>>53322552>I like programming so I like the job.
It's OK but not enough that I want to do it on my free time. I guess the older you become the less motivated you get or something. Or just get fed up with corporate politics that is present everywhere. >I like contributing to something big that has had a positive impact on the world.
I've made software for airplanes, trains, SIGINT, fighter jets and other weapon systems. I guess I contributed to a better world too. Need them accurate weapons allowing less civilians to die. Not that I really care in the first place. It's just a job. >You probably need a degree to get to the live interviews, but honestly if you're good enough to pass the phone screen they will probably bring you in for a live interview.
I'm familiar with those systems. You need to be headhunted to even get past the first screening without a degree. Since I don't have linkedin due to reasons above the probability to be headhunted by lazy people is zero.
Now that I think about it I have probably nothing to offer to Google unless they need someone developing an autonomous car with smart weapons and SIGINT.
