In order to have a personal development plan, set expectations for members of the team and standardise salary ranges, we have defined a career path framework. Each member of the Product team will be assigned a level according to their competency, demonstrated impact and expected responsibility. You can have a look to the org chart by groups.
Note that behaviours mentioned in each level must be accomplished in the next ones, that is why they only appear once, in the level they start being a requirement.
Moreover, “Have a Positive & Humble attitude” has special importance for us and therefore we would love to remind two behaviours we will always have to show during our time in the company:
You treat everyone with the same respect, regardless of their position or role
If you have the opportunity to give feedback, you provide evidence and do so always in a constructive way, never destructive
Take the path… and may the force be with you :)
Remember to check your scope and average timeframe in level:
|Level||Scope||Average timeframe in level (*)||Path that applies to|
|1||Own squad||6 months - 1 year||IC|
|2||Own squad||1 year - 3 years||IC|
|3||Own squad||what it takes||IC & Management|
|4||Cross teams/squads within the group||what it takes||IC & Management|
|5||Cross teams/squads within the group||what it takes||IC & Management|
|6||All groups/All Product||what it takes||IC & Management|
(*) L1 and L2 should work in their profesional development having in mind estimated timeframes (this can vary based on each person). From L3 onwards, time estimation for each level won’t be considered since it will depend on each person whether or not advancing to higher levels.
