Are you over 40 yet? It changed for me this last job hunt.

I'm 38. We'll see what happens in a couple of years. In any case, these enterprise companies usually have a position of architect on their teams, where grey hair are even an advantage. I don't like this job, as it's more headaches than coding in a lot of ways, but when if ages turns out to be a thing, then I guess I'll be architecting (I've done it several times already, so I have the CV for that).

If you are still hopping by 40 they probably don’t get what they want any more, which is an experienced, stable worker.
