Customer Success Specialist

About Nimble

Nimble is on a mission to ensure that all students, regardless of background, have access to excellent teachers. We build AI-driven tools to help schools recruit and hire top talent. Our core product is a K-12 recruitment & hiring tool with embedded AI assistance that helps K-12 hiring managers identify the educators most likely to drive student learning and be retained in classrooms. Since launching in 2017, we have grown to serve some of the largest school districts nationwide, helping staff classrooms for millions of students annually.

We strive to promote inclusion and equity, both in our mission and in our day-to-day workplace culture. While we are highly ambitious, we prioritize work-life balance, flexibility and employee retention. We're a distributed team, which means you can work from anywhere on a flexible schedule.

Why Nimble

In our first three years, Nimble has developed and brought to market an impactful, research-based product that helps schools identify and hire outstanding classroom talent. One hundred percent of customers say our service and support is better or much better than that of other companies they’ve worked with in the past. As our customer base grows, it’s critical that we continue to deliver the highest quality support. This role is a unique opportunity to:

  • Work with hundreds of school districts and hundreds of thousands of users across the Unites States, ensuring an outstanding Nimble experience
  • Stretch your strategic and technical skills as an early Customer Success hire within a fast-growing early-stage startup building a technically complex, AI-enabled product
  • Learn and grow quickly, with the potential to move into an account management role
  • Contribute to a mission-driven organization that’s more than tripling revenue annually, has been recognized by the US Department of Education as a leading innovator in the space, and has a direct opportunity to ensure that all students have access to outstanding teachers
  • Join a tight-knit, collaborative team that values sustainability, diversity, equity, and inclusion

Our culture

We're a high-impact team striving for outstanding results:

  • Equity: We strive to be an inclusive and anti-racist organization. We embody this goal both through our direct work to help schools conduct rigorous and equitable hiring processes, but also through our daily actions and culture.
  • Excellence: We're bringing cutting-edge technology to an under-resourced industry. To give our customers the best, we need to be ruthlessly efficient with our time and work harder and smarter than your average startup.
  • Speed: We act deliberately and quickly. While we have high standards, we value results over perfection. We're driven by our mission to ensure all students have access to outstanding teachers. We work toward that mission with urgency.
  • Ownership: We're problem solvers who take ownership over outcomes and consistently follow through on commitments. We're solutions-oriented, with minimal hierarchy.
  • Communication: As a distributed team, we value consistent and open communication. We offer ideas and welcome debate. We trust each other, ask for help when we need it and give honest feedback.
  • Growth: We strive to improve personally and professionally by asking ourselves what we can do better. The goal isn't perfection, but constant improvement.


Startup hustle, with added flexibility:

  • Work from anywhere: As long as you put in the work, you can do it from anywhere on a flexible schedule.
  • Competitive compensation: It doesn't hurt to get paid well while you're changing the world, right?
  • Unlimited vacation & flexible parental leave: We work hard, but work isn't everything.
  • Medical, dental, retirement: For US-based teammates, we offer benefits like medical, dental and 401K.
  • Annual retreat: Like to travel? We do too. Each year we come together in a fun location to get to know each other better.
