By: Big Cloud
The report also provides key insights such as:
Years with current company v years' experience
30% of respondents are recorded as having 2-3 years' experience, which is telling of the rise in attraction of getting in to Data Science over recent years, as the number of people working in the market with between 4-9 years decreases by almost half. Interestingly, 58% have been at their present company for a year or less, indicative of the unbalanced supply v demand Data Science market.
A confident market
A large portion of respondents at 68% said they would find it easy to find a new job, and the top reason for seeking a new job was higher earning potential for a second year in a row. This is telling of the demand vs supply Data Science market, and also an indicator of the confidence Data Science professionals have in a hiring market where they can command better salaries for their high levels of skill and experience.
A rising interest in criminal projects
Each year, the coming projects people would love to work on in Machine Learning tend to be reflective of the current climate. In 2017, we saw a boom in interest in Data Scientists wanting to use Machine Learning for projects in detecting and combating Fake News. This year in Europe, we've seen an increase in Data professionals wanting to work on projects in crime, such as aiding police investigation, counter terrorism, and predicting terror attacks. This is very much a testament to what has happened in Europe over the past 18-24 months.
"This is our most data rich salary report to date and our first that concentrates solely on the European Data Science Market," Says Matt Reaney, Founder and CEO of Big Cloud. "I hope it provides our network and audience, both candidate and client, with a go-to resource for hiring and job seeking in Data Science for the coming year."
