APAC Data Science Report Reveals The Most Up To Date Salary Information For Professionals
By: Big Cloud
The report also provides key insights such as:
Years' with current company vs Years' Experience
We found that the respondents in Asia Pacific are on the whole, very experienced. However, when compared to the years they've been at their present company, we see a trend that over 75% have been at their current company for two years, or less. This is indicative of the continued lack of supply of Data Science talent and the heightened demand for these professionals.
The countries that pay more for PhD level talent revealed
We can see that countries like China, Japan and Malaysia, there is a greater difference in pay between Master's level and PhD level talent, where PhD's are more sought after for top level positions, and can command a higher salary as compared to counterparts in Singapore, Hong Kong or Australia, where because of heightened demand, companies are willing to pay those with Masters similar salaries to that of PhD level candidates to be able to fill hiring gaps within companies.
Changes in why people would seek new jobs
For a second year, higher earning potential remains the driver for people finding new jobs. However, it is interesting to note that there has been a shift in people's priorities for wanting to work on more meaningful project over the desire for a better work life balance. This could be due to an increased number of employers seeing the value of offering more flexible working arrangements for staff as the demand for this amongst workers increases.
"This is our most data rich Data Science survey to date, and we're extremely excited to share it with our network and audience." Says Chris Pearson, co-founder of Big Cloud. "I am hoping that it proves a useful resource for our clients and candidates alike and helps those to navigate the industry with more knowledge behind them."
