When it comes to job satisfaction, software engineers score high marks across the industry. I wanted to check what are some of the major components of job satisfaction for you. These may very well be the building blocks to create a job satisfaction index for software engineers. Here is my list in the order I currently feel and may change with time. I assume based on at which stage you are in your career, your list and order will defer.
- Impact of the services I am developing as part of a team or company
- Financial benefits
- Technology Stack
- Growth opportunity
- Work/Life balance
- Executive leadership
- Brand name
I have asked this question in a LinkedIn post that you can check for how fellow engineers in the industry felt about it.
