When you’re a tech lead, the most important work you do is helping other engineers grow and setting them up for success. That means making sure they have the tools, guardrails, and confidence they need to have an impact from day one. But, that’s easier said than done. Pretty much every engineer I’ve worked with has a different learning style, and every engineering manager I know has a different leadership style. There isn’t really a one-size-fits-all method to onboarding but I think we all agree that the first 30 days are critical for every new hire.
