10x Developer

Definition - What does 10x Developer mean?

A 10x developer is an individual who is thought to be as productive as 10 others in his or her field. The 10x developer would produce 10 times the outcomes of other colleagues, in a production, engineering or software design environment.

A 10x developer is also known as a 10x programmer or 10x engineer.

Techopedia explains 10x Developer

The idea of a 10x developer or engineer has led to a lot of debate about whether such a type of person could exist. Some point to the subjective nature of code and engineering outcomes. Some show how writing code and developing software focuses on creative problems, so that, in theory, someone could do ten times the work of someone else. The debate raises a lot of interesting points about the skill sets of developers and programmers, and what really goes into these types of jobs.
