The Engineering Manager's Survival Guide

Backstory 💡

I'm Nico, since 2009, I have acted as a software engineer, lead developer, technical project manager, tech lead, engineering manager, vice-president of engineering, and chief product officer.

During my current journey, I led and grew a team from a few engineers building a new product to a department of 70+ teammates delivering an enterprise suite.

The hardest personal shift was the transition from software engineer to engineering manager. Since then, I've been mentoring engineering managers working in different companies and various fields.

During these mentoring sessions, a lot of common questions are coming up. That's why I decided to write The Engineering Manager's Survival Guide. 👩‍💻

Who are you? 👥

  • software engineer or team leader and you wonder if you should make this career move?

  • just promoted to engineering manager and you need help?

  • seasoned engineering manager and you want to refresh your knowledge?

  • VP of engineering looking for a guide to train new engineering managers?
