How we identified the jobs that use python the most

One of the easiest ways to advance in your career is to develop the skills that are most in demand by future employers.

Lucky for us, we have a database of over 7 million real-world resumes to identify which jobs require which skills. So, we looked through each resume to identify which job titles had ‘python’ listed as a skill the most.

We did our best to find fuzzy matches, meaning something like ‘PYTHON’ or ‘pytHON’ would match our search. We then divided the number of matches by the total number of resumes to see which job titles had the highest percentage of matches.
