There will be no data science job listings in about 10 years, and here is why. There are no MBA jobs in 2019, just like there are no computer science jobs. MBAs, computer science degrees and data science degrees are degrees, not jobs.
I believe the reason companies are hiring people into data science job titles is because they recognize there are emerging trends (cloud computing, big data, AI, machine learning), and they want to invest in them. There is evidence to suggest this is a temporary phenomenon, though, which is a normal part of the technology hype cycle. We just passed the Peak of Inflated Expectations with data science, and we are about to enter the Trough of Disillusionment.
