Some details on these hands-on leadership roles:
Very important hire is a Lead Engineer to mentor their juniors “I need several other experienced senior software leads.
Someone who not only can program and design, but also who is able and willing to mentor and manage junior engineers. Our junior/senior ratio is 4:1 right now and I’d like it to be more like 3:1 or 2:1.”
“I believe that the ratio of coding to management is either 70/30 or 30/70. I have never seen anything in between those work in reality. I have 3 leads and two of them are 70/30 (mostly coding) and one is 30/70 (mostly designing/managing/mentoring). I could probably hire either ratio, but I honestly believe that most teams as a whole are more productive with a 30/70 lead (more architect/coach than player) so it would be fantastic to find someone who is ready to be as much a coach as a player. Someone who knows how to leverage their experience to make a team of smart inexperienced programs into a machine rather than just being an individual superstar. Expect to lead 2-4 junior engineers depending on their ability to manage/coach.
