Asia-Pacific is seeing a hiring boom in IoT roles in the automotive industry

Asia-Pacific extended its dominance in Internet of Things (IoT) hiring among automotive companies in the three months ended May.

The number of roles in Asia-Pacific accounted for 36.9% of total IoT jobs – up from 24.1% in the same quarter last year.

This was followed by North America, which saw -1.1 annual percentage points in IoT roles.

The figures are compiled by GlobalData, which tracks the number of new jobs created by major companies in various sectors over time. Using textual analysis, these job postings are then classified thematically.

GlobalData’s thematic approach to sector activity seeks to group key company information by theme to see which companies are best positioned to face future disruptions in their industry.

These key topics, which include the Internet of Things, have been chosen to “cover any issue that keeps a CEO awake at night.”

By tracking them in job ads, it allows us to see which companies are leading in specific areas and which are lagging – and more importantly, where the market is expanding and contracting.
