Tech Jobs – Future of data-driven work 

Data Scientists, Data Engineers, and related roles are no longer the corporate unicorns that no one understands. On the contrary, almost every company is desperately looking for them.
This is why companies are currently facing the challenge of attracting people from the field of data analysis, because the battle for capable employees has begun.

Back in 2012, Harvard Business Review already ran the headline, “Data Scientist: the Sexiest Job of the 21st Century” which hasn’t changed ten years later.

At the DATA festival #online 2022, various companies, like DHL Group, BWM Group and Temedia, spoke about the topic of tech jobs and presented their current challenges and measures in this regard.

Karolina Stosio is Lead Data Scientist at Temedica and she co-leads the munich chapter of DATA festival’s special partner “Women in Big Data”. In her presentation, she showed how wide the current selection of open positions in data is. In addition to vacancies in data analysis & AI, data storage & processes there is also a need for data acquisition and data production & sales.

“The BMW Group is in the biggest digital transformation I’ve ever experienced and it is a great adventure to be part of it. There is such an urgent need for Data Scientists! We are constantly looking for great talents who can support us in digitalizing existing processes, creating and delivering new opportunities and asking new questions that have not been raised before.” is the opinion of Dr. Stefan Meinzer, Domain-Owner & General Manager Sales Analytics at the BMW Group.

But it’s not just about finding new employees for data topics, it’s also about getting all employees excited about data driven work.
