Europe is seeing a hiring boom in railway industry machine learning roles

We have analysed hiring levels in railway industry machine learning roles using data from GlobalData.

Europe was the fastest growing region for machine learning hiring among railway industry companies in the three months ending December.

The number of roles in Europe made up 13.9 per cent of total machine learning jobs – up from 11.3 per cent in the same quarter in 2020.

That was followed by North America, which saw a 2.4 year-on-year percentage point change in machine learning roles.

The figures are compiled by GlobalData, who track the number of new job postings from key companies in various sectors over time. Using textual analysis, these job advertisements are then classified thematically.

GlobalData's thematic approach to sector activity seeks to group key company information by topic to see which companies are best placed to weather the disruptions coming to their industries.

These key themes, which include machine learning, are chosen to cover "any issue that keeps a CEO awake at night".

By tracking them across job advertisements it allows us to see which companies are leading the way on specific issues and which are dragging their heels - and importantly where the market is expanding and contracting.

Which countries are seeing the most growth for machine learning job ads in the railway industry?

The fastest growing country was the United States, which saw 58.3 per cent of all machine learning job adverts in the three months ending December 2020, increasing to 66.8 per cent in the three months ending December last year.

That was followed by Hungary (up 6.1 percentage points), the United Kingdom (up 2.2), and Germany (up 0.5).

The top country for machine learning roles in the railway industry is the United States which saw 66.8 per cent of all roles advertised in the three months ending December.

Which cities are the biggest hubs for machine learning workers in the railway industry?

Some 9.4 per cent of all railway industry machine learning roles were advertised in Chicago (United States) in the three months ending December - more than any other city.

That was followed by Bengaluru (India) with 9.4 per cent, Atlanta (United States) with 5.8 per cent, and San Francisco (United States) with 5.5 per cent.
