Having the basics of coding down has helped me in all of my roles, I learnt the fundamentals, and especially today where I am a Data Product Owner, I understand how to talk to the engineers both in my team and outside of my time and understand their needs for requirements, and how engineers prefer to work. Coding has been the baseline for this.
Spending time as an engineer got my head around AGILE ways of working, so when I moved into a product role I had some great foundations. I’m not suggesting anyone who ever wants to work in tech should get a developer job BUT I do recommend you have a dabble in coding!!
