- Patreon Engineering Levels
The Patreon team outlines common expectations and examples of an engineer’s skills and responsibilities at each level, based on technical skills, execution, collaboration, influence, and maturity. As engineers progress, they are expected to expand their technical proficiency, scope larger solutions, provide helpful code reviews, estimate tasks accurately, communicate complex issues clearly, mentor junior engineers, have broader impact, and build consensus. Higher levels focus on leadership, strategic visioning, planning complex projects, communicating with diverse audiences, and having company-wide impact by advancing Patreon technically and affecting business success.
