I might have to move to Florida in the summer due to unfortunate family circumstance.

Anyone know of interesting companies besides Magic Leap, in Florida?

Looks like MS,Google etc only have cloud sales in Florida.

YoE 10yrs (UX,XD,Visual Design) now working with AI @MS Seattle.

Thanks <3

    If you do AI, MagicLeap would want you for that Mica AI thing.

      I have been looking for ML positions in South Florida but Magic Leap only has ML positions listed in the Bay, do you know if they are looking in Plantation??

      Yea we are. Internal politics is why the positions all say CA.

      I currently work on AI but I am not a SWE, I’m UX/UI. And mostly I do customer facing feat, or research driven efforts around different topics.

      I know that ML is the most well founded startup in the history of start ups, so what kind of compensation would I be looking at with 10yoe?

      Talked to my boss @MS and he said he would look into it but it was unlikely since it’s closely tied to hardware and prototypes etc.

      How do one go about applying for a role and then drop that you have to work from Florida remotely. Seems like a tough ask, especially from FANG?
