Excerpts from the job description:
- Create and maintain high quality, accurate, and in depth documents or architecture positions in information security, application security, infrastructure security, and/or related coverage areas;
- Prepare for and respond to customer questions (inquiries/dialogues) during scheduled one hour sessions with accurate information and actionable advice, subject to capacity and demand;
- Prepare and deliver analysis in the form of presentation(s) delivered at one or more of the company’s Catalyst conferences, Summit, Symposium, webinars, or other industry speaking events;
- Participate in industry conferences and vendor briefings, as required to gather research and maintain a high level of knowledge and expertise;
- Perform limited analyst consulting subject to availability and management approval;
- Support business development for GTP by participating in sales support calls/visits subject to availability and management approval;
- Contribute to research planning and development by participating in planning meetings, contributing to peer reviews, and research community meetings
In essence, your job would be to research, write, guide clients (via phone inquiries/dialogs) and speak at events. Also, we do list a lot of qualifications in the job req, but you can look at my informal take on them in this post.
A few common questions that candidates have asked in the past:
- Location? Any location in the US works, Canada and Europe may work as well, Asia will not.
- Do we really need 15 years experience? Well, we don’t need exactly 15 years, but we do need diverse and extensive experience (ideally, “vendor + enterprise + consultant”, but “pick any 2 of those” works as well)
- Travel? It probably will be less than 20-25%. Personally, I lost most of my airline status at this job : – )
- Focus areas? We do need you to have a few security areas where you understand real-world problems, working solutions, specific products, architectural choices, etc in depth and first hand (as “a doer”, not “a talker”).
P.S. If you have questions, feel free to email me – I cannot promise a prompt response, but I sure can promise a response.
