I am reviewing terrible code as part of my daily work. People confidently push out crappy code without worrying about readability or even correctness. In my entirely career across several companies, I have seen less than 10 people who write beautiful code (although I have seen tons more outside of work in open source projects).
Is it because I am not in a kickass team? How prevalent is this in Amazon? What about other tech companies, could you share your experience?
In other words, companies don't value the skill. I know one team who writes very clean code. Company doesn't seem to care at end of day and only care about results. It's all about 'profit' and 'deliver fast', not 'write maintainable codebase'.
Why not hire me? I got onsite in a few days at Amazon ;)
