I graduated in mid 90s with a degree in EE. Got a job in a research company doing VLSI for a good 10 years (more or less) designing vlsi and SOC based design. However there was a restructuring in the company and I got moved to do system based level design using FPGA and a bit of firmware and software. Less than 5 years of doing that, there was needed manpower in the company to do higher level tasks involving Big Data and linux system administration and I fit the bill due to my Linux background. So that's how I left my EE based work and now doing infra stuff using on-premises cloud and perhaps looking towards public based clouds such as AWS, Google etc. in the future.
