Is it possible for a former startup founder that is now working as software engineer to transition to a project manager career?
I worked on my own startup for 2 years, released a product and then had to stop working on it as I was not having enough revenue.
I then moved into software engineering (I was previously a software enginner).
Now I found an interesting managerial position that is related to my software engineering specialisation. However the requirements are:
- 3+ years of experience managing software engineering teams
- background in product management for consumer services in the software industry with a track record of delivering products
- I did not have employees in the startup but only freelancer collaborators, so I can't claim that I managed a large team before
Many of the applications will have a managerial role.
What is the best way to present my CV to be able to be selected as valid candidate based on my startup experience?
I have also worked on a couple of other projects in my free time.
