Data Scientist is the hot new job for 2012. Does this job really exist? Who hires these people? Are companies currently hiring? The answers are: yes, lots of companies, and yes. I decided to spend last night looking for companies that are currently hiring data scientists. It did not take long to compile a pretty good list.

Very interesting Ryan.
I will shortly be publishing, on a fortnightly basis, stats on the number of Hadoop jobs (contract or permanent) in the UK, number of applications, number of registered candidates etc. This information will be via Jobserve – see http://www.jobserve.co.uk – a leading job portal in the UK.
