When you are part of a team, you adopt the goals, objectives and priorities of that team. As a lead engineer, you can effectively work in a team, which makes managing your time a little tricky. At Intercom, we believe a Principal Engineer should “set goals independently and at the Latest Mailing Database level of scope and ambition usually associated with a team.” You used to work on team goals – now you're responsible for setting and tracking your own goals, agenda and personal growth. How often should you set goals? Before joining Intercom, I worked as a technical consultant and had to report daily to the client. It helped me become more aware of the importance of planning and how to use my time more effectively. It also meant that I started my role as Senior Engineer at Intercom with goal-setting and time-management habits already formed. As a company, Intercom sets quarterly goals (twelve-week periods) and cycle goals (six-week periods), so it makes sense for me to Latest Mailing Database do the same when setting goals as an engineer. major. I share my quarterly goals with everyone I work with, then break them down into commitments for each cycle, which I share with my manager. I also set myself weekly goals to stay organized. It helps break down big, abstract goals into achievable milestones and makes it easier to track progress. How do you choose your job? Coding is just one of the many tasks a lead engineer works on every day. You are expected to develop a broad understanding of the overall strategy and use it to decide what is most urgent and important. At the same time, because you're overseeing these larger strategic areas, you're no longer part of daily team rituals like stand-ups – so you need to make sure you follow the essential context for your work. "There will always be an endless supply of low effort, low impact work to Latest Mailing Database 'taste' on – look beyond to find the high impact work" Without effective organization and planning, you can end up spending your time on small, low-impact tasks that pile up to fill your days. There will always be an endless supply of low-effort, low-impact work to snack on - look beyond to find the high-impact work. There's rarely a "high impact backlog" ready to go, so you'll often have to create it yourself. Here are the four main inputs I consider when building this backlog.
