The Data and BI space continue to grow in the number of roles available and the diversity of roles within this space; with a shortage of local candidates to meet growing demands being the common theme. The Maltese marketplace tends to place a high emphasis on the Microsoft Stack for BI roles, MS SQL for DBA roles and Cloud + Real-time processing experience when it comes to Data Engineering roles.
The key demand and shortage of supply in the market are for both Data Engineers who can work with real-time data and experienced data DevOps Engineers. On the other end of the spectrum, there is strong demand for candidates to work within the data science and ML field, however, the supply of roles is not there. Naturally, the demand is strongest within the iGaming sector when it comes to Data Engineers, however, telecoms and fintech organisations are always looking for strong BI professionals.
