Question says it all. How difficult is it for product data scientists to pivot to MLE roles?

    Not that hard to move from one to another. Learn Spark, Kafka, Hadoop, etc., do a bit more coding. The lack of a PhD won't be an issue, though you'll probably get paid slightly less than someone with the degree.

    Engineering get paid more than product, and engineering > data science, so very easy to infer from there.

    Can a product data scientist become a MLE? Probably not unless you went to IIT for undergrad or something like that.
