What does an Engineering Manager do?
An Engineering Manager manages a team of engineers, overseeing their work, providing technical feedback, and helping their company’s engineering organization ensure that projects are completed to quality standards and on time.
How is an Engineering Manager different from other senior engineering roles?
While this depends on the company and company size, an Engineering Manager is often the first leadership role and next step from an individual contributor role. Many Engineering Managers will also be expected to be contributors themselves, and work with their teams on projects in addition to their management responsibilities.
