Decker Digital Manager

  • Short Term Position For Immediate Hire (up to 6 months, with potential for temp-to-hire if you are SUPER-AWESOME and a great fit on our team, which we hope you are)
  • San Francisco, CA

Overview:

This gig is two-parts Project Management, one-part Product Management, and one-part Instructional Design.

Decker Communications is expanding our 37-year old business communication training, coaching and consulting brand from only offering in-person experiences to include a host of new virtual training modules and coaching options for our clients’ disparate and flexibility-craving workforces.

What’s The Big Deal?

Decker Digital is a new, unlike-anything-else-in-its-class, innovative online learning experience. It’s award-winning, too!

Our initial launch is complete and we’re now sending it into orbit. We need your help to complete beta-testing for cross-browser functionality, compile user feedback, evolve our Learning Management Platform, and manage pre- and post-sales and support processes.

Ok Tell Me More…

Remember, this is a temporary position that we hope will lead to much more! Here’s what we think this all looks like:

Project Management

  • You should read “experienced project manager” and think, timelines, deliverables, follow-up: Check! You should have several examples of times when you developed, demonstrated and enforced these things.
  • Nothing gets by you: Excellence is a high bar, and your role is to make sure we get there. You never miss a deadline, no matter what.
  • Excitement – scratch that – make it straight up enthusiasm and outpouring energy around creating digital solutions for instructional design.
  • What else do you bring to the team? Peace of mind. That everything you touch will be completed, checked, and perfect. Thank you in advance. :)
  • Tenacious, start-up-level “I’m-gonna-get this-done-because-we-need-it-now” attitude, while still exhibiting humble confidence (Translation: For you, it’s not “my way or the highway;” rather, you say, “I will get us to the highway.” And you will figure it out, grab the help you need, and get it done. Period.
  • Excellent listening/communication skills
  • Relationship building skills – because relationships matter around here. A lot.
  • High Proficiency in Google Docs, Microsoft Office

Product Management

  • Working knowledge of eLearning Management Systems and tools such as Moodle, Litmos, Learn Upon, etc.
  • Familiarity with SCORM compliance and what it does (you should definitely know what these acronyms stand for, and how companies use them)
  • Experience with JIRA, SmartSheets, Adobe Creative Suite… a major plus. Experience with project management tools: Essential.
  • Proficiency in developer-speak. Not necessarily actual programming languages (though that’s a massive bonus). You just need to be able to talk to a developer and support/challenge direction where needed.

Develop, document and manage pre- and post-sales and support processes.

Instructional Design

  • Consult with Decker Digital team to enhance existing eLearning content on a regular and proactive basis.
  • Upload and test content (cross-browser, web-based, etc.) to ensure functionality and partner with eLearning Technologist to troubleshoot as needed to ensure success of course.
  • Develop instructional materials and evaluate and assess the instructions as well as the impact of these instructions.
  • Ability to troubleshoot courses and a working knowledge of various media file formats.
  • Must have high proficiency with webcam technology and tools
  • Keep abreast of development within the e-Learning fields and ensure that software skills are up to date.
  • Knowledgeable of Adult Learning Theory

Experience designing innovative and engaging eLearning courses.

Compensation: Hourly, and competitive. Let’s put it this way, if you’re the right person for this role, we want you. Promise.

How to apply: Email Kelly (kelly@decker.com) with a resume and a brief cover letter that (1) outlines why you’re the right person for the role, (2) identifies your favorite bullet point on the list, above, and (3) explains why
