I love the company I work at but they are forcing everyone to return to office after two years working fully remote and the most successful eight quarters the company has had in years. People are leaving left and right forcing me and other team members to pick up the slack. For many reasons I do not want to return to office and they are standing firm on their policy. It has forced me to consider other opportunities. Anyone have any recommendations on remote opportunities?

I have a reinforcement ML algorithm that reads historical data for a stock and tries to make a prediction on its future price. The training data is 20 years of daily indicators and the evaluation is 1 year while the testing data is also 1 year.
