Innovation Catalyst

Job ID: 4513

Description

Perhaps you've heard of The Innovator's Dilemma -- as companies grow, they lose their creative edge and get disrupted by a smarter, more agile startup. Trilogy is one of the largest privately held software companies in the world. But rather than waiting to be disrupted, we're constantly, obsessively disrupting ourselves.

Every year, Trilogy hires and trains dozens of the world's brightest new graduates to join our two-year fellowship program, beginning Autumn 2021. We’re building a global virtual team and are looking for entry-level software engineers like you who want to tackle some of the world's most pressing problems. Unlike others, when we say entry-level, we mean it. You should graduate in 2020 or 2021 with a computer science degree - no work experience required. 

While some entry-level roles focus on giving you repetitive problems and teaching you to follow directions, we are looking for passionate problem-solvers who can work closely with our most senior leaders to create transformative solutions. 

You will be laser-focused on performing breakthrough experiments to tackle high-level business challenges. You'll get to decide what to do and how you do it, from planning through deployment. You'll have fun. You'll get great feedback. And upon graduation, you'll join an elite class of alumni who've launched careers as entrepreneurs, leaders, and influencers. 

It won't always be easy, but we promise there will never be a dull moment. 


What you will be doing

  • Diving into a new business problem every 6-8 weeks, building understanding  by interviewing product owners and customers and doing industry research
  • Determining the "what" and the "how" to solve your problem -- you're the owner, so this is up to you!
  • Conducting weekly experiments -- writing code, reviewing outcomes, debugging, logging your learnings, and planning the next experiment
  • Delivering your prototypes and deployments to real customers

What you will NOT be doing

  • Being told exactly what to do and how to do it. We’re looking for initiative and an entrepreneurial spirit.
  • Getting it right all the time. We believe in failing fast and adapting to our learnings; you’ll need to embrace open feedback and be willing to grow.
  • Working on your own. You’ll work as part of a small team (2 - 3 people) to tackle challenges, so you must have excellent written communication and collaboration skills.

Key Responsibilities

  • Invent technical solutions to complicated problems
  • Make clear, simple, and technically superior design decisions
  • Apply an exceptionally high quality bar to the core technical design decisions -- data structures, algorithms, architectural patterns, and the leverage of third-party implementations
  • Synthesize your decisions and designs into clear, structured written specs

Candidate Requirements

  • Hands-on experience in coding in at least one scripting and one OOP language
  • Proven problem-solving skills, with the ability to approach problems analytically
  • Intellectually curious
  • Basic understanding of system design
  • Ability to communicate effectively with a variety of audiences

Nice to have

  • UI/frontend skills
  • One or more research papers in a specific domain (e.g., ML, cloud, AI)
