  • Companies are actively hiring workers with generative AI skills.

  • Meta, Amazon, and Capital One are among the employers with the most job listings referencing genAI.

  • Jobs involving artificial intelligence often come with six-figure salaries.

Generative AI has contributed to a surge of job openings in what was otherwise a pretty dismal year for tech.

There have been 10,113 job postings related to generative AI this year, according to a recent study from research firm Lightcast that analyzed postings across job boards like Indeed and company websites.

Postings came from a broad range of industries, including tech companies developing their own AI and education platforms wanting to experiment with the technology, Layla O'Kane, senior economist at Lightcast, told Insider over email.

Data scientists, machine learning engineers, and curriculum writers were among the top job titles for postings that referenced generative AI.

"We were surprised to see the proliferation of generative AI skills being required in jobs that are not developing these technologies," Kane said. "This indicates that workers and employers are already adjusting their work needs and ways of working to incorporate these new generative AI tools."
