Help Wanted: Ultra-creative Elearning Designer/Developer

Shackleton's Crew

103 years ago tomorrow – On December 5, 1914 – a ship named Endurance set out from a whaling station on South Georgia Island to Antarctica with 28 men, a bunch of sled dogs and supplies enough to be the first ever party to cross Antarctica by land. The group was led by an explorer named Sir Ernest Shackleton and this was considered one of the greatest stories of adventure and survival in the 20th century.

In December 2012, two entrepreneurs with L&D backgrounds sat in a diner in the Adams Morgan neighborhood of Washington, DC and kicked around an idea for their own great adventure of sorts – how to transform the way learning happens in training rooms across the country.

Inspired by Sir Ernest Shackleton’s adventurous spirit, a company named Endurance Learning was born.

Legend holds that Shackleton took out an ad in a newspaper that read: “Men wanted for hazardous journey. Low wages, bitter cold, long hours of complete darkness. Safe return doubtful. Honour and recognition in event of success.” That was it. A simple job description.

This December, Endurance Learning is growing. Again taking inspiration from Shackleton, Endurance Learning is searching for an amazing, effective elearning designer/developer and here are the details:
