What’s Driving Data Science Hiring in 2019

Data science jobs are among the highest paying jobs around the world, thanks to the rapid pace of data creation and budding need to make sense of it all. Whether you’re a card-carrying data scientist or just a developer looking to round out your resume with new data science abilities, you can increase your marketability by knowing what types of skills employers are looking for in 2019.

The shortage of data scientists around the country has been well documented. The August 2018 LinkedIn Workforce Report found that there were more than 151,000 data scientist jobs going unfilled across the U.S., with “acute” shortages in New York City, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. While data scientists aren’t the only ones who can tell us what’s in our data or build a machine learning, their particular skillsets – mathematical/statistical competency, expertise in distributed computing, and business acumen – make them the prized “unicorns” who can whip a big data analytics or AI project into shape.
