The Engineering Manager Role
AlphaSights' Engineering Managers are technical team leaders early in their management experience. They are still honing their management skills with the support of more senior technical leadership, but excel at unlocking their team’s potential for high quality delivery. They manage both the technical and the people side of their teams; being both a career mentor as well as a technical mentor for their developers. They spend a majority of their time ensuring the technical excellence of their team, unblocking their team for maximum delivery, and communicating the team’s needs and progress to the rest of the organization. As an engineering manager you are expected to be able to write and optimize code, as well as ensure that your developers can do the same. You'll work closely with a variety of people in the business to arrive at the best solution, immediately see the impact of your work, and get feedback directly from users.

In either case, you should be skilled as an individual contributor as well as interested in running (and building) technical teams and holding them accountable to an incredibly high standard.
