Are you an engineering manager? πŸ‘©β€πŸ’»

It’s hard to be a good engineering manager. We often struggle to accept what moving from senior engineering positions to management means. A switch from being an experienced domain leader to almost a junior position and a separate career. We need to share our experiences to grow as the domain same as the software did in last years thanks to open source.

Are you wondering why management is important? πŸ€”

People are a critical factor in the success of your business. You attract, hire and grow engineers in your company. But on average, engineers change jobs every two years. Direct, honest and excellent management is the most crucial way to increase retention. People leave managers, not companies.

Excited to see you! πŸ‘‹
