Koha Trainer/Support Team Member

Closes: No Date
ByWater Solutions
Anywhere/Telecommute

We are looking for someone who can deliver a comprehensive training experience to new ByWater library partners in a new and exciting way without lecturing.  Someone who is flexible and can “roll with it” (think internet crashing in the middle of your training or system down right after StoryTime lets out).  Someone who has an arsenal of change management skills in their pocket.  Someone who can get to the heart of the question by using your mad reference interview skills.  The successful candidate will also be providing ongoing support of Koha to libraries through troubleshooting and analyzing workflow issues and possible solutions. This position requires an outgoing, confident individual with excellent verbal and written communication skills.
