What you'll be doing
You'll teach our customers, partners, and even colleagues to work with our product—Kentico Xperience. Not in traditional ways, with a chalk and a blackboard. Instead, you'll project your knowledge into e-learning courses and blog posts.
To be able to teach developers, you'll also need to be one. Exploring the C# source code of our product is often a must. The same is writing your own C# code on a daily basis. If you have experience in MVC development and you're interested in sharing the knowledge with the world, you're a perfect match. You won't be in direct contact with customers every day, but you'll still have all the necessary feedback provided through course surveys and conversations held by our colleagues in the Support, Sales, and Consulting departments.
About our courses
Currently, we're running on MVC 5, with big efforts being put to shifting to ASP.NET Core. This is being reflected in our courses, as well. In your daily routine, you'll cooperate with two other Training Specialists to create code snippets or even complete sample projects. As for the content of the courses, you'll be using any media that will suit the job: text, well-crafted screenshots, UML schemes, progress checks, or even videos. Once you master the product, you'll be able to put your skills to the test and prepare new questions for our official certification exam.
Our product development cycle gets shorter and shorter these days. The courses need to keep up with that pace. You'll demonstrate the new product features and APIs shortly after they get released to the general public. Therefore, you'll be one of the first people to work with the product (and thus have a chance to improve the product via direct feedback to devs).
You'll also have a chance—incentive even—to stay up to date with the newest technologies. You can sharpen your skills when working on the courses, or through our "Use Your Friday Well" initiative. Furthermore, you'll also have a chance to develop integrations and customizations for our learning management systems.

What it looks like in practice
We keep an agile and lean approach, so we constantly re-evaluate the needs of our customers. It is only us who maintains our backlog, no one else. We create the learning materials from start to finish—from gathering requirements, coding the solution, writing the courses, to maintaining the pool of certification questions.
Our team belongs to the Customer Education department. Our closest colleagues are Technical Writers, who maintain the documentation. Our goal is to create a well-integrated source of knowledge, so the courses and docs often refer to each other. We also cooperate closely with Solution Architects and Support Specialists. Last but not least, we work with developers. They give us peer reviews, explain complex concepts behind specific features, and teach us coding best practices.
In our innovation time, we sometimes create our own utilities, just to speed up our own work.
As for the way of working, although we prefer on-site work in our office, there's no problem with frequent remote work.
