Wanted – Cloud IaaS Expert

by Lydia Leong  |  March 22, 2012  |  1 Comment

Back in December, I blogged about five reasons you should work at Gartner with me, and I’ve pleased to announce that Doug Toombs (formerly of Tier 1 Research / 451 Group) has joined my team.

However, Ted Chamberlin, my long-time colleague, has decided he’d like a change of pace, and has just left us for the vendor universe, and so we’re now seeking to backfill someone into his job. You can find the formal job listing here: IaaS and Managed Hosting Analyst.

In plain language, this analyst is going to spend their time assisting our clients who are trying to adopt cloud IaaS and hosting (especially managed hosting) solutions. The ideal candidate is someone who has real-world expertise with building solutions using cloud IaaS (and preferably has tried multiple cloud IaaS offerings and can intelligently discuss the pros and cons of each), or has been involved in building a cloud IaaS offering for a service provider (and is knowledgeable about the competing offerings). They’re sharp technically but also understand the needs of the business — someone who is currently in an architect role, or is working for a cloud provider, is probably the most likely fit.

If this sounds like you, please get in touch with me — send a resume in email, or ask me privately for more information. (If you applied the last time around, please feel free to get in touch again; the requirements for this role are somewhat different.)

    We’ve worked with Doug previously and know that he is an outstanding addition at Gartner where we look forward to working with him some more. Well done!
