Can someone at one of the larger tech companies (Google, Airbnb, Stripe, for example) provide some insight for me?

I have 30+ yoe, with 20+ years as architect and tech lead at various mid-to-large companies. What is the highest level position I should consider applying for that would still keep my hands mainly in the code, not just managing others? Staff? Principal? I'm looking to make the big decisions, but also have fun coding it afterwards... Money is good, but not if I don't enjoy the work!
