Re: Big data titles
The enterprise is looking for someone with necessary expertise and experience instead of the one with just "Hadoop" labelled on the forehead. So it's common that there is no this kind of keyword in the job title. If you really own the skill, then phrase it in a more proper way as was mentioned in this post.

Apache Hadoop, yes, but before that, Yahoo Hadoop
Yes, Apache Hadoop is scorching hot, but before it became so, it was incubated in the brains of David Cutting and Michael Cafarella at Yahoo and nurtured as a project there. Yahoo has made a great contribution to open source, unlike some of its big Web company brethern. Cutting is now chief architect at Cloudera.

Big data titles
The point about Hadoop perhaps not even being in the job title rings true with what I have heard from hiring managers as well.
