No, I'm not leaving my job as Senior Software Engineer for Davis Vision.
Actually, this is about that job.
I've worked for my current employer for about a year and a half now; this is the only place I've stayed more than a year, other than the newspaper in Rochester where I was webmaster/tech lead for a little over three years.
I really like it here. I like the people, I generally like the pace, and I love the opportunities I'm getting to refresh and renew our styles, standards and practices, on a team- and company-wide level.
However, I find myself doing more and more administrative tasks. And finding myself in more and more meetings, in lieu of one of the directors going.
I fear I'm on the verge of the balance of my workload shifting away from predominantly writing code ... in some ways, maybe that's inevitable. In some ways, I kind of look forward to that sort of transition. In many other ways, I want to stay put, in the role I'm in now, without a heavy addition of responsibility and expectations.
Is that selfish of me?
