Data scientists in Singapore earn  more than those in Indonesia and Vietnam, according to data from the “Southeast Asia Startup Talent Trends Report 2024” report of Glints and Monk’s Hill Ventures (MHV).

The base salary range for senior data scientists in Singapore is US$6,600-US$8,400 monthly. Those in the junior and mid-level, meanwhile, have a base monthly salary ranging from US$3,600-US$4,900 and US$4,600-US$5,900, respectively.

In SEA, Glints and MHV said demand for skilled data scientists will continue to grow due to the “rapid growth of the digital economy, the increasing adoption of data-driven decision-making, and the emergence of new technologies like AI and machine learning.”

“In Singapore, we also expect demand to remain stable with government initiatives like Smart Nation,” the report said.
