Any Fellow UI Designers & Developers That have held both positions and large companies?

I’m on the job hunt but instead of just going for a typical Designer or Developer role, I want to do both. I’m not the typical designer who says they can develop. I’m also not the typical developer that says they can design. I’ve been a designer at companies like Microsoft, and I’ve also been a Software Engineer there.

I’m curious to know if there are others like me out there and I’m curious to known how you deal with it at your workplace. Or, are you one of the lucky few who has been able to do both during your current role?
