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.
