The goal for any engineer in a software project is:
To show engineering skills, (even if it leads to overengineered code)
to show learnability, (even if the gazillion tools that've been added to the product only end up slowing it down)
to take initiative (even if you're not likely to finish the actual tasks given to you on schedule),
to show leadership (even when there's another architect or leader in the team, and you might be going around him at times as he probably thinks your idea is BS.)
And then, make a list of all this during review time.
