What a year it’s been! JobAdder has grown leaps and bounds since our expansion in April 2014.

This week our team welcomed Ryan Shiba, Learning and Development Manager. In this new role, Ryan will help expand and update the extensive training materials available to clients through new, engaging interactive tools. Over the past few months, JobAdder has introduced a host of product updates that enhance the current design and functionality of JobAdder. Ryan’s role will assist in developing training material that highlights the latest JobAdder updates as well as providing state of the art online training resources for all users.

“Learning and Development is an important role for JobAdder. As we continue to grow, the importance of having the resources for clients to better understand how they can simplify the recruitment process in JobAdder has grown. Ryan’s role takes JobAdder further down the path of achieving our goals of 24 x 7 customer support and continuous, state of the art online learning.”

A bit about Ryan:

Ryan’s background includes degrees in psychology, sociology, and education. Starting his career in 2006, Ryan has spent a majority of his career in higher education, most recently at the University of Denver. Ryan’s wide ranging experience in learning and development and his passion for online user experience made him the ideal candidate for this role.

A few fun facts about Ryan:

Outside of work, Ryan enjoys training and competing in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and submission grappling.
Ryan was born in Kaua’i and moved to Colorado in 2000 for college.
While playing football in college, Ryan scored a touchdown every time he touched the ball (granted it was only once) and takes pride knowing that no one will ever have a higher scoring percentage.
