I think "Coding" as a job can be best analogous to an old job called "Samurai".

A good samurai's aim is to be the best at skills. His all work is dedicated towards a "kingdom". Every samurai doesn't wants to become a king. They just want to server their king.

And the King's duty is to take care of its army and people. I think king's jobs is highly overrated. In real life its difficult to be a king. In the end its just a job with lots of responsibilities.

Then the samurai should behead the king and redistribute all of the fine luxuries that the samurai earned for the king to his samurai buddies. Then simply find a clerk to do the king's old job.
