Setting the correct zoom level

Recently I’ve had more than a few conversations with people who are questioning their career choices.

How Senior is Senior?

At Lookahead, we have a pretty special view of the software industry. Not only do we see the difference in salary bands across some of the best companies in Australia, we also have a real understanding of the all the attributes needed to get you into the different levels at each company, including code quality.

What's your actual hourly rate?

Technical tests - coding up a storm

How's that code test going? Walk in the park or stressing you out?

Welcome to Rails Girls, here's your caffeine.

Here at Lookahead we get a special view of our industry. Above and beyond the awesome companies we talk to each day and our amazing candidates we also see things from the 10,000 foot view.

Your resume is your pitch deck

Much of my recent career has been as a Rails developer within startups. In startup-land, pitching is a daily occurrence.

“Although I’m not coding on a daily basis, I’ve really enjoyed meeting developers and chatting with them. Having that technical background definitely helps me understand what developers and companies are after. I’ve also spent a lot of time giving people general advice on job searching and resume writing. They really appreciate that.”
