What We Do

Credential Engine provides a suite of web-based services that creates for the first time a Credential Registry to house up-to-date information about all credentials and skills, a common description language to enable credential comparability, and a platform to support customized applications to search and retrieve information about credentials. 

Credential Engine currently works with a growing number of states, institutions, federal agencies, data partners, and global partners to support their efforts to make essential data about credentials and competencies open, transparent, and linked in order to better serve learners, workers, employers, and others. Credential Engine partners with national and state organizations with expertise in workforce, education and data advocacy, technical assistance organizations, employer and labor associations, and others to support policies that make credential transparency an enduring value in the marketplace.

  • Create and deliver engaging and effective learning experiences for both staff and external partners, aligned with Credential Engine’s goals and objectives.
  • Organize, create content for, and host webinars to educate internal and external stakeholders on best practices and procedures for publishing in the Credential Registry.
  • Take responsibility for the content development and maintenance of the Credential Registry Guidance website, ensuring that information is accurate, up-to-date, and user-friendly.
  • This position may also support and lead the development, design, and implementation of a certificate or certification program focused on training individuals in the utilization of CTDL (Credential Transparency Description Language) in collaboration with the technical team, by crafting curriculum and learning materials for the certificate program, incorporating industry best practices and real-world scenarios.
  • Other duties as assigned.

Qualifications

  • Proven experience in leading a team focused on both internal and external customer support and technical assistance.
  • Ability to diagnose problems quickly and foresee potential issues.
  • Proficiency in creating guidance materials in various formats, including webpages, videos, and PDFs.
  • Ability to collaborate with technical teams and translate complex concepts into accessible instructional materials for our technical and non-technical stakeholders.
  • Must exemplify flexibility and the ability to work both independently and collaboratively; prioritize, manage, and appropriately delegate multiple projects.
  • Operating style suited to working in a small team and remote environment where teamwork, creativity, and flexibility are valued.
  • Experience and proven ability to quickly learn and understand Credential Engine technologies and other tools and utilize them for primarily web-based delivery of materials and instructions for a professional adult audience.

  • Excellent organizational, communication (written and verbal), and interpersonal skills.
  • Familiarity with the Credential Transparency Description Language (CTDL) or similar standards is a definite plus.

Work Environment and Physical Demands
