About The Pragmatic Engineer Newsletter

The #1 newsletter for engineering managers and senior engineers on Substack. Written by engineering manager and senior engineer Gergely Orosz (previously at Uber, Skype/Microsoft, and high-growth startups).

What to expect:

  • Weekly emails for paying subscribers (plus bonus ones). One free article per month (plus occasional bonus ones) for free subscribers.

  • Actionable advice for engineering managers and engineers. Topics covered are relevant to those working at tech companies. Get tools and insights to become a more efficient engineering leader. If you use just one approach to make your project, team, or company more efficient, the weekly newsletter already pays for itself.

  • Big tech and high-growth startups focus. Tech is accelerating rapidly: but some fast-moving companies are ahead of the rest of the pack. What are they doing differently and why? I go deep.

  • Join 20,000+ subscribers on the most popular engineering leadership newsletter on Substack.
