Big Data Jobs Index from icrunchdata


icrunchdata compiled an interesting index to help visualize the present state and future job growth trends in Analytics, Big Data, Business Intelligence, Data Science, Software Development and Statistics.



Todd Nevins from icrunchdata sent me a link to their Big Data Index, a way for visualizing the present state and future job growth trends in Analytics, Big Data, Business Intelligence, Data Science, Software Development and Statistics.

According to icrunchdata, job posting growth in the last 3 months:

  • Big Data (general) +26% at 462,817
  • Data Privacy +31% at 19,451
  • Marketing Analytics +19% at 27,516
  • Data Science +30% at 80,562

For comparison, we can look at indeed.com. The jobs with "Big Data" in the title or keywords grew extremely rapidly starting in 2011, although as of Nov 26, 2013 indeed.com finds only about 10,200 jobs with "Big Data" in the title, keywords, or company. Note that in the last few months of 2013 Big Data jobs stopped growing, which may represent a rebranding of these jobs, rather than slowing of demand.
