With the world starting to open amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, the number of jobs available in data science sees an upward trend in India as we inch closer to providing vaccines for everyone.

The number of vacancies for data science jobs on the top job portals in India increased by 53% from when India eased the lockdown restrictions on June 8 to Nov 30, according to the data collated by AIMResearch. Although it is difficult to ascertain the exact number of open jobs, the top job portals in India, Naukri, LinkedIn, and MonsterIndia together showed almost 125,000 vacancies on Nov 30.

However, the pandemic did result in a decrease in the number of open data science jobs at the start as vacancies reduced from 101,562 from Dec 17 last year to 81,704 on June 8. Despite this decrease, India’s share of open data science jobs in the world increased from 7.2% in January to 9.8% in August.
