Survey Summary

Toward the end of 2018, BrainStation asked professionals around the world for their thoughts on the current digital landscape, and thousands of people responded, sharing their day-to-day experiences, preferred tools, and more.

The Digital Skills Survey covered six professional disciplines and functions, which were then broken down further into four areas:

Work experience
Skills and tools
Professional development
Future trends

Here are a few high-level takeaways from this year's results:


of Data Professionals didn't start their career in data


of Designers primarily design for the web


of Developers use JavaScript
