      So i assume L4? I think now is the best time to switch cause you can't get down leveled. Grind leetcode, try to network (or better get on a project with) SDMs.

      But how do I make the switch? Actually I am okay at leetcoding and did around 100 of them while I was preparing for data science roles. I know basic concepts trees, recursion etc

      Do you not want an answer to your question? How are we supposed to advise you based on just that data point? Pfffft having to explain this to someone who does data science 🙄

      I have done pipeline building and automation in my team. I have knowledge in ML : classification/regression and have worked on use cases related to that. Also built a time series forecast.
      On cs side I felt I am good at leetcoding and cs basics complexity, trees, basic DS. No knowledge of design. My gf was a cs grad and I was better than her at solving leetcode. She got a job in credit karma
