IT Jobs Payment Data Statistics
The skills the author demoed here can be learned through taking Data Science with Machine Learning bootcamp with NYC Data Science Academy.
How much is an IT job making in the data market? What is the overall current market demand for such position and relevant skillset? Which states have the highest needs for the job?
Those questions are often asked by IT Recruitment Agencies and HR Heads who are looking for IT resources. In addition, an IT professional would also want to see the Job Payment Report for their Job Title which would help them determine their worth on the market value, and so they will have a plan to keep up with the market demands.
Data scraped from IT recruitment websites was analyzed and a Shiny app was created to answer the questions above. I will continue collecting more data and improve the accuracy in the near future.

Application Data Overview
- From the left panel, enter a brief job title. If you're uncertain about a full title, you can start with first keyword, e.g. "developer", "java", "manager", etc., and the app will show a Word Cloud suggesting other supporting words to be combined around the keyword so that you can have a more accurate Job Title that you'd like to have an analysis for.
- The radio buttons let you select the Payment Unit of your interest, including "Annual", "Per Hour", "Per Daily", "Per Week" where the actual data is available. Otherwise, they are converted to "Annual Equivalent" rate.
