As a backend developer, what are the best companies to learn how to build good products instead of focusing mostly on engineering specific tasks? I am thinking maybe Facebook, Airbnb..

    Product managers shouldn’t be building products..... they should be doing market research and bringing that to the engineering team

      I like to build things; however, I don’t want to focus on things like how to scale a system, how to optimize memory usage anymore. Just wondering any company gives the engineers more responsibilities in product design. Maybe the product is still the domain of PMs and designers, not engineers; if you want to build products, you have to go to a startup or do your own things.

      Sounds like you’ve worked at places that treat engineers like code monkeys

      Not really, just different focuses and responsibilities. Is Airbnb a good place to work for someone who like both engineering and design?

      Not systematically. Depends on team
