AT WORK Dunk Shot TREVOR PHILLIPPI 15 Two things that Trevor Phillippi 15 has especially loved in his lifetime are basketball and hackathons. A four-time intramural A-League basketball champion Phillippi has also been a winner of top awards at such hackathons as PennApps Fall 2014 and HackBrown Spring 2015. Upon his graduation from Rensselaer Phillippi won the biggest prize of all a full- time job as a product designer at Facebook. On my hackathon projects I was the designer and I worked with computer science students to build interesting products in short periods of time says Phillippi. He won a top award from Facebook in 2014 for an iOS app called Walk With Me designed to address personal safety issues on college campuses which paved his way to his future employer. When I first entered Rensselaer I thought I wanted to do animation with computer design on the side Phillippi recalls. Then I saw that there was a world between art and science that is inhabited by designers. People were needed who could make interfaces look better and build prototypes and collaborate with engineers and thats what I learned to do at Rensselaer. And thats exactly what my job at Facebook is all about.
