How to find a job in machine learning newbie?

Actually, this: a programmer with good experience in Erlang/Elixir, loaded systems, stream processing, etc.
Learn in a course on data analysis and machine learning from the HSE (full-time). There is an extremely strong desire to apply the knowledge obtained in the work, but in the data science/ML everywhere need people with serious experience in commercial development on the subject.
The gugleniya shows that the variants with application of Erlang/Elixir in this region is extremely small (in Russia, nothing is). It turns out that you need to completely retrain in python/c++ to do ML? Or am I missing something?

Yes, it is.

It turns out that you need to completely retrain in python/c++ to do ML?

Alternatively, if you see yourself in Data Science.

There will be time and desire, read the information below. I think will help to clarify and define your tools.

Yes, Erlang is not about machine learning. Probably, in the HSE, you even explained why. So you want to work - go to "the market", i.e. learn what they require along with ML and Big Data.
PS And how is it you manage to start the call in IT with Erlang/Elixir? As it is very non-trivial gate.
No, the sunset was pretty standard with PHP, then the transition took place in Erlang. And the interest in ML woke up recently. So it turns out that programmers ' experience for senior a, a, ML, I, high, junior. - kraig_Gibson commented on June 5th 19 at 22:09
usually when switching to another language/region is only one level lose (middle> strong Joon, senior -> middle) - dorian53 commented on June 5th 19 at 22:12
So , if you move, for example from frontend to backend, from web development to iOS development or even enterprise projects in game development. But the transition from Computer Science to Data Science (and Machine Learning in particular) is a completely different twist and a much more radical change of venue.
