You will have contributed your ideas to the architectural evolution of the platform and seen your ideas implemented.

You are continuously researching tools, technologies, and practices. You are able to distinguish between what is hype and what is valuable, and you have solid arguments in favour of your proposals.

You can guide the team towards the established goals. Your colleagues have come to value your technical advice, and you are able to identify areas that need improvement and drive those improvements.
