Any project where there is a need to analyze the data scientifically will typically have real scientists on staff on contract. I've worked on projects side by side with statisticians and where the end users were epidemiologists, nutritionists, etc. However, I wouldn't consider myself a "data scientist" or even a "computer scientist". Most developers, even BI developers don't really look at the data using scientific standards; we're just the IT equivalent of a lab technician; we look where we're told to look, and our goal is to create a process that produces whatever outcome is documented in the requirements.
"Data analyst" or "data engineer" perhaps.
