Your Journey Begins Here. Your Journey Begins Here.

Our Technology Associate Program

The TA Program is for students who want to launch their technology careers. We provide a two-year program that exposes students to a range of jobs and responsibilities and prepares them for the rest of their Bridgewater and tech careers. For those who haven't graduated yet, we provide an internship experience that offers a 10-week taste of the program.

Career

Career

We'll help you find your fit. There are several domains of focus for Technology Associates and interns at Bridgewater. Depending on your preferences, skills, and fit with a team, you'll work as a Software Engineer in one of four main areas, or parts of the stack: Business Logic, Front End/Applications, Platforms, or Infrastructure. We’ll help you find the right area before you start and after you finish.

Management And Mentorship

Management And Mentorship

We'll make sure you don't get lost in the shuffle. We intentionally hire a small class so that every TA is paired with a mentor when they start—and has a manager who cares about them as an individual, not as capacity on a project. Many managers and mentors are alumni of the TA program themselves. They’ve been there before and will guide you through the beginning stages of your career.

Training

Training

There is no set path. You'll have the opportunity to explore different areas—experiencing new challenges, team dynamics, and problem sets. You'll receive informal training through your department and manager and formal training through our Tech Boot Camp. Created by an Engineering Manager who was previously a professor at the University of Chicago and the University of Arizona, the program is now led by Senior Technologists. TAs also travel with their teams to tech conferences across the country for training, development, and exposure. A few recent conferences include Grace Hopper, Scala Days, HashiConf, and Women Who Code.

Impact

Impact

When you're here, your work matters. We won't feed you bugs to solve. You'll be on the front lines of real business problems from Day 1, determining, building, and delivering real solutions. Our goal is for every TA to have an immediate and lasting impact. You will directly affect Bridgewater’s business—not work on side projects or tasks that will never be released into production.

Community

Community

It's not all work. Between TA events like ski trips to Vermont (skiing optional), our Game of Drones competition, off-site hackathons, and our $100 Build-a-Boat Sailing Challenge, there's plenty of play.
