All, thanks for responses. Time to brush up on coding interview skills
@SRF1, don't be so quick to assume I'm a "he" with a CS degree👍

Cheap labor writes shit code. You can't have less intelligent people building a platform because code is pretty much all mini logic problems. Otherwise Google would have outsourced all their devs a long time ago.

Op you already have the CS degree, so personally I think you're set. Just get back into leetcode to brush up your skills, do an example project if you have time, then you should be able to land an engineering role in high tech if that's the path you want

^agree with the above. Most of the code i see is abysmal and I'm not even a great coder. When I see good chode my first thought is, "what black science is this?"

Not coding implies you are at a relatively senior position. Note that coding can be outsourced to cheap labor. Your design and customer focus roles wont.

@Deloitte1 consulting, 2 years out and you assume he's in a senior role. Anyone who calls themselves senior after 2 years needs a reality check.
