Fight the Good Fight: Join RedMonk

We’re hiring, in case you haven’t heard. Specifically, we’re in the hunt for a new analyst. And this time around, it’s ok if you have a little less experience.

What does that mean, and what does an analyst do? Let’s talk RedMonk first.

Who We Are

Founded in 2002, we’re four years younger than Google and four years older than AWS. We exist because of developers. Our core thesis is very simple: developers are the new kingmakers. From open source to mobile to cloud to big data to DevOps, developers are in our view the audience most likely to determine success or failure.
Some smart companies have realized this, and try and give developers interesting new things to build and build from. We call these companies clients. We need you to help us help them.

Why Work For Us

Lots of reasons. You’ll get to work with the best and brightest companies in the technology industry. You’ll never be bored, stuck working on a single product in a cubicle that you don’t care about, for months or years. Instead you get to learn about (and often, work with) all the best new tech the industry has to offer. You’ll have a significant say into your own research agenda. Hours are flexible.

You will be going to many of the most interesting conferences in the country, and helping to run ours. You will publish research that will be widely read, consumed and acted on. We’ll provide you with nice equipment. Our clients are absolutely tremendous to work with. Whether you’re working with a two person startup or the largest firms in the world, they will believe in what you do because they believe in our mission. We try to have fun at work but also encourage a good work/life balance.

The most important reason to work for RedMonk, though, is because the work we do matters. We’ve been working since day one to improve the lot of developers the world over, and it’s working.

It’s a pretty good gig if you can get it, as they say.

Where We Are

Technically, we’re based in Portland, ME (America’s Coziest’s City!), but we’re also in the UK and New Hampshire.

We’re a distributed team, but for this role given its travel requirements we’re looking for someone based in the US.

What Do You Do

On the software side, our analysts have previously been a reporter, a research scientist, a software developer and a systems integrator. So the short answer is that we have no idea what you’re doing right now. We care less about your current role than we do your skillset.

Maybe this should have been the “Why You Don’t Have to be an Analyst Already” section.

The Role

We’re looking for someone that will make the role their own, working alongside those of us with a little more experience to define the future of the business – data-driven tech analysis and advisory services.

What You Will Do

What You Need to Have

Normally this is the section where the employer asks for 15 years of experience covering AWS and 10 building Android applications. We try to be 3% more reasonable with our asks. Our must haves:

It’d Be Nice If You Had
