From Software Engineer to Managing The Responsibilities of A Product Team
7 September

Shilpi, Senior Engineering Manager at Slack, has spent most of her career as a product engineer and started to think about what the next step was for her. She spoke with her manager and asked if she could get involved with a product team to see what it is like to work on a product from beginning to end. Her manager was happy to help her get involved in many of the conversations related to the product teams. Due to her background in infrastructure and engineering (she managed an Automation Engineering team at Slack for 2 years), her manager thought she would be valuable to a product team. She would be capable of providing feedback and a different perspective to produce quality products. The contributions that she made ultimately ended up with her landing a promotion and took on management responsibilities of a product team of about 3 (now 15) individuals in January of 2019.
