Moving To Seattle - Non-Technical Role
I'm considering moving from the Bay Area to Seattle, mainly for cost of living reasons. I have a reasonable offer from a local tech company... but I'm worried about the long-term career impact. In short, I'm worried that even if things work out, once I want to move on, I'll have to head back to SF to find new good roles in my field at interesting, smaller companies... particularly since I'm moving for a business role. (I'm not interested in joining Amazon or Microsoft and will miss the vibrancy and diversity of the Bay Area scene.)
Put another way, while lots of second offices in the Seattle area for major companies create new opportunities in engineering, it's hard to tell if those same roles exist at scale for non-engineers. Curious if anyone else has moved for the same thing (marketing, strategy, etc.) and whether or not you've found other opportunities that interested you over time.
