Being a Product Design Lead

13 days ago from , Super Dispatch

I work in a startup company for 5 years as a product designer. When we started building our company I was only one designer in our team. Now we have more than 50 employees and 5 designers. After hiring some designers the company leadership suggested me to continue my career as a Product Design Lead. So I’m more than a year in this role. To be honest I hate being a Design Lead at the moment. Because I don’t like to work as a manager. I like to designing products. Bit in our company no one can take this role right now and we can’t hire Design Lead at this moment. Design Leaders, what do you think, should I continue my role as an individual contributor?
