How do I move from being a SOC Analyst to being a Security Engineer?

I've been working in one of two SOC's for ~5 years now. I think I'd like to try being a security engineer for a small-to-mid size company. How do I go about making that transition? There doesn't seem to be much crossover between SIEM-staring and security engineers in the businesses I've worked for to make a natural transition.

Are there any additional certs I should go for or MOOCs you recommend? I currently have a Sec+ and CySA+ from CompTIA.
