The 10x engineer is a much sought after breed in Silicon Valley.
But how does one identify him? Well, a thread on Twitter attempted to do just that... and got lots of reactions from developers and the common folk alike!
Some of the stereotypical behaviors of the "10x engineer" mentioned in this thread include skipping meetings, not being punctual, and just generally being bad team players. But then again, they are amazing at code.
Ever since the 10x engineer thread was posted on Twitter, it has sparked a discussion on the platform. While some are saying an early stage startup needs such coding geniuses, others are calling them prima donnas.
Hell, there’s even a parody already!
But this one kinda wins the hearts!
What’s your take on the 10x engineer? Will you hire one if you had a startup?
