The path to becoming a senior; at what point are you a senior?
In other words, senior is the one that continuously generates high added value. The result is relevant! Where one senior generates the most added value by leading and moving his team forward, another is primarily a brilliant problem solver who develops excellent products, leads projects or advises customers, or is a visionary.
It’s all in the mix!
Even the most brilliant senior must be able to work in a team and understand his customer to deliver good results. Likewise, anyone who calls themselves a senior must be able to demonstrate deep programming skills, master project management methods, or be able to advise clients, no matter how good their other skills are. To summarize, you don’t automatically become a senior by having X years of work experience, but only by learning certain skills, namely professional, technical and social skills.
