The demand for data scientists is at an all time high. In fact, a recent LinkedIn study found that US-based business need more than 150,000 data scientist jobs filled. And they need them right now.
The reason for this demand lies in the massive amounts of data that businesses in every industry are now able to collect through digitization and technology. New data is available all the time, volumes are increasing and businesses need to use that data to optimize functions and, quite frankly, to run at all. Using this data properly can mean the difference between business success and failure, and a data scientist is the key to unlocking the story behind the data.
