Exploring Career Roles in Analytics


The Indeed data science team did some analysis on their user behavior data for people who searched on "data science". The graphic above summarizes the findings very nicely: roles in data divide into five buckets, and searchers seem to use the term "data science" as an entry point to all of them.

The role breakdown maps to my own anecdotal experiences about how cutting-edge teams are organizing themselves. I personally question the BI Developer vs. BI Analyst dichotomy—I'm not sure if long-term those need to be different people.

Note: The original title of this post, "There's No Such Thing as a Data Scientist" is super-clickbait-y and doesn't reflect the core insights of the post itself. FTFY.
