Grow with the team
Because technology continuously evolves, continuous learning and improvement are crucial to working at Nimble. Individual growth is a significant foundation for the team’s structure and function.
The company invests heavily in the growth of its individuals, as it is the key to its success. From the team organization to the employee benefits, individual growth is central to the company’s strategy.
Each business area has specific needs, thus requiring specifically devised strategies to grow the team members.
Each teammate has a clearly-defined role when joining the company. This clear definition makes knowing each member’s responsibilities and boundaries easy, allowing the team to work efficiently at scale.
At the same time, roles are not set in stone. The company ensures that every teammate can move fluidly between roles. The most common transitions are:
From an Individual Contributor to a Lead role
This transition usually occurs when the team member has shown the ability to lead a team and has the desire to do so, e.g., from Developer to Team Lead, from Developer to Engineering Lead, from Product Manager to Lead Product Manager, from UX/UI Designer to Lead UX/UI Designer, etc.
From one expertise area to another
This transition usually occurs when the team member has shown the ability to learn a new expertise area and has the desire to do so, e.g., from Android Development to iOS Development, from iOS Development to Web Development with Ruby on Rails, from Web Development with Elixir to Android Development, etc.
From one business area to another
This transition usually occurs when the team member has shown the ability to learn a new business area and has the desire to do so, e.g., from Engineering to Product, from Product to Sales, etc.
Such transitions are built-in the company’s strategy. To make them happen, in addition to providing transition opportunities, the team built specific processes to fasten and guarantee the team members’ successful transition.
