A key measure of success in this mission is to develop an engaged customer base that loves to use and refer our products to others. Our product training plays a vital role in ensuring team readiness by making sure anyone supporting or selling Rachio has a thorough knowledge of product specifications, technical troubleshooting steps, organization history, and company procedures to provide the best customer service and experience possible.

We're looking for people with excellent analytical and communication skills who are passionate about the consumer and helping them get the most out of Rachio.

As a Training Manager, you will be responsible for analyzing, designing, and developing high quality training content for technical and non-technical learning programs.

  • Perform frequent gap analysis and needs assessments through surveys, knowledge checks, and focus groups to implement timely programs and courses based on feedback.

  • Coordinate with the QA Manager on the development, delivery, and ongoing maintenance of all training materials.

  • Work with the Sales and Partner Teams to provide training proposals for customers and partners.

  • Work closely with Certified Rachio Pros (CRPs) to determine training requirements as well as build detailed training proposals and plans to accelerate adoption of Rachio products and services.

  • Travel to call centers and partner facilities will be required; expect heavy travel (3-4 days/week) during the winter, spring, and summer months.
