North America is seeing a hiring boom in medical industry big data roles

Some parts of the world are investing more heavily in big data roles than others.

By Data Journalism Team

North America extended its dominance for big data hiring among medical industry companies in the three months ending January.

The number of roles in North America made up 73% of total big data jobs – up from 72.6% in the same quarter last year.

That was followed by Europe, which saw a 0.3 year-on-year percentage point change in big data roles.

The figures are compiled by GlobalData, who track the number of new job postings from key companies in various sectors over time. Using textual analysis, these job advertisements are then classified thematically.

GlobalData's thematic approach to sector activity seeks to group key company information by topic to see which companies are best placed to weather the disruptions coming to their industries.

These key themes, which include big data, are chosen to cover "any issue that keeps a CEO awake at night".

By tracking them across job advertisements it allows us to see which companies are leading the way on specific issues and which are dragging their heels - and importantly where the market is expanding and contracting.

Which countries are seeing the most growth for big data job ads in the medical industry?

The fastest growing country was Canada, which saw 1.5% of all big data job adverts in the three months ending January 2021, increasing to 2.2% in the three months ending January this year.

That was followed by Switzerland (up 0.4 percentage points), Poland (0.3), and Mexico (0.3).

The top country for big data roles in the medical industry is the United States which saw 69.8% of all roles advertised in the three months ending January.

Which cities are the biggest hubs for big data workers in the medical industry?

Some 3.3% of all medical industry big data roles were advertised in San Diego (United States) in the three months ending January.

That was followed by Valencia (United States) with 3.3%, Miami (United States) with 1.7%, and Advance (United States) with 1.5%.
