Uplevel state of engineering: Top challenges that software engineers face in their job today
Uplevel surveyed a panel of 240 US-based software developers and managers on their work habits, key work challenges, and the impact these challenges had on their job.
We’re on a mission to free software engineers to do their best work. We envision a world where deep work actually happens, meeting hell doesn’t exist, PRs don’t get stuck for days, and managers can understand what’s going on with their teams — because they have all the data.
Last week, we unpacked the results of our research to define what makes a good sprint. Engineering managers from companies of all sizes shared their victories, their stressors, and their ideas to make sprints more successful. But it doesn’t stop there—a good sprint is necessarily carried by a good team. So, what makes a “good” team?
Here at Uplevel, we’re data deep-divers and how-to-coach coaches. We help engineering teams be more effective. Despite the objectivity of data, we can’t help but grapple with the subjectivity of what we’re measuring. We like defined goals, so we set out to answer three critical questions.
A new startup has emerged from stealth mode armed with $7.5 million in seed funding to disrupt what it calls the “software engineer status quo,” by giving leaders tools to measure how productive and happy their stables of developers are.
There’s a difference between working hard and working smart. And while it seems like software engineers are always working hard, that doesn’t mean that they’re always doing the latter.
