  • Overview

    Fuel your intellectual curiosity and professional growth. Forrester is an idea company, where smart, motivated, curious people bring a diversity of opinions and the courage of their convictions to collaborate on ideas that change the course of business. Most of all, bring a point of view; here, every voice has value. At Forrester, you’ll work with innovative clients at emerging and established brands; these are the business and technology leaders we inspire and who inspire us. The Forrester experience is built on a singular, powerful purpose: to challenge thinking and lead change.

     

    About This Role:
    Analysts conduct innovative research and deliver advice through written reports, consulting, client inquiries, and speeches. As part of Forrester’s Infrastructure and Operations research team, the Senior Analyst serves I&O professionals and other tech leaders who are responsible for maximizing the business value of technology.

     

    We are specifically looking for a candidate who has deep knowledge and experience with a wide variety of automation technologies and their implications on business, customers, employees, and society as a whole. These issues include process optimization, skills evolution, job gains and losses, organization design, change management, and resulting improvements to quality, security, productivity, customer experience, and employee experience.  Candidates must demonstrate the confidence and ability to write, present to and advise clients across industries.

    Responsibilities

    • Develop a deep understanding of the market for and potentially transformative effects of automation technologies -- from robots to robotic process automation -- across a wide variety of functions such as technology infrastructure, industrial production, and business processes.
    • Collaborate as an active member of Forrester’s Automation Theme Team to drive awareness of automation developments and trends for our enterprise clients and how they can capitalize on these developments for competitive advantage.
    • Write four long research documents per year that convey new ideas and create four shorter pieces that summarize and frame important ideas for key technology leaders.
    • Consult with clients to apply Forrester’s research in the context of their business environment and help solve their problems through inquiry and advisory.
    • Present at Forrester-sponsored and industry-related events and deliver client webinars.
    • Establish an industry presence as an influential speaker and thinker. Participate in vendor briefings and field press inquiries as necessary.
    • Support sales in client development discussions.

     

    Qualifications

    • Extensive practical experience in some aspect of technology automation, either as a practitioner or as a technology provider serving such practitioners.
    • A profound spirit of team collaboration. We work as an integrated team with great chemistry.
    • A compelling stage presence and strong writing skills.
    • An insatiable curiosity – we seek answers to big questions and these answers are rarely obvious. We dig deep to find those answers in our ongoing research.
    • Ability to travel 30% of the time.

    • A desire to leave a positive impact on society. We seek people who can help us in our mission to change the world.

    • An ability to synthesize insights from multiple streams of information. The big answers almost never come from one source.
