Want to move to India, good roles

Google Big-G
May 23, 2018 37 Comments

I've been here at G for 3 years as a Quantitative Analyst, just now got promoted to RS. I want to move back in India, but finding it very hard to find good roles. Don't get me wrong I am getting positive calls but almost none of the positions are interesting enough. Google India is not challenging too.

Does anyone know of any good Data Scientist oriented positions in India? I spoke with MuSigma, McKinsey and others and all I could hear was consultant blabber; Amazon India sounded like a hell hole with immature Product Managers running the show and simply automating scripts for their Seattle overlords.

Do I have to switch domains and move to Product Management or are their any roles for DS back home?

    You can probably start a company that can predict which street will be have the most people shitting in it and then sell that data to the government so they can finally start cleaning the shit covered streets.

      The amount of misinformation in this post about India is too damn high.

      Great, how about answering OP’s question? OP would have reasons to be in India. No kid in America stopped going to school because their chances of getting shot is 12000% more than anywhere else in the world, right?

      12000% Jesus Christ man, learn to do some math. You can’t take absolute numbers, it’s relative to the population.

      Interesting thing is I corrected it the next minute. Looks like their replications are a bit slow.

    Do you want to be a product manager? Or is that just the kind of roles you’ve been seeing in India?

    Really doubt you will find many quality roles in India .Maybe PM will help
    But then again you may not find a quality PM position
