Instructor - Information & Cyber Security (Location - Remote)

Your role

As an Instructor with Infosec, you’ll have the opportunity to share your real life experience with the Information Security and Information Technology world. You’ll be an influencer, motivator, and thought leader in the industry. We encourage our instructors to constantly expand their skillsets through our own certification courses (usually on the house!), helping you reach your professional and technical goals.

You have a commanding presence and are able to manage a classroom easily. You’re not just interested in a job, you have a passion for your craft and understand that sharing knowledge is one of the most important things you can do. You also know that excellent communication skills are imperative in any position and you get a thrill from presenting to others. You’ve probably sat through a boring certification class and thought about all the ways you’d rather have learned the material. Take those ideas and implement them at Infosec; we understand that engagement is just as important as the material. Our team of instructors are friendly, determined people who love what they do and have fun doing it!

You’ll be the face of Infosec and part of our growing team of full time instructors. Our instructors teach about thirty-five weeks out of the year, and spend time working from home, creating course material. You’ll be delivering classes both online and in person as well as giving your expertise to aid our content creation team. Your mission is to educate our students with all your worldly knowledge and prepare them for the respective certification exam.
