Let’s begin by saying that, yes, experience is a crucial qualification for finding a senior engineer, but it alone does not necessarily mean success in the role. Requirements of the position may vary due to the size of a company or its business model. Part of their time may still be spent doing detailed work like advising jr. and mid-level engineers so that they know what the coding should look like, as well as setting coding standards. However, one of the essential traits for a senior engineer is to be able to switch to a big-picture mentality. This includes management, decision-making, problem-solving, high-level design, and other aspects of a project to avoid risks that could cause a project to fail.
So, why would working with TeamUP benefit a senior engineer more than their other options? Below are three ways we could help
Reason 1: TeamUP celebrates versatility
Versatility is a valuable selling point in today’s engineering industry. A technical worker with a limited skillset can be a liability in a project-based environment. Additionally, if a consultant is on auto-pilot for most projects, it can lead to more mistakes and higher burnout rates. Therefore, TeamUP provides more connections with professionals who’ve accumulated various skills that can bring new insights to any project. Furthermore, because these engineers are comfortable with short- and long-term contracts, they will be more adept at adapting quickly. Engineers will have more opportunities to do what they’re interested in, build upon their knowledge, and advance further in their careers.
Reason 2: TeamUP provides access to unlisted jobs
When a company works with a reliable partner with TeamUP, they will turn to them before posting the position publicly. Agencies offer solutions when a company needs to ramp up quickly for a new project. Some of these listings will most likely include special projects, which, for an engineer, can be very exciting as working with new technology is one of the leading reasons individuals choose to join the profession.
This also allows them more opportunities to network and create connections with an array of companies they might have otherwise. Getting a foot in a desirable door is a challenging task. Still, because a hiring manager may know an engineer from a past project, they can recommend or further create resources down the road. This is invaluable in any career, especially in an industry that relies so much on remote work.
Reason 3: Offering a better work/life balance
When an engineer can decide which projects to accept through a partner like TeamUP, it’s a significant benefit. Engineers are creative and passionate about their work. They won’t complete their best work— or stick around— if they feel they are being micromanaged, second-guessed, or underutilized. Given the current talent war for capable professionals, offering your tech talent as much flexibility as possible is vital.
TeamUP provides benefits from 401K, and health insurance to continuing education and professional development. This also allows the consultants we work with to learn new perspectives and skills working on various assignments while having peace of mind with benefits like those provided by a singular employer.
So, why work with TeamUP?
OK, you caught us; working with TeamUP benefits more than just the senior engineers on the team— but providing them with highly adaptive teams to lead is like an all-of-the-above benefit if you think about it. Senior engineers are tasked with not only technological responsibilities but also managerial duties— namely, keeping their teams on track and engaged.
Because those duties are time-consuming and overwhelming, it makes sense to work with an experienced outsourcing partner like TeamUP to place you in and with good hands.
