As engineers scale the technical track, they need to take on a whole new set of leadership skills.

And while managers are often provided with resources and support, very senior individual contributors (ICs) aren’t. StaffPlus is here to change that.

Hear what past attendees had to say about our StaffPlus conferences

Thousands of senior, staff, principal, and distinguished engineers have been part of our StaffPlus events. After the success of our StaffPlus Live virtual conference in September 2021, we had our first in-person StaffPlus New York conference in April 2022. Here's what some of our attendees had to say...

The single track conference style was refreshingly focused. The deciding factor for me was the quality of the speakers and their chosen topics.

Brad Osgood
Squarespace Staff Engineer

The inclusivity and dedication to making it a good event for everybody was clear. I appreciated measures such as the Ramadan note during lunch.
