Ends on

StaffPlus is launching in NY! 

We'll be tackling all of the challenges of technical leadership on April 5.

Welcome to StaffPlus

This year, and for the first time ever, we'll be debuting a conference specifically catered to senior individual contributors. The role of the Staff, Principal, and Distinguished engineer is a tough one - and requires as many leadership skills as the management track - and so why don't we provide leadership support to these roles?

We'll be tackling what it means to be a senior individual contributor in today's engineering landscape; thinking about navigating your role as a leader; how to frame your strategic thinking; how to bring your organisation up a level technically, how to roadmap, and more!

We’d love to hear about:

  • Leadership skills for senior ICs
  • Technical road mapping, planning, and long-term strategy
  • Influencing, mentoring and coaching
  • Tech, scaling, architecture, improving system performance and reliability

Before you submit

Before you send in your proposal, head over to our website and read our guidelines. There you'll learn what we provide you if your talk is chosen, what makes a successful submission, and the kinds of themes and topics that we're interested in.


The CFP will close on 13 December 2021 at 12:01am PST, 3:01am EST, 8:01am GMT. You will be notified no later than eight weeks after this date if you’re invited to speak. If you’ve purchased a ticket in the meantime, we will refund it if you’re invited as a speaker. The questions we ask are not shared beyond the programming committee.

Any questions?
