Instructional Systems Designer

The Challenge:

Do you want to develop training that will transform Cybersecurity? 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 tradecraft 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 in Cybersecurity 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 goals. Putting the learner at the center of the training experience, you’ll design performance support tools. You’ll build training material with Cyber SMEs and graphic artists 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, including blended learning to build a successful learning environment. You know communication is key, so you’ll meet with the client 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.
