Returning to Data/BI Engineer or try moving to sales?
I worked for 3 years starting an internal facing BI team at Adobe. Worked on Spark pretty extensively along with Redshift etc. I quit to work on startups of my own - sold one and failed the next. Worked as a Data Engineering consultant in between, but tired of the 80% travel life.
So I’m looking for advice if it makes sense to transition into a Solutions Architect/TAM. Will it be a huge hit to compensation? Senior Data engineer jobs I am seeing in Souther California are around 145k TC
