Do you love the thrill of tackling complicated subject matter? Is your Mission
Impossible making it a breeze for someone of any skill level to learn a new system? Do you love problem-solving so much that you jump at the opportunity to assemble a piece of IKEA furniture? If so, then you just might be the E-Learning Instructional Designer we need. Okay, so your role probably won’t involve constructing a new armoir with only stick figures as your guide. But, we will give you all the tools you need to succeed and grow—along with the freedom to do your job. So, if you like a cool, collaborative, and challenging work environment, you’ll fit right in. We’ve got big plans, but we can’t achieve them without you.

- Juggle many complex tasks, all with a sense of urgency, simultaneously and accurately. Major props if you can actually juggle like a real circus performer.

- Know how to roll up your sleeves. We have a lot of brass tacks here, and we like to get down to ’em.
- Jibe with our culture. We’re talkin’ energy, integrity, positivity, a hunger for knowledge, and a passion for sharing it. Bring all that and a bag of chips. Seriously, we love chips.
