      if you already familiar with python then pyspark could be next step. But it really depends what you want to heads towards. Pyspark for building data pipelines, or learn scikit for machine learning models

    How about product management. One very imp skill for a good product manager is that she/he should understand data. Given u have that experience it is worth exploring. You can join Product school and network with people. I think entry level product manager are paid well in most of the companies.
