# Urban Airship
- Well-versed in multiple key product components; able to define and contribute to systems in multiple areas of the product; up to date on evolving standards, platform features, and critical vendor and community-provided technologies
- Defines, documents, and evolves best practices for development in their team's area of focus; shepherds and aids in development of new projects across the organization; provides training and mentoring for multiple team members; constantly working to broaden the technical capabilities of their team
- Helps to identify key gaps in product offerings and functionality that will drive significant revenue and customer excitement; good communicator; pragmatically plans minimum viable infrastructure for product launch; can take lead on non-trivial projects to address those needs
- Goes above and beyond basic requirements to support their own team and others; tackles hard debugging, incident response, and reverse-engineering tasks; willing to take on the grungy work needed to get things done; regularly interviews candidates in a variety of engineering roles
# Intent Media
- A Staff Engineer provides considerable high­level technical guidance across the squad. They can usually anticipate and plan for technical problems. They are highly knowledgeable in major parts of our technology stack and are the technical owner of significant components of our code base. They have a sustained track record of creating improvements in business­critical systems around stability, performance, and scalability.
- A Staff Engineer is still acting in a very hands­on role, and as such, they are a prolific contributor to both core projects at Intent Media as well as side and experimental work. When presented with a complex problem, process or existing system they are able to reduce the complexity in order to get more done with less work. They provide guidance, direction and help colleagues build and produce better outcomes.
- A Staff Engineer has strong abilities to influence without requiring reporting authority. They are influential beyond their individual group. They are capable of driving groups of disparate interests to decisions, and clearly communicating and seeing those decisions through to impact.
- A Staff Engineer is capable of setting short to medium term strategic direction for part of a technology stack, identifying areas of critical need based on future growth and developing roadmaps to attack those problems.
