What is the job most related to competitive programming? As a competitive programmer, what do you think is the best job for you?

I am not aware of any work that is closely related to competitive programming, unless we are talking about competitive programming itself, and jobs in this area, such as problem solving, training, lecturing, problem testing, etc.

In fact, there are some people who make a living doing things as their main activity, but there are not many.

There are also people who do some kind of paid competitions (like TopCoder marathons) basically for work, but there aren't many either.

I don't know what the best job is for me, but I started working as a software engineer at Google last winter and I really enjoy it so far. I see absolutely no connection between my job and competitive programming, but I clearly distinguish these two: my job is my job, my side activities / hobbies are my side activities / hobbies. I don't feel like I need it to be strongly related, and it's not necessarily true that more PC-related work would be better for me.
