Main Question or Discussion Point

I'm interested in both marketing (creativity, communication, persuasion) and engineering/computer science (theory and its application to develop new technologies).

What are some careers that combine the two?

I just ran across this -- it's more for a mechanical engineering position, but it may help you get an idea...

• Product Manager * new position, experience in distribution, OEM’s, working with Sales, inventory management, industrial, suppliers, sourcing. Must have business plan (implementation) and market study exposure. Abrasives, tooling or machining background a plus. BS and/or MBA also a plus. ; 10+ years experience. Salary - $95+ ; 35% travel
• Director of Product Management: all of the above plus experience in a $50 million/year business environment along with managing others. 15 years+ experience is necessary. Salary $130+

Any sort of product management or sales for a software company would fit. They have equivalent positions to what berkeman posted at companies like Oracle and Microsoft etc.
