At the DATA festival #online 2022, various companies such as DHL Group, BWM Group and Temedia, spoke about the topic of tech jobs and presented their current challenges and measures in this regard.
Karolina Stosio is Lead Data Scientist at Temedica and she co-leads the Munich chapter of DATA festival’s special partner “Women in Big Data”. In her presentation, she showed how wide the current range of open positions in data is. In addition to vacancies in data analysis & AI, data storage & processes there is also a need for data acquisition and data production & sales.
