Non-techie trying to get into Amazon/Google. Need some ideas
Wife is a techie and recently moved to NYC for a job we couldn’t say no to. I’m a non-techie (Materials Engineer) with 8+ yrs of industry experience with past 3 yrs in a leadership role managing handful engineers and projects.
Is there scope for someone like me to get into Amazon/Google in or around NYC and start growing there? I’m kinda topped out in my position and the next level up involves managing quite a few ppl in operations which would completely kill my WLB. That move would also tie me down further to the industry, making a pivot harder in the future.
