According to a LinkedIn survey, data scientists are amongst the most sought-after talents in Singapore with demand surging 17 times from 2013 to 2017.

Seeing this, we decided to focus on data science when we held our inaugural Industry Insights event at our brand new office in The Cathay.

Moderated by Rachel Lee, our Head of Community, the panel  —consisting of Lionel Won (Senior Tech Recruiter at Indeed) and Will Ho (Machine Learning Engineer at Tech In Asia) — discussed how aspiring data scientists can prepare themselves for junior data science jobs and the types of technical skills required for a data science career.

Besides talking about career requirements, the panel also discussed industry outlook and revealed the current hiring practices for data scientists.
