DescriptionInfrastructure engineering is an often-overlooked piece of the full stack. As an engineer on a platform team at LinkedIn, I’ll highlight unique facets of infrastructure engineering and how you can use them as opportunities for growth. Specifically, you’ll learn how to establish yourself as a leader when in a supporting role; cultivate strong working relationships with others; navigate difficult conversations to find alignment with partner teams; and, for women engineers, leverage strengths of typical female communication styles to not only find a sense of belonging, but to thrive in a male-dominated environment.
