Job Satisfaction Index for Software Engineers


When it comes to job satisfaction, software engineers score high marks across the industry. I wanted to check what are some of the major components of job satisfaction for you. These may very well be the building blocks to create a job satisfaction index for software engineers. Here is my list in the order I currently feel and may change with time. I assume based on at which stage you are in your career, your list and order will defer.

  1. Impact of the services I am developing as part of a team or company
  2. Financial benefits
  3. Technology Stack
  4. Growth opportunity
  5. Work/Life balance
  6. Executive leadership
  7. Empowerment
  8. Culture
  9. Perks
  10. Brand name

I have asked this question in a LinkedIn post that you can check for how fellow engineers in the industry felt about it.
