      Anything that requires some sort of numerical assessment – so obviously things like accountancy, finance, statistics, engineering, cryptography, but also government policy (assessing impact of future policy), medicine, gambling (the mathematics of assessing odds is quite advanced), sport (look up moneyball) etc… Econmoics and business also require maths (running a business requires people to be understand how much moeny they are spending and making and use that information to plan for the future – another branch of mathematics).

      Any job that required computer programming is also better if you know some maths.

      any job related to machine learning

      jobs related to computational linguistics / natural language processing

      (if you go for linguistics, than it’s only about language; if you go for computational linguistics, then maths is there, too)
