  • 0-2 year of relevant work experience in data analysis, quantitative research, analytics or benchmarking

  • Demonstrated ability to teach and relay ideas, engage clients and work in global teams

Who you are:

We are looking for creative, analytically strong, articulate and self-motivated individuals who would like to develop a strong knowledge of the terrain along with building consultative problem-solving skills. Unlike management consulting, investment banking, or law, our strategic research positions do not depend on a special appetite or aptitude for sales or business development. Our search for talent is centered, without exception, on the ability to run deep on a logical, philosophical, or economic problem and resurface with rigorous original insight. Some of the shared characteristics of our successful hires include:

  • Excellent verbal communication skills, as you will be leading discussions with our global client base and senior leaders across Gartner

  • Working knowledge of data visualization tools such as Power BI, Tableau, and Xcelsius

  • Working knowledge of running supervised and unsupervised descriptive analysis including regression

  • Experience in sampling methodologies, survey questionnaire design, and data management
