I've been a software developer for close to 15 years and while I like most of it, there's one thing in particular that I love above all: optimization. Specifically optimization for speed.
It's the kind of work I can spend hours on without counting. I'll have fun doing it, fun thinking about it outside of work, I'll show up to work earlier for it, the whole nine yards. It's not very often that I get the opportunity to do that, but when I do get that I'm in software heaven. It's work I'm good at and love doing.
I've registered on StackOverflow email alerts for job descriptions that contain the word "optimize", but I feel like this isn't the best approach.
What, if anything, could I do to orient my career to doing mostly just that? To find or get job offers that center on that?
