So I am less than a month into a great new job. The CTO assigned me some tasks and then handed me over to the Sen Dev who shot down those tasks as not being that important, which leaves me with not much to do except do my best to learn my way around the current products we are building and maintaining.
I don't know if this is a communication thing being so brand new, but I would like to get back to feeling productive and providing value where I can until I become familiar with our products codebase.
To be clear, its an actual task on the Trello board.
So, it's really concerning me that I get tasks assigned by one leader and then they get shot down by another.
How do I safeguard my future here and mitigate this dynamic?
