mle falls into swe category for some companies so I assume they have higher TCs.. is it true?

      really is overrated. Can’t even set up their own production models or pipe their own data......and I don’t mean some pandas manipulation in a notebook

      OP
      I tried switching from swe to ds but then I realized productionizing the pipeline is more important

      Trust me u do not want to switch to DS from SWE. Are u DE function now?

    From my understanding:
    MLE ~ real DS > DE > fake DS

      OP
      Thanks. MLE often requires deep learning experiences which i don’t have. Might go for DE path and switch to MLE

      MLE doesn't require deep learning. It's good to have.

    From what I’ve seen: swe> ds> mle> de. At pure ai companies ds> swe

      Ds being ml research based, not an analytics monkey

      why is mle lower than swe? seems like there’s a lower supply of se with tensorflow + spark experience than front-end/backend etc

    Whoever invented the term “data science” really fucked over an entire industry. Because no one knows it If means “guy who can write excel functions” or “hardcore stats/math guy who can write algos from scratch.” And CS/SWE don’t understand the field because their IQ is too low. Typically MLE >= SWE > DE >> DS

    Totally depends on the company .
    If the DE/DS work is big data processing,ML etc you will be paid equal to SWE.
    Else lower (Analytics roles)
