You will find that most people working in data are referred to as a Data Scientist, mainly because it is such a broad remit. We’ve even seen terms such as “Citizen Data Scientist” become popularised which simply means people who aren’t trained or qualified in the field but have taught themselves many of the applications. |
A true Data Scientist is someone who can master several skills right through from working with raw data, using statistical techniques via data programming tools like Python or R and is able to present all those insights in a simple way to a wider business. The main functions tend to be machine learning, Big Data technology, predictive statistics, recommender systems and distributed computing (computers on numerous networks or disparate data). Big companies like Google and Facebook are famed for hiring many Data Scientists for their mass of complex algorithms that feed their businesses.
As an added note: We are currently building an online careers portal - datasciencejobs for those who are aspiring to work within big data or who already work within the field and are looking for careers specifically within the areas of data science, machine learning, deep learning, data analytics, big data and statistics.
