30+ Engineering Career Ladders

While writing The Engineering Manager's Survival Guide, I gathered and reviewed this extensive list of engineering career ladders.

What Is a Career Ladder?

A career ladder, or career path, is a progression framework. It allows an organization to describe the different job levels and the expectations for a given position. It enables the assessment of a software engineer's skills and to work on her career progression. It provides a shared framework to identify the different aspects to improve to reach the next job level. The ladder can also be mapped with employee's compensation, increasing salaries transparency, and fairness.
