I have experience over 20 years in IT.
- The first 10 years as Software engineer/manager. During that time, I was a top Java programmer only and used to manage 20 developers. I can get a letter from CIO level while I worked there. It was not a product led company.
- The next 5 years, I was Architect in Ericsson. Again, it was not a product company. I can get a letter from this company as well at some senior levels.
- Then, I have developed a healthy food business creating mobile app for the UK market. I had to shut down my company as I did not make money and no budget left.
- Now I am working in Data & Analytics domain as Chief Architect in UK. But that is not a product-led company. I can get a letter from my boss here. The only exceptional thing I had done there is that I came with several innovation ideas in Analytics. One of those ideas is marketable. Thus, I am keeping to myself to develop it on the side. Once I have done with the POC, I am planning to use this idea to quit the company if I get the Global Talent visa and open up my own business to make it happen. The idea is all about ML & AI. I am also coding it.
Does it makes sense? Currently, I am on Tier 2. And I do not want to wait another 2 years to open up my business and stuck with the company I am working for. That is the motivation.
Should I go ahead with the above evidence? Does it fly or just difficult?
