At Nimble, we empower K-12 schools with AI-driven tools to identify and hire outstanding talent for their classrooms. Every student deserves access to amazing teachers — so we're leveraging cutting-edge technology to help school districts recruit and hire the best.

Active Roles

Why join us?

  • We're a world positive company using cutting-edge tech (AI/ML) to help schools recruit and hire great teachers.

  • Nimble was incubated at Stanford University, is backed by Y Combinator, and was recently recognized by the US Department of Education as a leading edtech innovator.

  • We're on track to triple ARR this year, are already profitable, and just had our first statewide deal (meaning that a state purchased Nimble as the go-to K-12 recruiting platform for all of its school districts).


Engineering at Nimble

Engineering team and processes

We plan our roadmap in 6 month increments based on ongoing customer feedback and user research. We have monthly sprint planning and retrospective sessions as well as a daily standup. We have code reviews, unit testing, and a rigorous quality assurance process. Since we're a small company, the engineering team is very flat; each engineer takes a high level of ownership and must be a strong communicator.

Technical Challenges

Our most interesting technical question is how to leverage ML to predict who is likely to be a highly effective teacher and be retained in classrooms over time. We're already employing live AI assistance using data from candidate resumes, and we are experimenting with novel data analysis techniques on an ongoing basis.

Aside from the ML component, questions of scalability, security and how to maintain delightful and simple UX while ensuring the app is customizable enough to meet the needs of enterprise customers are our biggest challenges.

Projects you might work on
  • Leverage resume parsing to streamline the applicant experience while ensuring data is structured in such a way that the AI can properly categorize work experience relevance and reasons for leaving prior roles, in order to apply predictions about teacher quality.

  • Refactor Nimble data dashboards to add caching in a way that balances realtime accuracy with the need for enterprise customers to access insights quickly.

  • Develop user friendly, well-tested integrations with other HR and recruiting tools such as Indeed, ZipRecruiter, Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin to ensure that client districts are sourcing as many candidates as possible.

Working at Nimble

We're a tight-knit, high-impact team striving for outstanding results. We strive to be an inclusive and anti-racist organization. We act deliberately and quickly. Since we serve an under-resourced industry, we need to be ruthlessly efficient with our time and work harder and smarter than your average startup. We're solutions-oriented, with minimal hierarchy. As a distributed team, we value consistent and open communication. We strive to improve personally and professionally by asking ourselves (and others) what we can do better.

Diversity and Inclusion

We are a female-led organization and 50% of our team identifies as female. 25% of our organization identifies as non-white. We aim to maintain these numbers as an organization and within our technical team.

Nimble strives to be an inclusive and anti-racist organization. We embody this goal both through our direct mission to help schools conduct rigorous and equitable hiring processes, but also through our daily actions and culture.

We have a structured interview process to ensure that all candidates are treated fairly. We also have a transparent salary scale, to ensure equal pay for equal work.

At each of our company retreats, we have content dedicated to inclusion, anti-racism, and delivering/receiving candid feedback from teammates.
