I mean, I've seen very technically proficient devs fail to deliver because there's too many cooks in the kitchen, or because they drown themselves in tooling or bikeshed their project to death. Maybe something like that happened?

There's definitely tons of senior devs out there that care way more about linting and unit testing than they do about writing the code that implements the spec.

Nothing hit quite as hard as the punch to the gut from the bit about linting and unit testing... spot on. I've already decided to move on and such, but my current company is so this that it hurts.
