We are seeking an ID for a 3 month contract project (very good chance will lead to more work), to work directly with one of our clients. Some on-site will be required and so you must be either located in the San Francisco bay area or close enough to quickly travel from time to time to San Francisco (for example, LA etc.).

Instructional Designer position at SweetRush

Client is a fast paced high profile social media company and you must be able to pro-actively make your way and engage the project without a lot of hand-holding. You must be an enthusiastic and experienced learning professional able to create high-impact sales readiness solutions, and so sales training and performance improvement is crucial. This is about 50% about product selling and 50% about the shift to solution selling. This is more about ILT and VILT and less about elearning. You need to be able to work with SMEs and then decide which modalities will be effective, such as VILT, OTJ training, manager reinforcement etc. Bottom line: being an experienced ID is not enough: you must be a ‘go-getter’ who can make an impact and make things happen without the project and contend handed to you in a neat little package.
