- Building an Engineering Ladder at Glossier
Glossier created an engineering ladder to provide structure as their engineering team grows. The ladder aims to provide a clear career path and progression for engineers as individual contributors or managers. They structured the ladder based on research of other companies' ladders but tailored it to Glossier's culture and values. The ladder maps their company values to specific skills to make progress more measurable. They hope the ladder will provide transparency around what it takes to advance, improve retention, and serve as a testing ground for the rest of the company. So far, feedback on the ladder has been positive as it provides additional structure and transparency around career progression.
