About this Episode

Welcome to Season 2, Episode 7 of the Launch School podcast. In this episode, I had a chance to chat with Sunny Beatteay, a senior software engineer at Digital Ocean and Capstone alum. This conversation was recorded a few months ago back in March, 2020. Many of you who hang out in the Launch School chat room have probably seen his name there. Sunny is always amazing to speak with because he’s so open and willing to share. Despite all his achievements, he has no ego and I hope through this conversation, it sheds light on the attitude and approach anyone at Launch School can take to reach their career goals.

In this conversation, we chat about day to day life at Digital Ocean, what projects he’s working on, how he got promoted so quickly just two years in, and he even gave a breakdown of his salary progression from when he first joined to his post-promotion salary. We also talked a bit about his post-Capstone job hunt and how it takes luck, confidence, and preparation to land an ideal job.

It’s a great conversation. By the way, if you take time to leave a positive a review for us on either Apple or Google, it’d help us spread the word. If you enjoyed this episode, we’d really appreciate it if you could leave us a good review. Thanks and I hope you enjoy!
