Some pretext: I have been a software developer for just over a decade and recently moved into management while still playing a huge role in the day-to-day development at my current job. I have been at the company for the majority of my career and spent my time moving up in roles that were likely created to encompass the work I was doing. I never discussed with my previous manager about what a career roadmap looked like and mostly just did my job and kept solving my problems and taking promotions.
I moved into a leadership role (title: Lead Software Developer) about two years ago, and last year my old boss had left the company - leaving the GM to tap me to take on the responsibilities of running the team.
I have been loving the job but one of the big concerns I have is that I do not know how to provide good guidance or structure for career growth within my team. Because of this, I am asking you - how are your teams structured and what paths for career growth do you have at your company?
Thank you in advance!
