Hey Daniel --

I'd be interested to hear your perspective on the career path from engineer to head of product. Can you talk about why you chose to go down the product route? Do you think this is a path more engineers should take? 

Context on why I'm asking:
I'm someone who enjoys IC engineering, wants significantly more responsibility, but I'm not huge on people management. I'm a product builder at heart and want to stick close to providing value for customers. Being in a position to make more decisions about what product we are building and why sounds appealing to me. 

Looking forward to your response, thank you!
