Sr. Principal, Finance AI Expert - Remote, NA

About The Function:

Gartner Analysts are industry thought leaders who use exceptional research and analytical skills to create frame-breaking insights, market predictions and smart how-to guidance for a broad range of world-leading organizations. They are a trusted source of advice for clients, reinforcing Gartner’s value every day via consultative virtual and in-person meetings, sales support interactions and Gartner conferences to discuss complex client challenges and recommended actions.

The Role:

We’re looking for a forward-thinking Finance AI Expert to join the Gartner Finance Practice at the Senior Principal level.

As a Finance AI Expert you will regularly meet with Finance leaders such as CFOs, FP&A leaders, Controllers, Finance Transformation leaders and their teams to advise on their finance AI-related challenges and questions. If you’ve spent a good part of your career working in financial planning, finance analytics and have exposure to how companies are getting the most from investments in advanced analytics and AI/ML tools, then this expert role is for you.

The successful candidate will be comfortable discussing and researching topics including:

  • Finance AI use cases
  • Finance experience with advanced analytics tools
  • Finance AI governance strategies
  • Finance AI technology developments
  • Finance AI pilots and approaches to scaling AI impact

Additional career exposure to forecasting, planning, budgeting, consolidation, data & analytics and business partnership beyond the Finance function (e.g., CIO, CDO, CDAO) will be highly valuable.

What you’ll do / Key Responsibilities :

  • Create unique, defensible and consumable “must-have research” content that directly addresses the AI priorities and opportunities of finance leaders.
  • Serve as a leading authority on finance AI and advanced analytics topics, such as: understanding Finance AI use cases; setting up AI pilots and scaling AI initiatives; ensuring proper governance of finance AI tools; navigating the Finance AI technology landscape; connecting AI to day-to-day finance process improvement and wholesale finance transformation.
  • Stay abreast of broader research and trends in finance artificial intelligence.
  • Provide current and prospective clients with actionable advice via virtual and face-to-face interactions.
  • Support business growth and client engagement strategies by partnering with Gartner’s commercial organization to create long-term value for both clients and Gartner.
  • Act as an internal advisor on how AI practices, technologies and approaches are impacting the finance function.
  • Create and deliver presentation materials for Gartner events, industry and professional association conferences, and client briefings.
  • Build your personal brand as a functional expert to drive Gartner’s research, methodology and strategy.

What you’ll need:

  • 8+ years’ experience with Finance AI topics or working in finance or general D&A teams with increasing scope and responsibility.
  • Exposure to major finance processes, data sources, technologies and workflows.
  • Experience with the deployment of advanced analytics capabilities to support short-, mid- or long-term decision making.
  • Exposure to advanced analytics tools and approaches via on-the-job experience or formalized education (backgrounds in math, statistics, and physics a plus).
  • Exposure to using AI/ML in forecasting, or experience with quantitative analytics, statistics and coding languages (preferably Python) a bonus.
  • Moderate willingness to travel; though primarily a virtual role, Analysts occasionally have opportunities for domestic and international travel.

Who you are:

  • Collaborative: extremely comfortable connecting, coordinating and delivering impact with global colleagues and clients in both virtual and face-to-face settings
  • Organized: skilled at multitasking, prioritizing, and working under deadlines across various project types
  • Confident: able to make sound decisions on projects and drive for results with minimal supervision (i.e., in a remote, virtual-first environment)
  • Analytically savvy: able to flex strong critical reasoning skills and analytical capabilities to understand drivers of challenges and propose solutions
  • Naturally curious: a life-long learner with an enthusiasm for exchanging ideas with others
