  • The different environments that technologists experience, from startups to enterprise, and how they can influence your career.
  • The different types of growth for a company (gradual organic growth vs. rapid growth through an acquisition).
  • The challenges a technologist might face when going through an acquisition and the impact an acquisition can have on engineering teams.
  • Strategies to determine whether a company’s future aligns with your career goals.
