The most interesting jobs involve stochastic calculus. Also, the most highly paid. You can't do stochastic algorithms property without a smattering of ergodic theory. You can't do machine learning without a good background in statistics and calculus and linear algebra. You can't do physical system simulation without differential equations. In future, quantum computation will replace classical for many tasks, and it is likely that software engineers for quantum computers will need a good grasp of banach spaces.

Or you could code games and accounting programs. Me, I'd die of boredom.
