- Build training modules and curriculum that can be delivered at scale, in diverse formats to support different learning styles and maximize engagement and understanding (ex. in-person hands-on product workshops, virtual presentations, self-service recorded videos, guided role-plays)
- Develop learning paths for a targeted audience that helps build the technical skills and language related to the DevOps space
- Evaluate, measure, and action on training effectiveness and performance metrics to continuously improve curriculum
- Produce executive-level reports in order to accelerate the success of the Revenue organization
- 2+ years direct training and curriculum design experience, preferably with customer-facing teams
- 2+ years of experience in a technical role (ex. solutions engineer, systems engineer, technical marketer, technical trainer)
- Validated understanding of AWS, GitHub, Docker, Jenkins, CI/CD, and the DevOps toolchain (preferably through firsthand user experience)
- Nuanced facilitation skills for both small and large group discussions, across all levels of the organization, and mixed-knowledge audiences
- Strong understanding of training as a tool for professional development throughout the employee lifecycle
- Experience using (or desire to learn) e-learning software and Enablement tooling (ex. Camtasia, Articulate 360, Gong, Salesforce, Skilljar, Confluence)
- Outstanding written and verbal communications, with an eye for design
- Comfortable with approximately 20-40% domestic and international travel annually (post-COVID)
