Principal Software Architect, Trilogy (São Paulo) - $800,000/year USD

Job ID: 3686

Zero politics, no office or travel, hardly any meetings. Senior technical architects at Trilogy focus on what really matters, without the BS. They make foundational, strategic—yet deeply technical—decisions that determine the success of our software products. They are responsible for identifying which decisions will have the greatest impact.

Trilogy thinks big. Whether adopting fully-remote work over 10 years ago or pioneering cloud-based charging engines for telcos, we aren’t afraid to make huge bets. We own over 100 SaaS products in our ever-growing portfolio and have an endless supply of technical challenges. Superior technical designs always outweigh cost considerations and we expect our team to make important decisions that will give our products a technical advantage for the next decade. 

Join us to earn $400/hour for up to 40 hours per week while expanding your technical abilities, impacting millions of users, and having full control over when and where you work. You will collaborate with an asynchronous, fully-remote team of technical experts who are pushing the boundaries of what is possible with the latest cloud tech. 

What you will be doing
  • Creating, reimagining, and rearchitecting a virtually endless supply of software products by identifying patterns in complex systems and finding ways to make them 10x simpler
  • Making foundational technical architecture decisions that will give our products a competitive advantage for the next decade
  • Leveraging the full array of AWS products, without cost constraints
What you will NOT be doing
  • Navigating internal politics to push forward your technically superior architecture 
  • Spending your day in meetings, creating slide decks, and managing other people
  • Traveling
Key Responsibilities
  • 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
  • Utilize other architects as force multipliers, mentoring them by providing high-quality feedback on their work
  • Synthesize your decisions and designs into clear and structured written specs
Candidate Requirements
  • At least 15 years of experience making important architecture and design decisions on software projects, such as the application of architecture design patterns or significant open source technologies
  • 2+ years of experience making technical design decisions involving the use of cloud computing services
  • Experience working as a senior influencer on complex software systems
  • Ability to simplify complex ideas and communicate them in writing with clear, logical thinking
