  • Brainstorm new creative solutions for eLearning and non-eLearning initiatives. 
  • Conduct research on existing tools, system, and techniques. 
  • Review proposals, and brainstorm solutions. 
  • Lead projects as either a lead engineer (while contributing to the hands-on efforts) or a project manager.  
  • Work closely with the team leads of all departments on improvement and innovation of processes and issue resolutions.
  • Actively influence the sales process by contributing to development of RFI responses, proposals, statements of work, and change orders.
  • Steer, or actively contribute to, the research, evaluation, and deployment of the new processes, utilities, and productivity systems.
  • Help determine the technical direction of the company in the areas of eLearning authoring and resourcing strategy.
  • Help to shepherd and steer installment of home-grown technologies.
  • Research and evaluate potential third-party vendors.
  • Maintain relationships with offshore and US-based technical shops, and integrate new offshore and US-based vendors into the fabric of active and prospective projects.
