What motivates software engineers to pursue new opportunities? According to data crunched by Triplebyte, “opportunity for professional growth” is the biggest motivator, ahead of salary, better work/life balance, and “impressive team members.” (The company, which tries to streamline the technical hiring process, asks every engineer on its platform about what would excite them most in their next position.) For most software engineers, professional growth is necessary for a healthy career. “It’s not uncommon for us to see skilled programmers left on the sidelines for the sin of sticking with PHP or Perl for a little too long,” Triplebyte wrote in a note accompanying the data. “For all that software engineering is a lucrative and comfortable career in some respects, a smart and career-aware engineer knows that their long-term employability is more precarious than it might look at any given time.”
