That sounds awesome. I'm still learning how to code so I can become a developer. I'll probably start looking into machine learning within the next 6 months. It's encouraging to hear that there are jobs like yours.For instance, I work as an analyst for an energy company.
I come up with ideas for improving their forecasting models, then have my colleagues test them/do the actual developing.
I do have to do some of the developing and forecasting myself, but I'm mostly in charge of improvements/fixing issues with the code and finding shortcuts for doing things more efficiently.
