Instructional Systems Designer, Senior

The Challenge:

Do you want to develop training that will transform the training challenges of the organization ? As an instructional designer, you know that even the best tools and processes can't have impact without the right training. Constructing an interactive course that teaches critical information requires a real passion for understanding the needs of your customer. We have an opportunity for an instructional designer who is committed to solving some of the toughest challenges by crafting effective training.

On our team, you'll work with SMEs to capture your customer's training needs and advise them on the right learning solution to help them accomplish their mission. You'll build training material with multimedia specialists, and instructors, following the ADDIE model. You'll use your technical skills, creativity, and experience to come up with new ideas to develop an engaging, interactive learning experience on screen or in a classroom. You'll recommend cutting-edge multimedia technologies and strategies, and blended training solutions, including synchronous and asynchronous courses to build a successful learning environment. You know communication is key, so you'll meet with clients throughout the process to discuss learning material and incorporate feedback. To ensure your solution is hitting the mark, you'll collect and analyze results using evaluation methodologies such as the Kirkpatrick Model, then fine tune your training for maximum impact. You'll be able to build your leadership skills as you share your expertise through leadership and mentoring. As a leader, you'll identify new opportunities to build solutions to your customer's learning needs. This is a chance to use your deep understanding of training methodologies to build a creative learning experience that will engage students. Join us as we improve the organization through learner-centered instructional design.
