"Being a senior software engineer is a challenging and enjoyable career path that lets you exercise your creative side in software architecture and your intellectual side in problem solving and solution creation. I feel it is the greatest career field anyone could ever be a part of. There are very few career fields where you get to build applications that will be used by thousands of people and directly improve people's lives by doing your job well."
