    I have that.
    1. Currently a Sr Director Tech at my company
    2. Consistent growth pattern from a line manager to Sr Dir over 7 years (4 promotions)
    3. 5+ years of people management
    4. 2+ years of managing other managers

    The one thing that I don’t have is “recent” experience with a product company. Mostly in consulting

    But apart from that like I said
    1. Good with behavior interviews
    2. Good with system design
    3. Only given 2 coding screens (yelp and a start up passed them both)
    4. 150 LC (mostly medium and easy, < 10 hard)

    Doing everything I can, including ready to take EM/SrEm role which maybe a bit of a step down but tc should make up for that.

    challenge is getting say 10 calls for EM/SrEM role from top 10 companies so I get like 5 onsite and hopefully more that 1 offer.

    So asking for help here

    The trick to getting recruiters to respond to you re: eng leadership... is to already be an engineering leader. Rise up internally, and you won’t have any trouble finding a new role.

    But for reals.... any help will be much appreciated. Without a refer it seems impossible to get a recruiter to talk to me about an engineering leadership position.

    I guess your post doesn't give enough incentive
