Landing.Jobs Data Challenge   

Every year launches the Tech Careers Report, an immersive report  on the portuguese community of tech professionals that analyses salaries, motivations and other dimensions in the tech market in Portugal. 

This year, besides the Tech Careers Report 2021 sponsored by tb.lx we want to improve the quality of the insights on this data by challenging everyone in the Portuguese Data Science Community to create the best analysis and insights they can based on this survey’s raw data collected and made available (obviously anonymized). 

We strongly believe this community effort will improve the overall knowledge produced by this report, helping everyone have more and better information to support better decisions about their careers.

The submitted analysis will be evaluated by both the community and a selected jury, and the top 3 analysis will earn prizes.

So, if you’re a Data geek grab this challenge, show everyone you’re a data master, help the community and earn your prize! 

You can use statistical analysis, visualization techniques, machine learning / AI / data mining techniques or just plain old excel and some pivot tables, whatever analytical tools you master.

  The opportunity:

  • Help the tech community - Your work will help many tech professionals make data driven decisions regarding their professional careers.

  • Sharpen your skills - We give you data from a survey carried out with 4000 tech professionals (with due privacy). Take it and test hypotheses to generate knowledge. Take the opportunity to explore your skills while adding value to the community.

  • Extend your network: The winners of this challenge will be presented at an online event with our partners, clients and tech talent. We believe that it’s the right opportunity to launch yourself into the market and, who knows, stumble upon new opportunities.

  • Prizes: the submitted analysis will be evaluated by the community and a selected jury, and the top analysis will earn Amazon Vouchers (1st - 1.000€, 2nd - 500€, 3rd - 250€)
