I am a software developer with commercial experience in Python and mainly Scala working on high level programming, e.g. REST APIs, and only personal/university projects experience in C++.
I would like to work as a reverse engineer and I am very passionate about low level software. Do you believe working as a C++ developer would help in the transition to malware analyst? would it be worth it in order to achieve my goal, also considering the not increasing salary when changing job in such an horizontal way?
I would really appreciate your help given my level of confusion on how to approach this career change
Thanks in advance !!
