Best companies for Sales Engineers?

I've been working as an engineer for 10 years across a lot of the big companies (MSFT, ADBE, GOOG). I'm tired of the grind of engineering and sales engineering sounds like a pretty sweet gig all things considered. More interesting people, decent pay, travel, not as mentally draining, etc. The role seems more sustainable in the long run and better matches my personality anyhow.

What companies should I target for SE roles in terms of TC, lifestyle, (possibly remote?). I applied to GitHub via their website but without a referral I'm not sure of how likely it is I'd receive a callback.

      OP
      I'm fine with that. I just am tired of grinding out code, doing code reviews, writing unit tests, etc. I'd rather fly around, talk with clients solve things at a high level and move on.

    Why do you think sales engineering will be less mentally draining? It's pretty dynamic and all the random switching from topic to topic and customer to customer can be extremely draining
