‘Big Tech’ is suffering from a great resignation of workers — less because of pandemic-related motivations, but more because they’re inspired to join a company where siloes are broken and agility is praised. With many data analysts and engineers wondering if leaving enterprise tech for a startup is career suicide, for me it’s been the opposite. Working in a big company is similar to trying to make the boat row faster when you’re on the Titanic — you simply don’t get to make the impact you imagined. Data analysts and engineers are rapidly shifting gears, no longer pursuing corporate careers but instead looking for opportunities in high-growth startups. I was one of those who decided to take the plunge, excited by the opportunity to influence and impact the company’s trajectory by building solutions from scratch.
