Join Us! SRMS has an opening!

We’re hiring for the Security & Risk Management Strategies (SRMS) team within Gartner for Technical Professionals. Full details here.

The official listing covers a LOT of territory, but here are some things to consider:

  • This position is with Gartner for Technical Professionals (GTP), which is distinctly different from the IT Leaders (ITL) team (which produces marketscopes, magic quadrants, etc.). Our focus is on an architectural perspective and we often approach research from the perspective of addressing technical questions.
  • Positions are generally work-from-home/remote! 🙂
  • The amount of travel required tends to be fairly low.
  • Doing research is the top priority!
  • Work-load is a nice balance between research, writing, speaking, and “other stuff” (like sales support).
  • There are plenty of opportunities for client interactions.
  • The pace of research is very nice, in large part because our documents tend to be longer and more thorough. For example, a typical GTP document will run anywhere from 25-40 pages, whereas ITL papers will typically be under 15 pages. Our audiences tend to be different, though security and risk management do tend to have some overlap.
  • SRMS is an awesome team! This is really a fun bunch to work with.
  • The sky’s the limit! No kidding. There is no limit to the available research opportunities. It makes the job a ton of fun!

So… those are my quick thoughts. I joined this team in June 2013 and am loving it. If you’re looking for an opportunity to do technical research, then this might be the opportunity you’ve been waiting for!
