Job Title Vs Job Satisfaction
We surely have seen a lot of folks who get caught up with fancy job titles and then there are others who do not care about what their title says - they just love what they do.

How does this affect work life balance and future job prospects?

I want to learn from Diane why an organization needs front-end engineers and the value they brings to the table.

How to retain culture in a hyper growth phase?
How to retain the culture of the company during Hyper growth phase. When a company goes through high growth spurts, we hear this a lot - “When we were small, we had a great culture. But it’s all lost now. Our culture has changed. It doesn’t feel like the way it use to”. Right?
