If you are looking for an exciting career with great pay and job security, a data science job is an excellent choice. Talented data scientists are so scarce that some executives have taken to calling them “unicorns.” Indeed, the hard-to-find combination of skills these individuals possess—in computer science, math and statistics, business strategy, and communications—puts them in an enviable position as highly sought-after and well-paid professionals with a great deal of job security.

Below are links to several employment sites where you can find data science jobs. Additional job titles to search for include “data analyst”, “data architect”, “data mining engineer”, “machine learning engineer”, “Hadoop engineer”, “predictive modeler”, “business intelligence manager”, “data visualization specialist”, “financial analyst”, and “chief information officer”.
