IT job spotlight: Data scientist

It’s a great time to be a data scientist.

These professionals are responsible for helping gather and manage an organization’s data in a way that’s meaningful to business decision makers. The right candidates have experience working with major database platforms, are experienced coders and must have strong analytical, quantitive and problem-solving abilities.

They’re also in high demand — and generously compensated — with data scientist claiming the top spot on Glassdoor‘s best job of 2017 and Robert Half Technology‘s tech jobs to watch list.

Data scientists earn between $110,000 and $163,500, and the field is growing at a rate that is faster than average for other occupations, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, which expects the profession to grow a whopping 19 percent from 2014 to 2024. (The BLS places the profession in the “market research analyst” category.)
