It can be confusing when most companies don’t make it clear how software developers can get promoted for more senior roles.

If you’re a junior developer and trying to figure out, what exactly do I need to do? – it may not be cut and dry.

Rather in this episode, I share some soft skills I’ve found in working with over 30 software development teams that I see those who get promoted exhibit.

If you want to be considered for a senior software engineer role, or perhaps a higher level role such as a team lead, development manager, director, or even CTO – these skills are incredibly valuable.

They will make you stand out from other candidates and naturally be seen as a more mature option for a technical leader.
