An M2 manager (team lead) leads the day-to-day work of an engineering team in terms of process and delivery needs, with limited people management responsibility. Team leads hold an entry level manager role, usually on a growth track from an IC to a manager. Team leads are usually responsible for a smaller team and take an active part in the team’s technical work like an upper-level IC.
