Every year, the Gartner Research Board (GRB) invites a small group of highly talented people to join the firm as research analysts (RAs). RAs form the core of the GRB's research teams, distilling findings from a variety of sources and presenting them in a way that is consumable for senior technology executives. Being an RA at the GRB is not a backend position: you will be directly engaging with executives at global Fortune 500 (in many cases F50, or F10) companies as well as other highly influential thinkers and executives. We place this high level of trust in our associates because RAs are the future of the GRB, and they are expected to rise to the challenge. The RA program builds and develops associates for their future career in the GRB through training, mentorship, and regular growth in roles and responsibilities.

What you'll do

  • Draw thoughtful conclusions from complex, mostly qualitative data from a cacophony of often-conflicting sources. Identify and collect the data you need to do so through a range of channels, including interviewing and surveying GRB members and speaking to key players throughout the broader technology ecosystem.
  • Propose and test insightful ideas through primary and secondary research and convey them in polished written, graphical, and verbal products. Aid in developing content and facilitating conversations that support our members' most important initiatives.
  • Identify and connect with industry leaders, academics, and startup executives, both to conduct research interviews and to build our extensive set of ecosystem and thought-leader relationships
  • Master research processes with an eye towards continuous innovation to ensure the GRB continues to provide world-class service.
  • Able to solve complex problems and successfully manage ambiguity and unexpected change
  • Teachable and embracing of best practices and feedback as a means of continuous improvement.

What you'll need

  • Bachelor's Degree (Technology background, higher degrees, or post-graduate work experience are welcomed, but not required)
  • Excellent writing, reading and critical thinking skills; interviewing and presentation skills are a plus. You'll need to be comfortable working in small, collaborative teams in an iterative, fast-paced manner
  • U.S. work authorization

What we offer

  • Direct interaction with our membership of senior executives from Fortune Global 500 companies and government agencies. You'll gain a view into how these executives are addressing their most strategic questions, and develop the skills needed to communicate at an executive level.
  • Opportunity to meet and engage with key thinkers in technology companies, Silicon Valley startups, academia, consulting groups, and venture capital firms
  • A highly learning-centric, trusting, and fun (!) work environment with colleagues who are well-rounded and deeply curious
  • A culture dedicated to learning and continuous improvement, ranging from professional presentation classes to structured feedback and one-on-one coaching and mentorship
  • Former RAs have been accepted to top business schools, PhD programs, and other graduate degree programs; gone to work for established companies and technology startups; or have continued their careers at Gartner. RAs are hired into a structured advancement program with promotion opportunities within two to three years
