Want a job in analytics? These companies are hiring

11 Jun 2018

In a world in which data is easier to gather than ever, people who can successfully derive workable insights from reams of information are like gold dust, and these companies are all mining for some real gems.

Advances in technology mean that it is easier than ever to gather vast amounts of data, something which any business worth their salt is, at this stage, incorporating heavily into their growth strategy.

Commentators frequently point out that data is the new oil, and for many reasons it’s a hugely apt metaphor. You can definitely strike it rich if you have the right data, sure, but both data and oil are pretty useless to you if you don’t have the right tools to refine them and extract their real value.

For oil, you need heavy machinery. For data, you need analysts.

To that end, these companies below are all seeking applicants for roles in analytics. If you think you can help make their data dreams come true, keep reading.
