Migrations: the sole scalable fix to tech debt.
Quote: "Lore tells us that Googlers have a phrase, "Running to stand still", to describe a team whose entire capacity is consumed in upgrading dependencies and patterns, such that it can't make forward progress on the product/system they own."

Engineering growth: introduction – Engineering Growth Framework – Medium
In late August we rolled out our Growth Framework, a set of documents and tools that described what we value at Medium, how to progress, and how we measure and reward that progress. In doing so, we attempted to build a thoughtful process that was equitable, incentivised the right kind of work, and which encouraged the growth of a robust, flexible, and inclusive team. Although development and delivery of the framework was led by Jamie Talbot and Madeline Bermes, it is the result of input and collaboration from the whole engineering team at Medium over many months. Today, we are excited to make our Growth Framework public for everyone to see. We're releasing all this material under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike license. You are welcome to take this work, build on it, and make suggestions for improvements. Medium strongly believes that our industry would benefit greatly if we shared and built upon each other's organisational processes the same way we share and build upon each other's open source code. In addition to this introductory piece, there are five living documents which describe the specifics of the framework, and three tools that we use to plan, assess, and memorialise growth.

Engineering Levels
This document outlines common expectations and examples of an engineer's skills and responsibilities at each level. It is intended for individual reference and for discussion between engineers and their managers. Please use this as a guide, not a checklist — not every item will apply to every engineer. Levels are cumulative. Each subsequent level encompasses those preceding it. All engineers at all levels are expected to embody Patreon's Core Behaviors. This document presents a matrix of possibilities for career growth, not merely a one-way ladder. Careers may include lateral movement, and there is no expectation that every engineer seek nor attain every level. There is room for growth, development, recognition, and a rich engineering career at different levels. While movement will vary by individual — particularly as seniority increases — we do expect that most IC1s should progress to IC2 within 2 years, IC2 to IC3 within 3 years. An engineer may have a mix of skill levels across the different categories (e.g. IC4 in communication, IC3 in technical skills). Patreon aims to ensure that each engineer is recognized at the most accurate level for their unique skill set and contributions.
