  • 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:

    We are looking for an experienced Senior Software Engineer to join our growing data technology team. This role is responsible for building systems to consume and export data, improve data quality, and innovate within our products.


    You will be a key part of Forrester Analytics emerging efforts to embed our products into our clients’ and partners’ systems. As such, we are looking for a Senior Software Engineer who is technically talented, collaborates well with others, and is driven to make a difference rather than be one of a thousand engineers working on a system. We have a small, talented team, and we move quickly.


    You will drive solutions for our team in the following key areas:

    • Building products: You will be a part of a dynamic team that works closely with the product management team and our clients so that you know the impact you are having and what our clients truly need.
    • Innovating data pipelines: You will partner with internal and external teams to design, build, and enhance solutions that enable us to embed our data into a growing range of technologies and platforms. One example is securely integrating client data with proprietary Forrester data to support custom insights.
    • Improving quality: You will develop systems and processes to ensure we meet our security, reliability, quality, and performance goals.
    • Integrating machine learning into products: You will work with our data science team to productionize cutting-edge AI and machine learning research to make our clients more impactful.


    • A “team first” mentality with experience mentoring, reviewing code, and growing a team’s skills.
    • A product mindset focused on the outcomes of the work we do. Must love data and building things, such as tools, APIs, and platforms that transfer large amounts of data from heterogeneous systems.
    • Significant experience in engineering data solutions using a modern programming language such as Python, JavaScript, R, C#, or Java.
    • Experience in designing data structures in relational and nonrelational AWS-managed data stores (e.g., DynamoDB, Redshift, S3, RDS, etc.).
    • Experience in working with multiple technologies, such as security (e.g., NGINX, Incapsula, and SAML), cloud computing (e.g., AWS and Azure), and web services (e.g., REST and SOAP).
    • Familiarity with machine learning and artificial intelligence (e.g., word2vec, neural networks, and text classification).
    • Excellent problem-solving skills, including troubleshooting production systems.
    • The ability to innovate, lead the technical design and implementation of a wide variety of projects.
    • Detail-oriented, self-motivated, and highly organized.
    • The ability to push the further evolution of our Agile processes
    • BS in computer science or any related field is required; MS is preferred.
