How would you interpret the role of SDR Team Lead on a Resume? Would you view it as a managing role?
Would love to hear all of your opinions on this!

Head of Growth
It's likely more of a mentor/junior manager position if I had to guess. Like they had their own personal quota AND were responsible for managing SDRs.
Common stepping stone into an SDR management role. Would I view it as a managing role? ...kinda?
+1. I would say it's not necessarily a pure managing role, more-so a coaching role if anything.
I think it's important on the interviewee's side to outline what exactly their role entailed of and on the interviewer's side to dig deeper to see what exactly their experiences are.

I'd view it as a leadership role, which isn't too shabby.
Account Executive, EIAS/Compliance
From my experience as a prior SDR lead and an AE lead elsewhere, it's coaching/mentoring and isn't perceived as a leadership role. Tried using it to get a management role and it didn't work out.
Call me what you want, just sign the damn contract
I'd say it's management adjacent. If somebody was a team lead, I would consider him or her for a manager role but with two caveats:
1) I don't think you want that person managing a massive team but rather a small one, at least at first.
2) There would need to be some tenure and measurable results there. What did that person do and in that role and what was the impact?
Sales Enablement Manager
I would see that as managerial, but I think "Manager" makes more sense
Have you even been a team lead or a player/coach for an AE team? What was the experience like?
What's the better path? SDR Team Lead or MidMarket AE

How do you manage a stubborn SDR (not technically her manager)?
