Do you long for a job where you could spend part of your week laser-focused on delivering product features and the rest on coaching team members?
At Crossover, we believe the top performer on the team should give first-line technical coaching. Managers in our partner organizations are active contributors to the team’s roadmap instead of simple task schedulers. With deep knowledge of the code base and product architecture, our managers provide detailed, insightful, and actionable feedback to the development team.
If guiding the team with your software development insights to improve the output quality excites you, now is your time to fast-track your career into management without sacrificing your technical expertise.
In most companies, this role typically includes a degree of project management. All project management rituals are automated and this role is focused on developing the team using technical excellence.
Within most companies, this role is at the same pay grade as Senior Software Engineers, but Lead Software Engineers are the managers of other Software Engineers and have broader responsibilities. While the main output of a Senior Software Engineer is code, Lead Software Engineers are focused on building a great team.
To be successful in this role, you must be deeply technical, learn quickly, and be able to simplify software design and source code by finding better implementation alternatives. You will build a great team by coaching others on the simplest solution for a technical challenge.
The most successful people in this role share these core skills:
The main challenge is to identify the simplest technical designs and create code simplifications for every case across multiple technologies, and translate these into insights for improving the team’s output quality.
Hands-on coding is required when you provide concrete individualized coaching to engineers. Our managers do not stay at the “buzzwords-level” (e.g., you need to improve your quality). They will review the actual deliverables of their team, come up with deep technical insights and then, shoulder-to-shoulder (in the virtual space), demonstrate how to actually perform the work. So you need to be a great coder and technical person.
Are you super-technical and spend more than 50% of your day-to-day on technical tasks? If so, you should apply.
After one year in the role, top-performers can apply for new positions and move up the career ladder. With proper guidance and career planning, you can become a VP of Software Engineering and eventually an SVP of Software Engineering. Your career path is dependent on your performance.
You will learn how to make better architecture decisions and deliver higher quality code. You will learn how to raise the bar for everyone on the team by providing actionable coaching.
