Job titles vary greatly between employers. I know of no standard. "Senior"
in one company might be the same as "junior" in another.

I worked for years in an organization where everyone had the title
"information developer." There were grade levels, but they appeared only in
personnel files, not in the job titles.

I have known of titles above "senior." A fairly common one is "principal."
I've also seen "senior principal, " which was a step above "principal."

Also, years of experience don't necessarily relate well to grade levels. In
a well-managed enterprise, performance and accomplishment count more than

I suggest you don't worry about whether you are "senior" or not.
