Next career move? Good software engineer, hate leetcode, burned out at 30
Blind I need some help. I've had some good success as an engineer. Received offers in the past as high as 300k in NYC finance. But thats the past, I'm approaching 30 and burned out on interviews and grinding leetcode. I could learn it all again and crack FAANG, but this will be the last time. I can't see myself grinding out these problems at 35. What should I do? What career would be good for me? I know tons of ml, distributed systems, some product stuff, but I'm very social. Should I move to sales? sales engineering? early stage startup? Move into management? I need help!
I will add, I do love programming, but if I'm being honest with myself, I will not be able to sustain these kind of competitive interviews. But I also dont want to be stuck at low TC. Really in a bind, and I suspect many older engineers are too.
TC: 0$, rage quit my last job
