Nimble is a modern-era career support network founded and led by Armagan Amcalar. Nimble offers a wide range of services to individuals and companies in tech, helping them achieve their goals in a systematic, refreshing way.
Software industry is shaping the world. The future is being created by thousands of bright minds who are mesmerized by the impact they could have on the world. Companies compete to be the next unicorn. And they all employ engineers. They sign more and more engineers in an attempt to improve the overall output, and this creates an ever-growing stress on individuals to deliver.
The practice of software engineering is in its infancy compared to more established fields. Individuals suffer from the lack of understanding of best practices to ensure timely success. There are not enough leaders and managers, and most senior engineers are "promoted" into management without adequate experience. They get this experience on the expense of costly mistakes.
Nimble brings in a vast pool of experience to guide engineers, managers, and companies in their struggles with productivity, career paths, and growth. No one should have to learn by repeating the costly mistakes everyone else did. Nimble is formed out of a necessity to balance this, by sharing valuable experience and insights.
