Abstract: I will offer a high level taxonomy of data science/machine learning jobs that are currently regularly advertised in industry. This will be followed by a pro/con approach to working at a small/large company based on my personal experience of working at a startup. I will end the talk with my opinion on where I think physicists add value in industry (outside of any specialization like data science) and what to look for to achieve job satisfaction.
