What is it like to be a Senior Developer?

Episode 10: evolving your skills and becoming a Senior Dev

As you may know, we already talked about what it’s like to be a Junior Dev in another episode of Octobot Tech Talks. Now, we want to dig in the experience of a Senior Developer:

  • How do you become a Senior?
  • What is there to develop or learn?
  • What are the advantages? And the challenges?


To answer these questions and more, we received two Senior Devs from our team, Carmela and Alexander, who have been in Octobot for years. They told us how they prepared for their seniority, what they have learned along their career, and why they consider it important to keep learning and developing new abilities.
