Instructional Designer

Do you want to produce awesome guided online courses that are followed by an international community? Do you want to take part in the creation of innovative digital banking software? As a learning designer at Backbase, you contribute to our overall success by creating learning content in a fun, creative and visually exciting way.

What you'll do

After a morning cup of tea or coffee, you team up with a senior member of our team or a subject matter expert from another department to brainstorm about the new technical course you will design and deliver next month. Together you define the structure and agree on the next steps.
You open your inbox and see a reply to the feedback request you sent to our community members yesterday. “Wow, that makes sense” you tell yourself and start shaping the existing course content according to the learners’ needs.
You then throw on your headphones and turn on “work mode”. Based on your morning session you start to create content for your new course and spice it up with some fun and interactive elements. Since you are a tech geek yourself, you feel comfortable with putting all the things together to create an advanced course and even have time to test it before the release.
Since you take full ownership of the course, you plan the next round of edits and continuously improve the content quality.
