How do I explain to 4~6 year olds what a *Director of Technology* / Engineering Manager does? I see four competencies/responsibilities as the most important for this role: People Management, Delivery Accountability, Sociotechnical system (team design, as-in team topologies), Software architecture & technical design (together with a software architect).
But I have no clue how to explain that in a super-basic way. I have a short presentation coming up for a primary school, so *literally* replies only please. Other parents have to do similar “tell us what your job is” talks.
