Two months ago I joined a FAANG (Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Netflix, Google) company and I was very excited.
I have 6+ years of full-stack software experience and I have a master's degree in Computer Science (and very soon Ph.D. as well). It was my dream to work at company like this. However, the first day I joined I learned that this is not the same team I interviewed. In fact, they don't do any coding and I am basically a fancy QA that sends an email asking other teams to investigate issues.
The salary, however, is very high (50% more than my previous job) but I don't like the work at all. It's unmotivating and it's not challenging. It looks great on paper. I left my previous job after four years because of the same issue and have a chance to work here, but I am now regretting it.
What options do I have, I think leaving this job after a few months looks bad on my resume. I currently work remotely because of the pandemic and very soon they will ask everyone to come to the office and I don't want to move to another city for a job that's not challenging and kind of low level.

- my daily job description doesn't match the original job description I applied for
- the people I interviewed with actually code and the team I am working at is just QA
- on the first day I started the job my manager said we needed a person in this team so we decided to move you over, at that time I had no idea what this new team actually do
