Question What kind of job can I switch to from app developer role?

I am very tired of my current app developer job
I am currently an app developer

everyday have to answer how system work, everyday gt new thing happening. My work environment is fastpaced, dynamic

I just want to do the same thing and have a predictable workplace for 5 years. I master something for first year, then spend the next 4 years do the same thing that I am trained for.

Weekend have also standby duty. Current job: $4.4k.

I do not want to make technical decision anymore, I am only good in follow instruction.

The pace here is good damn fast, whatapps, email, slack channel. constantly will have people tag me and I have to catch up, keep up etc etc

I keep making wrong decision, cos my ability not there, and I really catch no ball of what technical thing they are doing, most of the time I agar agar only. I dun want to screw this project.

I want to leave this project gracefully, before they realise I actually just enduring and I feel I will get throw to more sai in 2021

Looking for non technical job, I don't want to touch programming anymore

- No weekend duty, more family time
- At least $4k
- follow instruction, I don't ask question
- No programming

Can convert to software tester or cyber security tester

Since you are a developer, I think you should be good enough to review other people soft code or break other people software.

Anyway, cyber security is like hit cake now and high pay.

software tester now is no longer the same as what it used to be. u need to know how frontend works in order to write automation script (java, javascript, python), u need to know how backend work to test them (api, rest, soap, postman, restassured, newman) , u need to know how DB work to validate them (sql, pandas), u need to know how to chain them up as CI pipeline (maven, npm, jenkins).
unless u want to do pure manual, then go ahead, u won't have much choice in coming year as no tester doing pure manual now adays.

Software tester also gt programming one (trust me I know), can I switch to a total different field like social care or do some administrative work? like work in a elderly home or something

How did you end up in app development in that case?

Sadly, app developer is the modern age blue factory worker.
That's why a lot of technologist. Want to start their website or startup. Then sell off become millionaire
