Data Science Job Postings Jump 30 Percent in 3 months - Revolution Analytics

According to the icrunchdata Big Data Job Index, there are currently 81,836 job postings for data science jobs. Founder and CEO of icrunchdata, Ron Emery tell via email that's a 30% increase in listings compared to three months ago. Demand is strong in all Big-Data related areas, with 468,628 open Big Data jobs generally (up 31% compared to 3 months ago), and 62,534 Statistics jobs.

It's interesting to contrast the number for BI jobs at just 26,961: the demand today is in clearly big-data and forward-looking advanced analytics as opposed to backwards-looking traditional business intelligence.
