Introducing the Data Analyst Salary Guide; Day in a life with Tisha @ Tesla; Data Analyst job market insights for May 2023

Article Updated: 

Hi everyone, happy Monday has been live for 5 months, and we've brought over 1,200 hand curated data analyst jobs onto the site - all of them including a salary range.

I wanted to thank all of you who helped and upvoted our submission on Product Hunt, it's really appreciated!

I've also had multiple people reaching out, both in comment section of my previous updates on Reddit, but also in DMs on Twitter, sharing they have found the site to be extremely useful in their job search, and that they were able to get interviews and onboard to new roles through the site - I absolutely love this, and even if this project doesn't end up being commercially successful, I'm super happy to hear that it has indeed helped people when needed.

Before we jump in, there's feedback regarding some of the jobs on the site already expiring and leading to non-existing listings. I am trying to come up with a solution where visitors would be able to upvote/downvote and thus highlighting status for everyone else. For now, I went through job listings and marked those roles no longer open as "Expired".

Now, there are 3 things I'd like to share with you today.

  1. The Data Analyst Salary Guide
  2. Day in the Life of a Data Analyst - interview with Tisha @ Tesla
  3. Data Analyst job market insights for May 2023

Hope you enjoy the read, and as always - please do share your ideas, thoughts and/or if you run across more bugs on the site.

Thank you,


1. The Data Analyst Salary Guide

I'm excited to share that the first five months of insights were consolidated, and the Data Analyst Salary Guide has now been published.

The data analyst salary guide provides the overview of salaries in various industries - and now also shows a more detailed view on each industry page, with a deep dive into how much entry level, senior and lead data analysts can earn depending on their experience.

This is only based on job opportunities on the site, and no external data sources are utilised.

The plan is to have it updated quarterly, with the next update in September.

2. Day in the Life of a Data Analyst

We've also recently published another "Day in the Life of a Data Analyst" interview.

In these interviews, we aim to share stories and experiences about the route to becoming a data analyst, keeping up with the skillset, recommendations to aspiring data analysts and much more.

Tisha, who is a data analyst at Tesla, has shared some fantastic insights, and I'd love to highlight couple of my favourite quotes from the interview.

On what she loves about being a data analyst:

"For me, the most exciting aspect of being a data analyst is the opportunity to unlock meaningful insights from vast amounts of data. I enjoy the challenge of uncovering patterns, identifying trends, and translating complex data into actionable recommendations. The ability to make a tangible impact on business outcomes and help organizations drive growth is incredibly rewarding."

On her advice for those aspiring to enter the industry, she shares 6 points that everyone should focus on:

a. Acquire a strong foundation in SQL. This is an essential tool for data analysis and manipulation.

b. Familiarize yourself with data analytics tools like Tableau, Power BI, or Alteryx. Demonstrating proficiency in these tools can enhance your employability.

c. Seek out internships, projects, or volunteer opportunities where you can gain hands-on experience with real-world datasets and analytical challenges.

d. Continuously enhance your skills by staying updated with the latest trends and best practices in the field. Online courses, webinars, and industry conferences can be valuable resources.

e. Showcase your skills and projects through a portfolio or personal website. This allows potential employers to see your capabilities and the impact you can make.

f. Network with professionals in the data industry through events, online communities, and LinkedIn. Building connections can lead to valuable opportunities and mentorship.

We've also touched upon the Question of the Year: Is AI/Chat GPT a threat to data analysts?

There's so much more, just read the rest of the interview.
