This Role: The Strategic Intelligence team is looking for an analyst who can distill a large breadth of information into a compelling narrative for an executive audience. Critically, each point within these narratives will highlight why an executive should care (i.e. So what?). The expected output from this process will be presentation slides, talking points, and/or one-page executive takeaways.

A successful candidate will thrive within an environment where autonomy is given and a proactive mentality that favors action is expected. Additionally, this candidate will love actively consuming large amounts of information daily from a variety of sources and on a variety of topics.

  • Produce and review presentation slides, talking points, and/or one-page executive takeaways for executive audiences regarding current events, emerging technology, and security trends.
  • Consume, analyze, and distill a holistic representation of our Insikt team’s research, as well as open-source research
  • Occasionally work under tight deadlines to support ad hoc requests from Recorded Future executives
  • Maintain awareness of cybersecurity trends, security best practices, and macrogeopolitical and economic trends.
  • Collaborate with executives at Recorded Future who will deliver briefings in the form of slide decks and conversational talking points

Required Skills / Experience:

  • 4+ years experience as a research analyst, consultant, or similar positions
  • Strong critical thinking, writing, and speaking ability - to be assessed via (1) a one-page executive takeaway and (2) a panel presentation
  • Demonstrable experience researching and analyzing cyber, geopolitical, and/or physical threats
  • Ability to simplify complex technical concepts in written and verbal products
  • Ability to craft compelling perspectives around a technical topic, then argue its validity in a logical and persuasive way
