CircleCI is looking for an Internal Technical Trainer to support the Revenue team in developing technical content and training materials for customer-facing teams. As the Technical Trainer, you will lead development and execution of technical trainings, and work closely with the Senior Enablement Manager, Product Marketing, and Solutions Engineering to plan for and create new content. We are looking for someone to help develop industry-leading sales and customer success professionals, through their expertise, drive, technical knowledge and deep understanding of adult learning theory (or training). You will play a key role in accelerating growth of our geographically distributed Revenue organization as the first Technical Trainer hire on a growing Enablement team.

We are looking for candidates that will bring a combination of strong technical and training skills. You have DevOps or CI/CD experience, and are comfortable facilitating trainings and discussions both in-person and in virtual environments (i.e. Learning Management Systems.) You are excited by the challenge of training non-technical employees on highly technical concepts, and committed to challenging and improving our status quo as it relates to employee learning.

This role reports into the Senior Enablement Manager, and will work cross-functionally with other internal teams to develop best-in-class training materials. This role is vital to CircleCI’s significant growth plans, and we are looking for someone who is excited to be part of a growing organization, and loves technology and teaching. You must be personable, self-motivated, and committed to tackling big challenges.
