Probably....just find a similar role. Keep in mind that google a manager position is just that - a position.

In most consulting firms...manager is the position you move to after consultant. At google...you can be an individual contributor and get ahead. Manager is purely a people mgmt role.

What this means for you is that you need to look for a position that needs your skills...don't focus on manager roles.

I did not get it. So shall I be looking for a people manager role. If yea. Then is it L5 or L6. Or should I prepare myself for a product manager or program manager role ?

Don't aim for a manager role unless it's product mgmt. Just focus on getting hired as an IC.

Aim L5 or Lower (don't remember your years of experience)

Ic = individual contributor

Best thing you can do is just go in and be yourself....most product managers that I know have deep skills in their area and usually have done something similar in their previous roles.

Sounds like you have the product delivery - not sure about your tech skills but whatever.

Good luck
