5 Tips to Stay Technical as a Manager

5 Tips to Stay Technical as a Manager
By lucianohgo • Issue #26 • View online

Hello hello and welcome to issue #26 👋🏾
Every single time I say to people that managers should focus on the team and avoid being the person making technical decisions and building I get some version of: “But in <Acme Corp> the managers aren’t involved and have become unable to guide people technically and be responsible for the technical output of the org.”
This is definitely a danger, abdicating control and giving autonomy back to the team comes with perks, but also challenges. One of them is remaining technical when we aren’t doing most of the work. So I dedicated this week’s content to that and how to think about staying technical. Hope you like it. If you do, as always, remember to share it and let me know!

Every piece of business advice should have a label that includes what stage of a startup it’s applicable for. Since these labels don’t exist today, your job is to filter the advice against whether it’s relevant at your current stage and for your startup. This is learned by doing.

Weekly, I write and explore topics on Building a Career in Tech, Leadership, and Creating awesome User Experiences. I'm a Senior Software Engineering Manager at QuintoAndar a (very) fast-growing Startup in Brazil. I was a partner in a Software House in the past, worked at AWS, and learned a lot from great leaders and peers along the way. I tap on that experience to decide topics, research them weekly and compile what I've learned so you can avoid making some of the mistakes that I did.
