(IE Manager) Moved to Austin because my wife got a job with Google. How do I transition my skills into a tech company?
My wife got an oppurtunity to join a Tech Company so we moved to Austin Texas. I currently am an Industrial Engineering Manager who works from home 50% of the time and travels the other 50%. I manage three IEs across the country as well as own the labor management programs across our distribution centers (CA, MI, KY).
Our distribution centers have an upgrade cycle that that is lead by our IT department but all configuration and most mod requirements are created through me and my manager who is the Director of Industrial Engineering. I am proficient at SQL, the WMi system we use (software: Manhattan) and love data analysis.
I have two questions for you what jobs in tech companies could I apply for, even if i have to step down from a manager role (at first) I actually love managing professionals. Second, what programming labguages/ skills should I learn to join a tech company as a sales or customer engineer?
Main reason im looking wven though i love my job is that I only make 112k after base/bonus/stock, midwest company for ya...
