Your tech background and interest in finance should line you up pretty well for a VC job.
Also market making prop firms might be good for you too. Figuring out complex high frequency models to trade in the market. Of course that's a skill that's easily transferrable over to hedge funds as well.
You would probably also be pretty good in Sales. It involves your social skills along with some finance.
All 3 of these careers allow you to "eat what you kill" and earn your compensation.Posted from my mobile device
