You will be working within the Incubation Engineering function, a critical part of our transformative business strategy. We accelerate prototypes that help us decide if an idea is a credible investment which should be productized and scaled in the future. We work with cutting edge technology such as cloud-native frameworks, machine learning, insights mining, and many other emergent solutions. Our team is highly independent, fast-paced and passionately committed to making the future of our product line the absolute best it can be.
The Impact You’ll Make
We are looking for energetic, intelligent and driven people to join our Incubation Engineering team. As a group of entrepreneurial-minded collaborators, we work together to rapidly assess, qualify, quantify, prototype, and present on ideas that prove to have a high confidence factor that they can become a material (>10%) of total revenue within 1-2 years. Very much like an internal incubator, this work is fast and fun, yet structured to predictably produce options for future and even existing lines of business.
You’ll be working with the team as technical brains and muscle to develop prototypes that demonstrate how they deliver on their key value propositions. Expect that all prototype code will be thrown away if taken to full scale, but that the technical learnings and validation of consumer product-fit are the critical outcomes of your work.
In coordination with a business analysis lead and the idea originator on each incubation project, each project will have a timebox (at most ~3mo) to come up with the very best business case and corresponding prototype to convince the Incubation board and leadership of the greatness of the incubation. Working on many prototypes per year, often in different areas of technology that require you to learn and grow, this will be your chance to develop a large portfolio of new capabilities and technical skill sets.
