I have reached this point in my data sceince journey that I am left wondering if jobs are the only way out for me...

I am highly skilled in Hadoop, Machine Learning and now getting into Deep Learning algorithms...

I am bored with having to be employed, I want a way out...any ideas? I would still like to use my skills in my life but what other options exist out here...

I am open to ideas and collaborations....

  • $\begingroup$ Are you thinking of becoming self-employed or creating a start-up? Both of these would normally be considered "jobs" in normal use of the English word - however, they do mean that you do do not work directly for an employer. If you can focus your question on to one specific goal that you see as the "way out", and write a question that assumes that is what you want to do (plus phrase it to be about something objective - such as how to best search for start-ups looking for data scientists). You can ask more than one question, in order to keep each focused. $\endgroup$ May 9, 2017 at 9:40
