Yes. You should be having this kind of career conversation with your current manager. Together, you should be able to find opportunities to grow and test out manager-like skills (e.g., hiring and managing an intern, mentoring junior devs, becoming a team lead, etc).

Camille Fournier's book, The Manager's Path, is a good read for learning about some of the common transitions from IC to manager to executive in software engineering.

Try "The Manager's Path" by Camille Fournier.

I highly recommend reading "The Manager's Path" by Camille Fournier. It's a great overview of the different things to consider while working your way up the ladder (specifically in engineering management).

Just read this, highly recommend it:

"The Manager's Path: A Guide for Tech Leaders Navigating Growth and Change"

It's the book I wish I'd had when I was in your position 4-5 years ago.
