I would caution anyone about the gaming industry - they grind as hard as we do, at least, and often aren’t compensated nearly as well.

PM is hard to break in to, but comp sci background will help a lot. But if you don’t want to do it, your main other options are: • sales • marketing (e.g., PMM) • customer success • growth (e.g., analysis to move prospective customers down the funnel) • BizOps/Strategy/chief of staff • Partnerships / biz dev • Supply chain / operations (e.g., hardware businesses, or capacity/demand modeling in two-sided markets/biz models — such as digital health) • probably something I’m missing
