Analyst

Stratfor's team of analysts come from extremely diverse backgrounds and share an intense passion for understanding how the world operates through a geopolitical lens. We are looking for candidates that demonstrate a high quality of mind and energy for what we do.

We care about how you think, first and foremost. To be considered for an analyst position, you must be willing to internalize Stratfor's geopolitical methodology to make sense of the world. You must be willing to go beyond a narrow area of expertise to understand how issues connect across regions and themes. We are not in the business of making policy prescriptions: You must suppress biases, internalize the constraints shaping a state’s behavior and focus on what will happen versus what should happen. You must demonstrate both rigor and creativity in how you analyze fragments of information from intelligence feeds. You must possess the intellectual discipline to regularly have your baseline assumptions challenged without getting your feelings hurt. And you must love this enough to live and breathe the job. This is a fast-paced working environment that carries a lot of responsibility, and we need people who can not only handle the work, but who also thrive in a place where both speed and depth of analysis hold equal weight.

Job Responsibilities

As a member of Stratfor’s core team of analysts, you will be responsible for supplying Stratfor’s main publishing arm with consistent, forward-looking intelligence and analysis and for providing briefings to Stratfor’s diverse set of clients. 

Analysts are not only responsible for processing a large amount of information daily to stay on top of current events; a successful Stratfor analyst is able to step back from the noise, identify the key constraints to action and home in on the deeper trends in motion to develop long-term strategic forecasts. They must excel in using fragments of information and a geopolitical framework to build a coherent picture. While analysts have areas that they specialize in, our forecasts encompass political, economic, security and technological forces, requiring a well-rounded approach and the ability to absorb and transmit knowledge quickly. If you thrive in a fast-paced environment, like to dig into a lot of issues at once, and are a pro at multitasking, this is a good place for you.

An analyst’s main output is in the form of written analysis for the company’s online publishing arm, as well as custom briefings for clients. Candidates must therefore demonstrate creativity and clarity in their thinking and writing. Stratfor’s engagement with clients and international media also necessitate a professional presence with excellent briefing and verbal communication skills.
