the data science people I've worked with in multiple VC backed companies were not engineers at all. They were either "data scientists" or had engineer tacked on to the name.

I'm continually exposed to new kinds of software engineering roles I never heard of at tech companies. (fwiw software engineer is sometimes still considered an inflated title.)
