This job is no longer active - but you can still view the details below.

The Job: This position is ideal for an enthusiastic, energetic individual who enjoys engaging with clients virtually (online), face-to-face, and through social media. In this role, you’ll have the opportunity to learn Blackbaud software, training technology and delivery. Your training assignments will allow you to interact with a diverse group of nonprofit organizations while positively impacting their mission.

The Location: We periodically hire in several metro areas around the country. Currently, we expect our next opportunities to be in Los Angeles, New York City, Charleston, Austin, Chicago or Washington D.C. We are interested in hearing from candidates located in those cities or interested in relocating there.

Take the First Steps: Don't let this opportunity pass you by! We’re looking for candidates with a variety of experience and background. If you’re excited about the role and have the skill set to match, please complete both of the following:

  • Submit an application AND
  • Complete a recorded video interview at this link - http://blackbaud.hirevue.com/signup/sV4KAjK5LbsVKXhhPKNkCZ/

    Note: This is not a live interview, but it gives you the chance to see some of our team and let us learn more about you!

We review all submissions and can’t wait to see if you could be Blackbaud’s next Instructor!

Who We Are Looking For: Do you enjoy explaining complex topics? Are you always taking the lead to help others? At Blackbaud University, we’ve found that our most successful instructors have a true passion for teaching, so if you can answer yes to both of these questions, you might have what it takes. In addition to being engaging facilitators – our instructors are also extremely tech savvy and eager to understand the WHY. You should possess strong written and verbal communications skills and you should be comfortable speaking in public. A bachelor's degree is preferred, and we’ll be excited if you have experience in small to mid-size adult group facilitation, knowledge of one or more Blackbaud products, and experience educating adults on technology solutions, both online and in person.

What You’ll Be Doing: You’ll play a key role in our organization’s success by delivering training and nonprofit best practices to Blackbaud software users. Upon successful completion of in-depth training focused on a specific Blackbaud product, you’ll begin teaching and helping clients as a Blackbaud Software Instructor. This position affords the versatility to teach in-person at locations across the U.S. and Canada, as well as online using Blackbaud’s proven distance learning technology. We work in a supportive, collaborative atmosphere and are focused on the success of our clients. 

Our Purpose: At Blackbaud, we believe the world would be a better place if good took over and if everyone on a mission to do good had the power to do even more. That’s why we come to work every day -- to equip and connect the world’s philanthropic community so good can take over. On the Educational Services team, we are committed to supporting the success of our clients’ missions, providing world-class training -- with heart and excellence.

Our People: We are Heart + Smart. We have employees who are passionate about doing good and helping others with their philanthropic missions. We believe we do our best work when we are having fun. And while we are working to enable the success of our nonprofit customers, we are enabling the success of our people. We are committed to developing the careers of our employees through learning, professional development, and a predefined career progression path for the Software Instructor role.

An Insider's view of Blackbaud

What are some social events your company does?

We try to do at least one event per month that caters to all interest areas, whether that’s our Pinewood Derby, our May the 4th Be With You Movie Marathon or Progressive Potlucks, where employees tour the office to pick up different parts of the meal. We also championed having a float in the Austin Pride Parade this year for the first time ever.

How does the company support your career growth?

We have a very employee-focused environment. Our managers and team leads will often discuss career development strategies with us and offer opportunities to connect with people who can give us firsthand information about a role or experience. To help us be as successful as possible, they suit our strengths and the company's needs.

Kristin Nelson

Team Lead, Sales

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

We have changed our fundamental offering from a software solution to a series of capabilities and analytics that have an immediate and measurable impact on customer outcomes. This allows our sales team to be highly consultative with clients, introduce them to a broader community and have confidence that the outcomes we promise will be delivered.

Brandon Phipps

VP of Sales and Market Development

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

In just over 3 years, I went from an associate account executive to a sales team lead and was then given the opportunity to completely re-imagine the inside sales team here in Austin. We are growing very fast, and one of our team’s fundamental purposes is to support this growth by generating top-notch sales talent that can be promoted.
