Bored with job. Leave before having an offer?

Tired and bored of the niche domain Im working in, dont feel its applicable to most general software projects (not backend, mobile, or ML). Not looking forward to the next 6 months of this project or future of team where Im not learning much anymore. Manager is clear this is what we work on.

2 yoe, TC 175k. Ive heard to optimize for learning, early in career, but with a guaranteed promo in a couple months to 210k TC, feel like I may not realize how good I have it and fear ending up in a worse position if I cant make the cut elsewhere. I have 10 recruiters awaiting phone screen dates, all should offer around 200-250 but no guarantee I land any of them.

Only 40 LC right now. Need a lot more practice. Been too slow to study with work. I feel like a fresh change and free time would be what I need to study up to 250 lc in a couple months and get offers. I dont have high hopes Ill do it if im still working. Not changing teams after promo because I dont trust other teams in Amazon based on the reports you all know. Only a matter of when, not if, I leave amazon. Have a few months savings and 90k investments, but strongly prefer not to eat into those, that would start being stressful.

What would you do?

    Definitely wait for promo. Will make it easier to negotiate for a better level wherever you go.

    If you code 10%, then what do you do for rest 90%?

  • Promo then Leetcode and see your options.

    You can also just try to switch teams once you have landed some good offers, it won’t hurt.
