I am looking for a new co-worker! Come be an Accessibility Strategist with me at Blackboard<https://nam10.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fapp.jobvite.com%2Fm%3F37fpYmwA&data=04%7C01%7Cshaun.hegney%40sfcc.spokane.edu%7C4fb3070109f94b756df008d961b085c9%7C4dedfefa6bd04442a06c98aed0b4b8da%7C1%7C1%7C637648233062866311%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C2000&sdata=RrU63m9cHgtdCJLsFKszlhZGD%2BU1oMhmiymxrJV4qLg%3D&reserved=0> (aka Strategic Consultant). It's an awesome job, working with colleges and universities all over the world regarding their systemic accessibility issues. We tend to use Blackboard Ally as a catalyst for our work but get to do any type of consulting service that is around accessibility.


* Pro #1 - we report to one of the BEST managers ever. For example, he had no prior accessibility experience but has learned to remediate documents to truly understand this work. Very organized, extremely supportive, and super fun!
* Pro #2 - it pays more than most higher education document accessibility / media specialist roles.
* Pro #3 - it was remote before COVID and will stay remote. It does require travel but frankly the amount of travel is dependent upon clients interested in us coming onsite.
* Pro #4 - it's a wonderful combo of working with people and tech. You get the best of both!

Sadly, due to reasons I don't fully understand, we are unable to accept applicants from California, Colorado or Massachusetts.

Additional Info

* Previous accessibility experience is required. Consulting experience is not.
* Most interested in applicants to support clients on the West Coast (but you don't have to live there, just be willing to work more of those hours than East Coast hours).
* Previous experience with Blackboard Ally is a plus but not a requirement.
* I'm happy to chat with serious applicants.
