Senior eLearner Developer - 100% Remote - Canada and United States Worldwide

Company: Sonatype

A staggering volume and variety of open source and third-party component parts flow through every software development environment in the world.  If properly sourced and managed, these components are a tremendous source of energy for accelerating innovation. If not, they can easily overwhelm your development efforts and lead directly to security vulnerabilities, licensing risks, and enormous waste.  We envisioned a better way to harness the power of open source, and in 2008, started a company to automate the modern software supply chain.

Sonatype's Customer Education team is looking for an experienced eLearning Developer. We have a wide-range of expertise. This includes (but isn't limited to) technical communication, video production, and instructional design.

While we appreciate the power of superb educational content, we also spend time expounding on nuances like a belief in the Oxford comma.

More important than anything else, we’re a diverse group with an appreciation for building a team of great people. We have fun, believe in mutual respect, and have found that perfect mix of sarcasm and camaraderie. If this sounds interesting, please contact us. We’d love to speak to you.

    • Guiding learners across basic skills, best practices, and product expertise
    • Recording and editing video and audio content

    • Identifying desired learning objectives and outcomes, based on customer needs
