• Develop thought leading research deliverables.
• Work with clients on strategic and tactical technology challenges.
• Deliver presentations at Gartner events, including Catalyst, Summits, and Symposia.

o Expertise with core data center networking architecture, implementation and support. Hands-on experience with DNS, NAT, VLAN, Subnets, Layer 2 and Layer 3 configurations would be advantageous.

o Expertise with public cloud network architecture, implementation and support. Hands-on experience with AWS VPCs, Azure vNets, or Google Cloud VPCs would be advantageous.
o Expertise with hybrid cloud or cross cloud network architecture, implementation and support. Hands-on experience with carrier neutral colocation, AWS Direct Connect, Azure Express Route or Google Direct Interconnect would be advantageous.
o Expertise with wireless network architecture, implementation and support. Hands-on experience with Wi-Fi, 5G, 4G/LTE or proprietary edge networking wireless protocols would be advantageous.
o Expertise with network load balancers or application delivery controller architecture, implementation and support. Hands-on experience with AWS Elastic Load Balancing, Azure Load Balancer, Barracuda, Citrix, F5, or others would be advantageous.

• Candidates may come from an end user environment, hardware vendor, software vendor or cloud provider in the product team, creative design shop as a supplier and/or a consulting background in this space. 

• Whilst hands-on technical knowledge and experience is critical, it is equally important that the successful candidate can see beyond design to meet business and commercial aims.
