Sorry didn't see this - advertised TC was €120k

When you get on board look at the role profile for L5 and align yourself to that. Operating at an L+1 level will build a great case for you. Additionally get to know the people you work with. Networking helps.

Above all, just do your job. You’ll be surprised at how much praise/kudos you’ll get for just doing your job & being reliable.

Hi All,

Need a little guidance here. I have a total of around 6 years of experience in software development. Did a certification in Pega System Architect back in 2016. Was working on a bpm tool in my last company which was eventually acquired by Genpact.
Then had to go on maternity leave from Nov 2018 and finally left working in June 2019.
I want to start working again. But confused about the role I will get now. Should I do some more certifications? If yes then please suggest a better path.
