I’m Android eng in my late 20s with ~6 years of experience and a couple more years with various stuff (almost never used anything of it in the last 6 years). I’ve been working in product dev all the time.
I feel the type of tasks I have at my work now is pretty simple (just add a couple more buttons, fetch here, post there). I learn nothing new in my position. I tried looking for other teams in my company but the tasks seem similar.
I though of switching to something more promising for the next 5 years (ml/ai), but no teams accepts people without industry experience.
Any thoughts? Anyone found themselves in the similar situation?
If you decide to to full fledged data scientist, you may find unique problems there but again, in a big company you will likely work on the same scope, repeating similar work over and over.
Just my experience, YMMV
Maybe consider going into backend.
