You role, what you seek to accomplish, what you deliver, what you focus on.
Is what you design it to be.
The skills, the habits, the actions, the movements, the presentations are all yours to take and yours to own.
If you want to be a manager, act like one.
If you want to be a senior developer, learn what it takes to become one and start doing those things.
If you want to be a product manager, do what product managers do.
No one is stopping you from doing the role that you want to do. You might not be able to do it all at once, but slowly, with a plan, with steps, you will get there, you will become that role that right now you are seeing your team needs to have filled.
