insideBIGDATA recently was contacted by our friends over at icrunchdata, a leading job search site for big data, analytics, and technology jobs. Todd Nevins, Co-Founder and Director of Marketing & Media Relations, pointed out that they just passed 500,000 Big Data jobs posted online via the Index powered by icrunchdata. The milestone level was officially hit last Wednesday and it’s the first time this mark has been reached. Today it is pegged at 509,066.
In the Big Data Jobs Index shown below, you can find the latest industry job statistics and future job trends for popular categories in the United States.

Big Data refers to the immense amount of data collected and analyzed from every imaginable device in our modern culture, and has fueled one of the most hyper-growth niches of employment in a century. Some sources predict that by 2015, Big Data will create 4.4 million technology jobs globally, of which 1.9 million will be in the United States. Needless to say, there is a shortage of skilled talent in the industry to support this demand, which creates incredible career opportunities for the highly skilled insideBIGDATA community.
