Career Growth

A brief look at what Career Growth looks like at Wednesday. Check out how the Roles & Responsibilities and Appraisals work.

Titles are external only. An environment where people have a "this is not a part of my job description" attitude is not what we like. Titles however allow our customers to understand your roles and responsibilities.

Roles & Responsibilities

Software Engineer

As a Software Engineer at Wednesday Solutions, you will have the opportunity to build, validate and document individual features. You will own a part of larger modules or products.

In this phase of your journey, you’re encouraged to ask questions and understand the why behind what you’re building. Once the purpose and impact of what you’re doing daily is clear, the reason behind building things a certain way also becomes clear. This lays the foundation for being able to make architectural, tooling, library and tech-stack decisions in the subsequent phases of your career.

You will be expected to communicate proactively, have a high level of curiosity, and a strong action bias. This is exemplified through innovation and timely and high-quality delivery.

Sharing learnings across the board is highly encouraged at Wednesday; staying true to that, we’ve been running Wednesday Wisdom, an internal knowledge-sharing session. As an SE, you will speak once a quarter and showcase your learnings.

Senior Software Engineer

In this phase of your journey, you will be helping onboard, & mentor team members and create and review Technical Requirement Documents (TRDs). This would require a solid understanding of how systems should work, delegation of responsibilities across the stack/components, and the ability to apply these principles to the modules and products that you own, bringing clarity in execution for the rest of the team.

You will conduct sharing sessions within your team, bringing about proactive tech and product innovation.

Engineering Manager
