Salaries for Hadoop professionals

Here I provide data about salaries, as well as number of open positions, based on Indeed.com sources (look at the left column when clicking on the Indeed.com link). Numbers in parenthesis represent the total number of open positions. I compare Hadoop with other IT skills including big data, Python, Java, SQL and so on, in different locales. For search results, an exact match is put in quotes (e.g. "data science") while a broad match is not put in quotes. The discrepancy between "data science" and data science is huge, because data scientists can have hundreds of different job titles. The difference between "big data" and big data is 15 times smaller. San Francisco is the hub for big data, Hadoop, data science etc. But location #2 could be London, UK, with more jobs than New York, and better salaries.

Anyone interested to put all this data (and more that you can gather from Indeed.com) in a nice chart?

  • Below is an update for San Francisco, in October 2015. The salary increase was substantial, like 30%, over the last two years. But there are fewer jobs, though it could be seasonal, or the fact that some of these jobs don't show up on Indeed.com anymore (e.g. they are not advertised).
