There was further evidence of the high demand for artificial intelligence and data science professionals this week, as job site Indeed.com released its list of the 30 fastest growing jobs in technology. Three of the top 10 spots went to AI and data-related positions, with the job of machine learning engineer now coming in at a strong second place finish.
Confirming the demand for technology jobs in general, tech jobs are the third-largest category in “hard to fill” roles on Indeed’s platform, behind sales and management. (Indeed defines “hard to fill” roles as those that are vacant for over 60 days.) Indeed based its top tech jobs list on hundreds of thousands of job searches and vacancy listings conducted on its website over the past 12 months.
