I started out in PM - mainly 3 years in the legacy infrastructure companies, then went to SaaS product marketing and then continued down the product marketing path in the integration, API, and analytics space. Rose to a Director level of PMM (with 1 direct report) making $185K, $20K bonuses, etc (TC came to about $250K). So 8 yrs of PMM basically. And 2 years of engineering work well before I became a PM. I’m pretty technical (can talk about JSON, Spark, Kafka, Docker, Kubernetes, databases) because my audience has been IT, but not so technical that I can understand code. Can I ever go back to being a PM? I don’t want to take a pay cut though. What level of PM could I get? Could I get a Director of PM position (as an individual contributor)?
