Hi All, Say you have an offer for Senior Test Engineer and SDET (not senior). Compensation is same. Both the companies are good. Given the narrowing boundaries between testing and dev, which position is better in the long run? I thought it'd be SDET. But, I'd like to have expert/experienced opinion.

How much experience you do have? I would definitely prefer SDET over Senior Test Engineer


I have 3+yrs of experience

Go with SDET Role you will have lots of opportunity to work with better organisations


I agree, I think it'll be more better work overall
