I'm currently on my third engineering team at Pluralsight. While each team has had their similarities, they've also each had unique tech stacks and code bases. The first couple of months on a new team is a time of accelerated learning, especially if the tech stack is unfamiliar. When I'm new to a team I find myself wanting to contribute as much as possible, while also wanting to have the space to develop my understanding of the new and unknown. In my experience some tasks hit this balance better than others.
