What are high demand skills for Big Data Engineers with Salary 120k+ in Melbourne?

There is a frequent asked question about what are high demand skills for Big Data Engineers in Melbourne. I decide to dig into with some job boards data. Here is my find.

Big Data:

  • Hadoop
  • Hive
  • PIG

And it will make you preferable if you have some of following skills:

  • Flume
  • Sqoop
  • Greenplum
  • hBase

About programming side, it is heavily towards Java and Scala. But it will be very nice to know about R and Python;

Problem solving is ranking top 1 skill required for big data jobs. I guess that is because purpose of data is to understand problems and solve problems.

Dont forget about storytelling in a big data age

We live in a world awash with information, but we seem to face a growing scarcity of wisdom. And what’s worse, we confuse the two. We believe that having access to more information produces more knowledge, which results in more wisdom. But, if anything, the opposite is true — more and more information without the proper context and interpretation only muddles our understanding of the world rather than enriching it.

Watch the video here why we need storytelling.

3 Top Learning about Women in IT


Gender Gap in IT

I started product discovery journey for KareerTracker from June last year. There were lots interests from busy parents who have ambitions to grow their careers while having more time with family. We believed that there were more demanding from women because they have more difficulties in managing time and keeping focus from interviews. But the January usage stats told us a different story and the ratio between mums and dads was 2:8 and dads are much more active than mums too.

To search for cause of the problem, I attended an excellent session, “Women in Agile”, by @StephBySouth which attendees talked about gender gap in Agile community at Melbourne.

There are 3 great learning from the meetup:

The culture is root cause of the difference in ratio

A girl just graduated went into a high performance agile team. The team members have great relationships, they drinked together, they even have retrospective in someone’s house. They have great geek culture. The girl found it was difficulty fitting in and left the company after just two months.

90% of problem raised in meetup is related to culture. In Keira Snyder’s research, 65% of women leaving IT industry and not looking come back to IT becauses of maternity leave and social responsibilities such as taking care of kids.

The #likeagirl campaign has highlight how deep the problem is. If you haven’t watch the video, watch the video below:

Lots of women are leaving IT, and it is a leaking pipe

There are lots of women leaving IT because of social responsibilities like taking care of kids. From discussion, the flexibility of working hours becomes one of the biggest impediments for women. And in the same time, most women worked in highly collaborative roles like Iteration Manager, Product Manager and other roles which requires highly effective collaborative skills. It is very difficult for them to have different working times because of nature of jobs. There is no clear solution for the problem.

We need to solve this problem. Otherwise, we will have leaking pipe and there will be never enough women in IT.

We need to respect difference between women and men including social responsibilities

Women and men are genetically different and they were brought up differently. To increase number of women working in Agile and IT, we need to respect differences.

There are lots of women working as testers, iteration managers, UX/UI, and product managers. But we see trends that there are actions to try to increase ratio of women in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) . But is that what we should do? There are many skills that we need for IT industry. Support, respect and think benefits of one’s skills to team is a starting point.

Article from Rachel Sklar, “Stop Equating Women in Tech with Engineers”, is a very nice reading about Stop Equating Women in Tech with Engineers.

How to setup Annual Goals

chinese_symbol_for_chaos_bagIt is time to setup new annual goals. I have started to setup annual goal since 6 years ago. I had difficulties in reach goals and feel depressed around December every year because I haven’t been able to finish them. It was in chaos mode for December, preparing for holiday, summarize what has happened and plan out other bold annual goals.

Last year, I have found the “S.M.A.R.T” rule for setting up goal. It has helped me a lot in achieving goals. And I did some changes in how I discover my goals too. I want to share my learning and feedback are welcomed.

Find mission and goals

I often found my list full of career development achievement.  Several of my friend did the same thing. Except the ambitious part, another biggest roadblock with list was unbalanced list. My goals didn’t include other parts of my life like personal health, family and community, my life was unbalanced for sure. I was workaholics. I were not happy and didn’t achieve what I want, and there were no big improvement in job satisfaction too. I started realized that I am in unbalanced life around December 2014.

