Career Exploration: Engineering Manager vs CTO
We continue our career exploration series where we bring in experts with similar titles but different functional roles and responsibilities.
One thing both roles involve is representing the technology point of view to non-technical team members, external stakeholders, and clients while ensuring that the technical capabilities are adapted to its full potential.
In this session, we will address the differences between being a CTO and an Engineering Manager to help you better understand the differences and decide if these career paths are right for you!
Some of the topics that will be covered:
- Skills that are in common and need to be held by all technical managers
- Skills that are specific each role
- How to decide which path is best for you
- The best tools and resources to help you start and grow
- Any questions you may have about both career paths
