A whole new job market: Introducing AI professions

Alongside the fear of AI taking away jobs, new opportunities are also arising - innovative professions and roles that adopt artificial intelligence tools in fields such as marketing, cyber, health and even in manufacturing plants. These are the roles that are being born right now

The giant technological leap made by artificial intelligence tools in the last two years has led to widespread fears and warnings about the potential loss of millions of jobs. A report prepared for the U.S. government warned that about 10% of U.S. workers could lose their jobs due to the introduction of AI tools.
However, alongside these fears, new opportunities are also emerging—innovative professions and roles that adopt AI tools in fields such as marketing, cybersecurity, health, and even manufacturing.
Organizations in Israel and around the world are already working to integrate advanced technologies into their products, work processes, and various activities. Companies are mobilizing personnel and preparing for the new era of artificial intelligence, where expert employees will be responsible for assimilating the technology into products, protecting against attacks, automating processes, and integrating creative AI tools into organizational procedures.

"The only stable thing in the job market, especially the technological one, is that it changes all the time. Anyone who doesn't ask themselves how the AI ​​revolution affects their job and fields of activity, adopt new tools, and take part in reinventing their field of activity will find themselves without a job," says Avi Shanir, CEO of Elevation, which specializes in building internal and external skills academies to bridge employment gaps and promote occupational diversity.
Over time, streamlining will continue, and jobs in entire areas will be dramatically reduced. As technology advances, some jobs will be fully performed by AI. Instead of fearing the revolution and wondering what will happen, Shanir recommends that everyone take small steps to start experimenting with different tools and strengthen the super skills we have, which AI will have a hard time reaching—creativity, critical thinking, curiosity, and thinking outside the box.
Emerging professions in AI
Avatar Data Engineer
At D-ID, which develops avatars and interactive AI agents, a new position has been created due to the rise of animated avatars.

Automatic Solutions Operations & CS Manager
At Verbit, a new role has been created to manage the lifecycle of all the company's AI-based products. The artificial intelligence itself and the way we interact with it are changing, making the role very dynamic. Responsibilities include planning operational processes, collaborating with development, and managing customer relationships to drive product adoption.
"Since this is a new field in the making, there is no fixed agenda and I enjoy it. When launching products, I focus on quality control and operational usability of the product, working closely with development teams, product, speech engineering, and customer success teams. Other days include building work processes, internal study of the organization on processes and workflow, writing proposals and best practices, analyzing product usage trends, and making product changes. I also spend time meeting with customer managers and customers to understand their needs, evaluate the suitability of the products to the market, and serve our customers in the best possible way," says Vita Greenstone, who fills the role at the company.
Job requirements: Ability to create and manage smooth cooperation between departments, optimize the process of delivering the product to the market, and achieve customer satisfaction. Capabilities in technical project management, communication skills, and strong organizational skills are necessary. To excel in the position, one must have the ability to adapt, act analytically, and solve problems creatively.
Training: You can enter the position without a practical background in development or a technical profession, but you need to navigate the technical world to communicate effectively with all functions and manage them. "I believe that the main requirements for the position are a desire to do practical work, curiosity to understand how things work deeply. You have to feel comfortable dealing with multiple pieces of information and synthesizing them into refined insights at the highest level. My master's degree in legal linguistics, combined with experience in operations and data science in an ASR environment, prepares me for the role at Verbit," says Greenstone.
Salary: The salary range is between NIS 19,000-26,000 ($5000-$7000) per month, varying depending on seniority, professional background, education, and how much artificial intelligence is a central component in the workplace.
Generative AI Lead
At the digital health company Hello Heart, the Generative AI Lead role involves leading technological projects that enhance efficiency and innovation throughout the organization. This role requires close contact with department leaders to map their needs, understand existing tools, and develop new tools to optimize work using AI. Each project is measured by its contribution to efficiency, whether it is saving money or manpower.
"In the day-to-day life of the person who leads the position with us, they do a variety of things, for example: implementation of a research environment of LLM models, training for the engineering staff on the correct use of GitHub Copilot, involvement in Gen AI-based projects in the product and research, and leading an optimization project for the support department," says Amir Dolev, VP Data & AI at the company.
Requirements: "We found that the most suitable profile for this role is a product person with a strong technical background, someone with experience as a developer or analyst, but also experience as a manager and process leader. The person we recently hired for the position came from the product world, with experience in leading technological organizations, and a strong passion for the GenAI world.
