Job Description

We are:

Root sits within the Talent and Organization practice, and we help clients realize positive strategy and culture change. We activate, motivate, and inspire people to accelerate the speed of change through a combination of disruptive methods, storytelling, and interactive experiences. Root’s expertise in customer experience, strategy activation, maximizing operations, technology adoption and unlocking talent is backed by proven research and evolved over 25 years.

You are:

A client fanatic. You have a passion for collaborating, creating, and innovating. You enjoy working with extremely talented left-brained and right-brained people to create meaningful experiences.

The work:

A Root Senior Learning Designer will:

  • Learn cool content from a client’s Subject Matter Expert and shape it into a learning experience: We work closely with clients to learn everything about their business and get the right content to enable their learners to thrive. It’s also pretty darn interesting to learn what happens behind the scenes at Fortune 500 companies and then translate that to something others will understand.
  • Design engaging materials from the client’s content: This is where you put your heart and soul—drafting engaging and enjoyable curricula that include solutions in multiple types of media—web, film, and print. Strong writing, communication, and storytelling skills are a must, as is a deep knowledge of different methods of delivery.
  • Lead and collaborate with awesomely talented people: Depending on the type of project you’re on, you could lead other learning designers, a team of artists, quality assurance specialists, programmers, conceptors, or graphic designers—the people in these functions are experts at what they do, and it’s part of your role to bring them all together and deliver world-class work.
  • Travel to interesting places to test what you’ve built with end users: As the chief advocate for the end user, nothing beats that moment when you get to see how your work measures up. Sometimes we do this virtually. Sometimes we jump on a plane and meet our users face to face.
  • Rewrite something that they worked really hard at: We value collaboration with our clients. This may mean writing a second or third draft of something you thought was perfect. It’s not always easy, but when you develop a final product together it is rewarding.
  • Build a relationship with a client and grow our business: Contribute to account growth by driving program development and building relationships with project sponsors while leveraging your ability to understand and digest complex concepts and translate them into easy-to-understand learning points.
  • Develop others: Help spread your passion for learning by coaching others—both formal reports and informal working relationships.


For now, all Accenture business travel, international and domestic, is currently restricted to client-essential sales/delivery activity only.

Please note: The safety and well-being of our people continues to be the top priority, and our decisions around travel are informed by government COVID-19 response directives, recommendations from leading health authorities and guidance from a number of infectious disease experts.
