Moving into a Tech Lead role is an exciting opportunity! It’s a great way to learn a whole new set of skills and gain more autonomy and influence over your team’s direction than you had as an Individual Contributor. And because it’s relatively easy to move back-and-forth between IC and Tech Lead it’s a great way to learn what you like, and don’t, about management and test the waters of the Management track.

To help you decide whether the Tech Lead role is for you, we've put together a 16-question quiz. At the end, we'll let you know whether your answers point to giving it a go, or staying where you are for now.
