Open jobs

Are you a passionate FinTech Professional with a knack for changing lives? Do you love writing, teaching, and storytelling as much as you love writing Python code? Are you a Blockchain wizard who loves discussing the latest trends in the field? Then we may have the position for you.

At Trilogy Education Services, we’re creating programs to train new audiences for careers in the tech industry. Our programs are taught at leading universities across the country including the University of Pennsylvania, University of California Berkeley, Northwestern, UNC Chapel Hill, Rutgers, UT Austin, and many others. We pride ourselves on building high-quality programs that help ambitious, hardworking adults change their lives through practical skills, fundamental knowledge, and the confidence to advance their careers.  

We’re looking for a top-notch FinTech professional with a love for teaching, inspiring, and helping newcomers enter the field of financial technology. The program we’re developing combines theoretical teaching with plenty of hands-on practical, skills-based training.

Who You Are:

  • Someone with at least 3+ years of industry experience in the financial technology sector. This is a great place to build your skills and learn new ones!
  • Someone with a lot of hands-on experience. We’re building a program in which students learn by doing! At a minimum, you should have a strong familiarity with tools like:
    • Python (Pandas, PyViz, Numpy, Scikit Learn)
    • APIs
    • Trading Algorithms
    • Robo-Advisors
    • RegTech
    • Machine Learning
    • Blockchain (Solidity)
    • Cryptocurrencies (Bitcoin, Ethereum)
  • Someone who absolutely loves teaching and sharing knowledge with others. It’s ideal if you’ve taught financial technology or programming in the past. Major plus if you’ve spoken at fintech conferences, or have experience with online or asynchronous learning.
  • Someone with a creative itch! This program will require a great deal of ingenuity and setup to create at scale. We want someone who is excited by the idea of creating KYC applications in blockchain or machine learning powered trading algorithms.
  • Someone who is a lot of fun! We want learning technology to be exciting and engaging. Imagine an engineering class that feels like a Disney movie. We need fun people to make this a reality.
  • Someone who can work well in a distributed team. We’ve got a team of brilliant curriculum developers who can build amazing modules. We want someone who can bring expertise and new ideas to the program.  
  • Someone who isn’t afraid to get their hands dirty. In this capacity, you’ll be responsible for keeping a living curriculum up-to-date for hundreds of Instructors and TAs across the country. This means managing issues, pull requests, and bug fixes. It also means taking in community input on technology trends and feedback on the curriculum. We need someone with a bit of thick skin, an infectious enthusiasm for continual improvement, and a collaborative spirit..
  • Someone who is looking for more than just a paycheck. We can’t stress this enough. Deep within all of us at Trilogy is the belief that our programs change lives. Each month we hear from countless students attesting to how our program brought them new skills, landed them new jobs, and a renewed sense of confidence. This impact is what our work is really about to us.

What You Will Do:

  • You will be responsible for dreaming up and creating instructional activities for demonstrating key concepts in the area of financial technology.
  • You will be responsible for improving portions of our curriculum based on student learning data -- and continually asked to create improved content for teaching topics covered in our program.
  • You will be responsible for staying abreast of technology trends and incorporate these trends into the curriculum.
  • Lastly, and most importantly, you will be responsible for making sure our program is the very best FinTech training program it can be. We want the person in this role to feel accountable to our students’ success in the same way we hold ourselves accountable to their success in all other areas.
