2019 | by Hudson Ludvigson, Senior Software Engineer | Tags: Company Culture

As engineers, we love solving problems.  Anyone who has gotten deep in code knows ‘the zone’- that area where you are so deeply involved in a problem the email letting you know there is free pizza in the break room doesn’t come close to pulling you out of your seat.  Seeing your code work successfully and making things happen fires off an endorphin rush that attending a planning meeting doesn’t match.  If you perform your engineering duties at a high enough level, chances are you will be viewed as a go-to person on key matters and might even start mentoring others.  Inevitably, your employer looks at you and brings up that magical word some careers careen towards – Leadership.
