Oktana is a custom software development company specializing in helping other companies leverage the Salesforce ecosystem. We have offices in Bolivia, Ecuador, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay and in the USA.
Do you have a passion for technology and getting people excited about learning? We are looking for an engineer or technical instructor to help us train all new developers, testers, business analysts and designers on the technologies we use every day. A lot of the curriculum leverages online training tools and focuses on teaching Apex, a Java-based language proprietary to Salesforce.
As an instructor, you will have a very important role in helping people build their careers. You will motivate the team and, as your own Salesforce knowledge increases, help them understand everything that will make them successful on their first project…and as they grow with Oktana.
This is not a developer job, but you should have hands-on programming experience – Java is a plus! You will start your time at Oktana by completing the same training material you will teach and continue to learn as time goes on.
As a member of the training team, you will also help identify training opportunities, create content and deliver new training when needed, including soft skills training and training on other platforms. Your goal is to contribute to a happy team by encouraging them to continuously learn and help them earn the certifications they need to be successful.
- Work with a team to continuously improve the onboarding and training experience
- Guide aspiring developers towards entry-level capabilities

You will gain:

- Experience as a teacher, trainer or instructor is preferred
- Experience as a team, technical or application development manager
