I'm a very experienced guy (PhD, 35+ YOE, Principal SWE level) living in So Cal, looking to work in ML, AI, self-driving cars, autonomous systems, etc. The only hitch is that I want to continue to work remotely (like I have been doing since 2001). Are there any companies (Bay Area or otherwise) that are accepting of remote work for senior employees? I know Lyft is not, NVIDIA sometimes is (depends on manager) but usually isn't, not sure about Google/Waymo, Uber, Apple, etc.

- Control4 rIgc86moreOP@Yolo yes I have data to back my claims. It takes about 2 seconds of Google searching to discover that "Elon Musk says people need to work around 80 hours per week to change the world" or "Elon Musk’s SpaceX shortchanged its workers and now it must pay" etc. I also have a relative who works at SpaceX who confirms the very long hours.
Also, there is a middle ground between working absurdly long hours on one hand versus "getting paid to retire" on the other. Most of us want to work a reasonable number of hours on projects we enjoy and believe in, while still having enough time left over to have a life outside of work.Jan 9 0

- Microsoft / Eng YKBA30If you're okay with shorter term engineering projects and a bit of consulting-style work, the CSE team at Microsoft has a bunch of high-level IC data scientists and machine learning engineers. Most of the org is fully remote. Search for CSEFY-19 on careers.microsoft.com to get an idea of the types of positions available.
