My fiancée got a job in London which prompted me to start searching for a job in the UK. I'll be looking for a data scientist job in an established company (i.e. not a start-up). I am currently working as a postDoc but I have also co-founded a start-up that develops algorithms within health tech. Naturally, I'll not be looking for a job within another health tech company.
Now to the question! Will my involvement in the start-up pose any problems for me in my search for a data scientist job? It would be rather heartbreaking to have to give up my start-up completely. Will I be forced to sell my stake in the company or is that negotiable? Is it better for me to apply for jobs in the financial and insurance sector to try to minimize the business-overlap with my start-up?
Thankful for any good advice!
