    That seems like ds analytics; that team/role is not challenging for a PhD graduate, try ds infra or core ds for more technical/ research based data science role (and they both pay more)

    Seems low for a PhD with 5 years experience. Both RSU and base. Where did you do your PhD from?

      Sorry, I meant less machine learning. Even research scientist use these but they quite often use or improve the machine learning algorithms.

      Not all of them. Many are working building pipelines and analyzing results of algorithms rather than building their own.
