There are always options available, some people have to work harder/be more creative in accessing those options. You have open source which allows you to work on the type of projects you enjoy and who knows becoming friends with other contributors could lead to jobs in that type of field. There is the option of working on your own projects, for which really sky is the limit. You could try going to a startup where there is always a challenge to be solved.

Regardless of what you do, you have to have your own initiative, a path isn't gonna just appear out of thin air and open for you, you have to open it up yourself.
