The Founder and CEO of the big data talent recruitment company icrunchdata recently mentioned BloomReach’s May acqui-hire of ShopLogic as a top example of startups bringing in top data talent. In an interview with Software Advice, a free online resource for software buyers, icrunchdata said that the increasing segmentation, abundance of big-data jobs and shortage of big-data specialists has spawned more creative methods of recruiting elusive “business” big data specialists – citing BloomReach as a top case study.
icrunchdata also brings up some interesting points about the growth and career segmentation that data science has made on the job market, saying that:
90 percent of the world’s data was created within the last two years; and
by 2015, there will be 4.4 million positions specific to big data globally, with 1.9 million of those jobs being in the U.S.
ShopLogic CEO Kevin Chan and CTO Dennis Maskevich joined BloomReach to help the company meet increasing demand for its big data marketing applications by joining the product and engineering teams to build, expand and upgrade its product offerings.
