Two of the important insights that could be taken from Indeed's best jobs in U.S 2019 are:

  • Computer Vision Engineer, which is also a demanding career in the present time stood at number 13 with an average base salary of $158303 and the % growth of 116% between 2015 and 2018. The ranking of Computer Vision Engineer could be accounted for the immense use of technology in the current scenario. The use of Computer Vision technology in the making of self-driving cars, smart surveillance system, a Navigation system, Inspection system, etc., has accounted for its rise in ranking.

  • The shocking part of the report was the ranking of Data Scientist which stood at number 22 in the report. The number of job-postings between 2015 and 2018 only took a growth of 78% and the Average base salary comes out to be $131389. The ranking of Data Scientist at this position could be accounted for automation. Due to automation many of the work which was previously done by Data Scientists is done with the help of automation now. It cannot be inferred from here that automation is taking the job of Data Scientists but yes some of the works like Data Sourcing and Cleansing of Data Scientists are done with the help of automation today. Due to this small and medium companies are shifting more towards automation than recruiting Data Scientists for the same work.
