VP of Software Engineering

Job ID: 3288


You’ve been a software engineer your whole career. You worked late into the night on code sprints. You did senior-level work for junior-level salary. In other words, you paid your dues. Shouldn’t an elite problem-solver like you be the one making important decisions for your company?

At Trilogy, management doesn’t simply mean oversight. It means making big decisions.

Trilogy is a software company, run by actual software engineers, not MBAs. We are looking for high-performing architects and hands-on developers with management experience to spearhead the most important teams in our engineering department. We need technical experts to solve our most challenging software engineering problems.

If you’re a technical-first software engineering manager looking to have an impact as strong as your ideas, we’d like to challenge you to lead a fast-scaling organization responsible for dozens of high-quality software releases per week. 

What you will be doing

  • Deep Dive analysis. Analyze technical problems and opportunities to improve our software quality, getting all the way into the code.
  • Writing Improvement Proposals. You will make technical recommendations to improve the quality of our software development, based on your deep dive findings.

What you will NOT be doing

  • You will not be doing project management. We hate project management. We create crystal-clear roles, define specific work units, and automate the “telling people what to do” so you don’t have to. 
  • You will not be doing HR and administrative management. We want your technical expertise. We will never waste your time doing performance reviews, committees, etc. 
  • You will not be overseeing steady-state operations. Our culture is continuous improvement. If it’s bad, fix it. If it’s good, make it better.

Key Responsibilities

Improving our software development operation. Based on your insights from reviewing a week’s worth of work, you propose and implement big ideas to simplify the code, systematically improve quality, and scale our growing portfolio of over 100 B2B software products.

Candidate Requirements

  • Technical/quantitative university degree. 
  • 5+ years of experience writing code. You’ll have to pass a coding test to get this job.
  • At least 5 years of post-university experience. Of course we will consider the specific circumstances, but be aware that this job requires significant real-world experience. 
  • Experience managing teams from multiple engineering functions (developers, designers, product managers, testers, etc.)

Nice to have

  • Experience in a shared-services or centralized environment.
  • Cloud development experience, especially AWS.
