Expanding the career options of software engineers

We’re Creating a Tailored Learning and Development Program for Entrepreneurial Engineers, and We Need Your Help (Part I)

In my previous posts, I talked about how Commit is dedicated to career growth, not just project work. From the beginning, we knew that if Commit was going to be built properly, we had to have a foundation that not only encouraged, but actually dedicated a certain element of itself to growth and development for each engineer.

What is a Startup Engineer (And How Are They Different From Other Engineers)?

Over the last few months I’ve spoken with a lot of engineers about Commit, and who we’re building it for. Sure, we aim to partner with exciting and promising seed-funded startups to help them get product-market fit faster, but what we’re really passionate about is optimizing our community for experienced, Entrepreneurial Engineers–the kind of folks that early stage startups dream of working with (and want to hire).

In early 2019, I stumbled across a fascinating challenge in the engineering community. Intuitively, I always knew it was there. As an experienced engineer myself who is more suited for the startup experience than the traditional tracks offered, I was well aware of the pain points of my own experience.
