Big data and data science jobs are positions that need people with skills in database analysis and predictive analytics. Typically working with unstructured data, big data and data science professionals will develop or use systems that go beyond traditional SQL based information systems. They may be working with data of a sufficient variety, velocity or veracity (the 3 Vs of big data) that means that a traditional relational database is not up to the task of storing and analysing the data. Data sets may include social media, such as Twitter and Facebook posts, photos or videos from Instagram, or even sensor data from roads, train tracks and aircrafts. Companies looking to gain value from their varied data may have a big data initiative and need to employ a data scientist to understand how value can be applied and build an algorithm that can maximise value from this data. Data scientist jobs help make decisions using artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to automate processes and decision making.
