Jamey Hampton is an artist who turned into a programmer after one too many animation classes that were computer science classes in disguise. They're not a professional plant-liker (and senior software engineer) for Agrilyst. They're a conference speaker, a panelist on Greater Than Code, a zine librarian and a comics author. They wish they were immortal so they'd have time to visit every coffee shop in the world.

On this episode, we're talking about becoming a senior engineer. When you first become a senior engineer, you suddenly have new job responsibilities that aren't coding and they aren't management. It's not clear how to balance your time or evaluate your success. Our guest this week is Jamey Hampton, a panelist on Greater Than Code podcast and a Senior Engineer at Agrilyst. We talk about how to handle the changing responsibilities and perspective that comes from being promoted even when you're still the same person that you were the previous week. We also talk specifically about hiring as a non-coding responsibility.
