This is the first of many iterations of our career ladder. We expect this ladder to last us 18-24 months.

Levelling is more about responsibility than experience.

24
Because potential is ripe for bias, evaluation for promotion is based on demonstrated ability. That means folks will be given the responsibility of the next level before they are given a promotion. Promotion based on demonstrated ability also provides opportunities for engineers to fail gracefully. The risk here is that we neglect to follow up with a promotion after someone has demonstrated their competency.

Engineers will be given promotions when they are performing to the mid-point of the next level. Consistent performance is not easy. Promoting someone who will be considered performing at the low end of their new level is a harbinger of bad outcomes, as it gives folks little room to falter before it becomes a problem. Additionally, promoting into the middle of the next level ensures our cohorts' standards can be maintained over time. We should be striving to improve the overall performance of each band every year.
