Being an engineering manager doesn’t mean any code though! You have the ability to roll up your

sleeves and code, review code, and coach other engineers to engineering best practices. And, in

collaboration with the tech leads, you’ll focus on technical architecture, system design, and

managing the near term goals of every squad.
