Also would recommend if yuo’re going to split it, a Project manager/Scrum master is a better alternative to a lead dev/project manager. With the former the roles aren’t antagonistic, in the latter case one person has to do 2 very different roles.

Having been there; it's a difficult size to deal with. I'm certain
you'd benefit from a project manager already and I regret waiting 5
years to get one. Think we missed out/lost quite a bit of work due to
me judging half-assed project management with dev work.
