|I've been programming since middle school, and have been working as a software engineer for the last 5 years. The pay is great (FAANG-level comp), but I'm extremely bored and considering leaving software engineering altogether.|
I'd like to better understand what career options other software engineers have explored.
If you are a former software engineer:
1. What are you doing now?
2. Why did you leave software engineering?
