Instructional Systems Designer

The Challenge:

Do you want to develop training that will transform national security? As an instructional developer, 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 developer who is committed to solving some of the toughest challenges in national security by crafting effective training.

On our team, you’ll work with SME's to capture your customer’s training needs and recommend the right learning solution to help them accomplish their mission. Putting the learner at the center of the training experience, you’ll design synchronous, asynchronous material, or performance support tools. You’ll build training material with 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 use cutting-edge multimedia technologies and strategies, including blended learning and screencasting to build a successful learning environment. You know communication is key, so you’ll meet with SMEs and instructors 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. We focus on growing as a team to make the best solutions for our customers, so you’ll learn new tools and skills to develop a creative learning experience that will engage students. Join us as we improve national security through learner-centered instructional development.

Empower change with us.
