    My current title is "Senior Software Engineer" and I am considering a promotion to "Software Development Manager.
    My current H1-b is with an SOC Code: 15-1132 (Software developer). The new job is in the same location.

    I also have an approved I-140 with a PERM pointing to (11-3021 - Computer and Information Systems Manager) which seems to be in line with my new offer.

    Do I need to amend my H1-B?
    Are there risks when amending the H1-b? Any?

    Any time there is a change in duties, such as taking on a supervisory role, you need to amend.
