North America’s Big Data Talent Gap is estimated to reach between 154,000 and 209,000 professionals by 2018. Because Big Data and Analytics professionals are already in short supply, the high availability of opportunity means that talent is not easily reached by traditional recruiting methods.
Acamar is a staffing agency specializing in emerging Information Management (IM) competencies. We are data experts first and a staffing company second. We recruit, train, retain, and deliver the talent necessary to lead organizations to next generation insight.
Big data people.
The same roles often mean different things to different organizations. In the absence of professional definitions and career pathways, organizations are struggling to clearly express their talent needs and prospective talent are finding it difficult to assess their suitability, interest, and candidacy in the field of Big Data and Analytics.
Good ones are as rare as unicorns. They organize and analyze (big) data to predict and optimize. Typically hold an advanced math or computer science degree.
Data detectives. They collect, process and perform statistical data analyses. May be an entry-level role or one requiring a tenured subject matter expert.
Contemporary data modelers. They create blueprints for data management systems to integrate, centralize, protect and maintain architectures.
Software engineers by trade. They develop, construct, test and maintain architectures. They also manage the ingestion, transformation, and storage of big data.
