Big data tools, CI/CD automation stuff, ability to work on different data types, working with REST calls, k8s if you want to get fancy May I ask what's motivating you to move in this direction? I normally read the opposite, folks trying to move to DS. Also, any reason you're focusing on DE instead of SWE? Latter pays better

Thanks for your reply! For the past 1 year I have been doing a lot of data engineering projects involving building data pipelines, orchestration, Spark etc and I find it more interesting than building ML models. Since I’m not from a CS background, SWE is a step too far for me so I figured data engineering is my best bet.
