|I recently joined a tech company (roughly 200 employees) as a Junior Engineer.|
From a Senior Engineer's (or teammates) perspective - what would be the ideal characteristics of a junior engineer joining your team?
* Asks lots of questions vs. making independent decisions on tradeoffs?
* Seeks additional code review vs. pushing a project and getting started on the next?
* Self picks projects from the backlog vs. asking after each project what I should work on next?
It's my first time working as a full-time software engineer. I can write the code, but have zero experience in 'this is how a junior dev should approach their role'.
