Search engines (Google, Microsoft), social networks (Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn), financial institutions, Amazon, Apple, eBay, the health care industry, engineering companies (Boeing, Intel, Oil industry), retail analytics, mobile analytics, marketing agencies, data science vendors (for instance, Pivotal, Teradata, Tableau, SAS, Alpine Labs), environment, utilities government and defense routinely hire data scientists, though the job title is sometimes different. Traditional companies (manufacturing) tend to call them operations research analysts.

Most jobs (at least, the senior roles) are still concentrated in US (New York and Bay Area), but some places are catching up fast: Singapore, Spain, Ireland, and London. Below is a list of companies with the largest numbers of data scientists, based on Data Science Central internal data.

The list below is based on the author’s 10,000+ LinkedIn connections, broken down per company, and ordered by number of connections. Note that there are many ties outside the top 15. Only companies with at least 5 connections are listed here.The top 20 companies represent about 10% of all data scientists, but the distribution has a very long, unusually heavy tail.
