Are you a code wizzard? Do you wake up every day with new development ideas? Do you like to work for an award winning global platform? Than you are our ideal candidate!


We are Nimbles, nice to meet you! We are a brand, concept and online platform that makes private tutoring more accessible and affordable for everyone.

Our team is young, ambitious, enthusiastic and professional. We have partnerships with Microsoft, TomTom and a friend of mine (yes, they are also friends of us, but it's the name of one of the fastest growing digital agencies in the Netherlands). Together with them we’re building on being the next “success story” tech startup!

'Are you an experienced developer that wants to join our rollercoaster ride through startup land?' 


Since we will be building out our existing team together with you, we need a medior/senior backend developer who is self-reliant, professional, international focussed and has a good sense of SaaS platforms. You’ll work closely together with our founders Danique and Adine, think of new features for the platform and make them work together with a small team of designers and developers.

We love to work and experiment with the latest web techniques like React, Laravel 5 and create our own RESTful API’s. You will build on an accessible API interface and design the database structure of the CMS or payment system. The ideal developer would have experience with all disciplines, but we are also open to more back end focussed candidates.

Besides the regular workload for Nimbles we also perform a lot of technical research to grow our technical knowledge and create the best User Experience. To deliver features on time, we work with Agile methods such as Scrum and Kanban.


You have (or willing to learn):

  • Knowledge of the back end language PHP5+
  • Knowledge of MySQL
  • Knowledge of PHP MVC frameworks like Laravel 5
  • Knowledge of JavaScript frameworks like React
  • Experience with Object Orientated Programming
  • You know your way in Photoshop
  • An eye for perfection and details
  • The ambition to grow

In short: Do you aim for the perfect customer experience and do you like to think beyond the horizon considering online possibilities? Do you recognize the abilities below and do you share our passion for developing for the (mobile) web? Than you are the perfect candidate for a Nimbles.


A diverse and challenging job with lots of freedom and space for personal initiative and growth. An inspiring workplace in the centre of Amsterdam with a social and informal atmosphere. Needless to say, we offer a salary that is in line with the market, including a business laptop, travel allowance and good secondary working conditions. And, as a bonus: every day the joy of healthy juices and lunch!
