In my experience developers are going straight from junior to senior and "lead" is the new senior.

As an example, I recently got offered a Senior Software Engineer position with 6 months experience @ Zendesk.

my whole dept seems to be filled with seniors younger then me, except my manager thinks the title still means something at this point so i'm not being considered for senior for years. im asking to be senior because i just want the money fuck the titles...

It's about what you can do, not about how long you've been around.

Time to leave I guess?
