The only problem is that, for the vast majority of companies, CPU time isn't the major bottleneck. I don't think there are many companies who do so advanced algorithmic stuff that it takes hours to complete them, unless you're doing some ML (or other) processing in the background.

In that case, however, you should very definitely (as in, I'm not even considering an alternative) go with Python/Cython, as you will develop many times faster and your program will have near-C speed.

My current favorite is ShedSkin, which compiles your (unmodified) program written in a subset of Python (not a particularly limiting subset, mind you) into C++ which you can then compile (and link as a module, if you like).
