Firms traditionally don't exclusively hire based on project needs. Also, some service lines lag behind others. So all of these posts about these firm wide layoffs, look at how your service line/market offering is doing. It's really that simple in my opinion. Also D2 - who was your snide remark directed to?

Hi all! What are the differences between senior/staff SWE and software architects? Are architects still a thing? I'm causally searching for a new position (my job had a 50% layoff last month and the survivability of the company is sketchy) and I've noticed senior and staff SWE roles sound like they have a lot of architectural designing and leadership responsibilities while not focusing on coding as much. Is this normal? I love mentoring, but I also don't wanna be in meetings all day. 😕