I started listening to Stephen Covey’s “7 Habits for Highly Effective People”. The ideas in the book resonated with me. The biggest taken for me in the book, we need to goals fall into each category including:

  • Health
  • Job
  • Family
  • Community

We need to include most of them in our annual goals. I highly recommend  the mission build tool from them;

Other things that I found helpful are:

  • Don’t try to setup your goals at first week of year. Take your time thinking about and prioritize them
  • Communicate your goals to your family
  • Have agreed family and community goals with your family member
  • Communicate your goals to your close friends and get feedback

Now I am running a part time business help people’s career development. And I am able to drop business related stuff in hand and spend time with my child any time. And I am much healthier than before.

S.M.A.R.T. Goals

smart goal setting conceptSMART rule brings structure and track-ability to your goals. The clear and quantifiable SMART goal will make people focus and easily setup milestones for your 12 months ahead.

With SMART rule, you can evaluate your objectives.


You need to very specific about your goals. For example, I had set up goal in 2004 like ‘bring Agile into workplace’. I didn’t do much at the time because the goal was NOT specific enough. With “Specific” in mind, I would like setup as following: ‘setup Automatic function and unit testing in workplace for core components and increase test coverage to 60%’

Questions you may ask yourself when setting your goals and objectives are:

  • What exactly do I want to achieve?
  • Where?
  • How?
  • When?
  • With whom?
  • What are the conditions and limitations?
  • Why exactly do I want to reach this goal? What are possible alternative ways of achieving the same?


Measurable is the most important part of a goal. Without it, you will achieve nothing and won’t feel satisfied even when you hit something big. And it helps you thinking more detail about your goal. I want to be happier. But happier can’t be one of your new year resolution. It is not measurable and not evidence.

Using health as example, I were thinking that I must live in a healthier lifestyle. It will be very hard to achieve it if you don’t measurable goal.

My last years’ health goals:

1. Lose weight to 70kg at end of Jan 2015

2. Have Vitamin D checking to 30 Jan 2015

3. Other general health checking should be kept same as before or better (I have last year result)

4. Minimum 4 hours exercise each week

You will notice, all of them are measurable and I have setup expire date too. And I have been using Runkeeper to track my goals and using medical check every six months to check how far away from the goals 2&3.


I made some very bold goals between 2010 and 2012. I did make one of two of them. But I do feel depressed every December when new year was coming.

I feel happier and more achievement to setup reasonable goals while considering my commitment to family, community and health.

Don’t think that you gona have 80% commitment to your career goals. And you are a new mum. Please setup as less goals as possible. Just enjoy time with your kids.  Knowing your focus and what are other commitments will help you reasonable goals.

If you setup goals related to workplace, you need to understand cost, your supporters, business benefits and more.


You goals should be relevant to missions that you and your family setup. The more relevant and more you are passion about, the more chance that you gona work harder and get it done.


Annual goal is time-bound, 12 months. I personally found that starting a goal from February is much easier and achievable than starting from January.

In the same time, setting up milestones for your annual goals will increase your awareness towards goal and make yourself learning more from the journey.

My 5 cents: Track, Review and Adjust

Setting up milestones for your goals and review them are very important. There are several tools existing tracking progress toward goals. Please see last part the article, you will find mobile apps that I have been using.

With that, we can learn

  • What are biggest road blocks
  • What are working great
  • Whether we need to adjust goals
  • Celebrate success


Tools Keep Track of Your Goals

After setting up your goal, keep tracking your actions towards goals and make adjustment are important to your life. The following are the ones that I am using:

Health and Exercise Tracking Tool, Runkeeper (For most mobile device)

Career Development Tracking Tool, KareerTracker (developed by us, Android only)
