Definitions and methodology

Source of data 

  • The analysis is based on publicly available data from LinkedIn.


  • For every skill, STL Partners has created a list of job title key words that identify the job holder as a person working within the skill area. These key words cover job holders at all levels of seniority.  
  • The list takes into consideration the fact that different companies may have different job taxonomies. 


  • For every company, we have covered all significant known subsidiaries.
