93,500 Data Science Jobs Vacant Till Aug in India: Study

More than 93,500 data science jobs were vacant in India at the end of August 2020, according to a recent study by Great Learning.


The study conducted on jobs and hiring trends in analytics and data science domains claimed that India has contributed 9.8 per cent of the total global analytics job openings in August 2020 against 7.2 per cent in January this year.


While the industry did witness a decrease in vacancies (from 109,000 vacancies in February to 82,500 vacancies in May 2020), the demand has continued to be fairly consistent across key industry sectors.


The factors such as a year-on-year increase in funding in Indian analytics startups, investment in the development of enhanced analytics capabilities in India, and a greater proportion of jobs outsourced to firms based in India owing to the pandemic, contributed to the increased demand.


The current demand is dominated by MNC and domestic IT & KPO companies that are shifting jobs to India and are hiring in large numbers.


The report further revealed that there is a growing demand for mid and senior-level professionals with over seven years of work experience in 2020.
