Defensive Cyber Instructional Developer

The Opportunity:

Do you want to develop training that will transform cybersecurity? As an instructional developer, you know that even the best tools and processes can’t have an impact without the right education. Constructing an interactive course that teaches critical cyber weapon system functionality 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 cybersecurity by crafting effective training.

On our team, you’ll work with SMEs and product designers to capture your customer’s training needs and advise them on the right learning solution to help them accomplish their mission by putting the learner at the center of the training experience.

You’ll use your technical skills, creativity, and experience to come up with new ideas to develop an engaging and interactive learning experience. You know communication is key, so you’ll meet with SMEs and product designers 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 hone 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 shape a creative learning experience that will engage students.

Work with us as we improve national security through learner-centered instructional design and development.
