Considering Intel -> IBM/Amazon/Microsoft transition for Chicago

I'm trying to relocate from the West coast (Oregon) to the Midwest to be closer to family. Intel has no presence out in Chicago, but IBM/Microsoft/Amazon is there. I'm a SWE with 15 YoE in designing HW validation software, but typical SW jobs in the area require too much domain knowledge for cloud, microservices, etc. I'm trying to find an infrastructure role that fits my current experience. Any suggestions on teams, titles, positions that I should apply for? If you know of a specific req that's even better. Thanks.

    Find in financial area such as high frequency trading. No software industry in Chicago. Google is the only one major software company having presence. Microsoft there is more about sales or integration.

      OP
      I like the idea of the fintech roles because there appears to be good overlap of the existing skillset. I used to work in functional validation and now I'm SWE. Fintech seems a little more hardware-oriented, which is what I've moved away from, but I feel like I still have the knowledge from both sides of the coin. What was your previous experience before joining two-sigma?

    Got any big data chops? Lots of demand for that at Oracle in the mid-West

    McDonalds is also hiring. Opportunities to quickly progress into management.
