Is SEO a lost game for a startup? I read a new perspective arguing that for SMEs, competing on SEO is a long and constant fight against the algorithm. Bigger companies have the specialists and budget to undertake the challenges but for new companies, it is much harder.

Any fresh thoughts?

Thoughts on the below role?
Got messaged about an analyst job doing the preliminary discovery stuff including dashboards. But not for the business, but to give recommendations to data scientists about where to focus.

Also worried about career prospects. I've been wanting to turn business facing, but becoming the only DA on a DS team seems like it'd be a dead end with promos?

If your primary purpose is career switching, AWS is probably the way to go. It's the largest provider, which makes it easier to find and switch positions. If you're targeting specific companies though, your best bet is to find out what they use, and learn that.
Good point, thanks!
