As a Software Engineer, you are involved in all stages of the product development and deployment lifecycle: idea generation, planning, design, prototyping, execution, shipping, and iteration. You might spend one day with product managers asking questions about the product and the next brainstorming mockups with Product Designers. Then, it's time to take on the hard technical problems: figuring out how to develop the feature as a scalable service or scheduler and/or make it possible for a UI to access the full range of data through APIs at a vast scale, then dive deep to understand each data point at a granular level.
