There are also fields within software that don't require low level languages. Ops/infra, test automation, DBA, etc.

It seems to me that a lot of folks just kind of stumble into these paths rather than being presented with them.

We have some test automation people! They're selenium wizards.

There is way more to test automation that just selenium (or other web-ui tests.)

If you're attempting to attract MORE LinkedIn recruiters, you're doing it wrong. So many InMails get wasted on me weekly.

Not more, but ideally not ones for manual testing positions. Or Java/C# devs. Selenium Wizard is a clever enough phrase that succulently wraps up what kind of gig to contact about.
