Data science roles and responsibilities are diverse, and the skills required for them vary considerably. In these infographics below, we have described the different data science roles along with the skill set, technical knowledge, and mindset needed to take up the challenge.

The Data Scientist

A data scientist is probably one of the hottest job titles that you can put on your business card, and the closer you get to Silicon Valley, the more valuable this role becomes. A data scientist is as rare as a unicorn and gets to work every day with the mindset of a curious data wizard.

The Data Analyst

The data analyst is the Sherlock Holmes of the data science team. Languages like R, Python, SQL, and C are elementary to him/her.

The Salary

To end, we had a quick look at the average salaries displayed for each role. Note that these salaries can profoundly differ based on location, industry, etc. In general, it looks like a job as a data and analytics manager or a data scientist will give you the highest paycheck.
