LinkedIn has assembled a list of 10 jobs that have risen from obscurity to prominence over the last five years. Unsurprisingly, eight of the those roles are tech-related.

LinkedIn compiled the list by analysing the frequency of phrases in 259 million member profiles, and comparing those with its (undoubtedly much smaller) archive of profiles in 2008. In many cases, the specialisation is what makes the difference: developer is hardly a new role, but iOS and Android developer are:
- iOS Developer
- Android Developer
- Zumba Instructor
- Social Media Intern
- Data Scientist
- UI/UX Designer
- Big Data Architect
- Beachbody Coach
- Cloud Services Specialist
- Digital Marketing Specialist
Strangely, the two non-tech roles are both in fitness (though I still struggle to consider "beachbody instructor" a real career).
