Worked as a Sr. Engineering manager and promoted to a director for a product development company in Washington DC. Experience of around 15 years with like 12 years coding and architecture, 3 years people management experience, during these 3 years have been involved in design and architecture specially around integrations across the teams.

How can I plan my switch to amazon, msft, slack or PayPal, LinkedIn and also what kind of interview I can expect. STAR format, people management or coding design?

What Are roles I should be targeting? TPM ? Sr. Eng manager ?
