About 🎓

Become a Senior Engineer, often shortened to BASE, is a free weekly newsletter for software engineers looking to level up to Senior++.

Our focus is to frame topics through the mindset of a Senior engineer, to help understand what differentiates higher level individual contributors and the impact they make on an organization.

If we’ve done our job well, each article will contain some form of actionable advice that you can apply immediately to begin demonstrating your Senior capabilities.


We’re building a small community here as BASE continues to grow, and we’d love for you to be a part of it.

Contribute comments and discussion chats via the Substack app.
