You will work collaboratively with members from a variety of teams to design training that will be delivered through multiple channels: on-demand, Virtual Instructor-Led Training (VILT) and classroom. You will also need to maintain training courses and materials and possess the communication and presentation skills to deliver training.

To be successful in this role, you will need to be detail-oriented, skilled in video and audio production tools, flexible, and thrive in a fast-paced environment with multiple deadlines and shifting priorities.

  • Use modern instructional design techniques, design and develop training content, in a variety of formats including graphics, audio, video, and animation/simulation technologies.

  • Work collaboratively with other members of the technical training team, both remote and on-site.
  • Manage multiple projects from start to finish; on time and within budget.

What we’re looking for:

  • Experience designing, developing and delivering training materials, for both technical and non-technical audiences, using instructional design methodologies, adult learning theory and application, and e-learning technologies.
