I see a performance engineer role in LinkedIn careers. The description and duties expected seem to be vague and I'm not certain if it's an SDE role.

I've had experience with distributed systems, and been a software engineer generalist. Unable to figure out if I'm a fit. Would appreciate some pointers, Thanks!

    Just apply and if you get a call from HR, your resume is somewhat of a fit.

    That team is more or less broken. You will have reasonable compensation and good work life balance for the next 4 years. But these will not help you launch your next job - that’s mandatory if you did not make senior staff by then. The team used to have an annual turn over rate of 10%. In 2017 it was 32% and 2018 it was 34%. In terms of managers, 2018 is 75%. 2017+2018 was 100%. It was close to zero from 2011-2016.

      So turnover rate is the people leaving the company?

      This highly depends, on you and your projects. I’d say it’s doable but you might not want to.

      Leaving the company to goes to complete different team (different go), 2-3 such internal transfer in a 30-40 people team. Rest 20+ left the company.

      It is been a while, but it would be great if you are willing to shed lights on why the turn over rate is so high, and the current state of performance engineering at In 😀 much appreciated!
