The team behind

the EdTech

At Nimbus Learning, we believe in preserving the human element when using technology.

So we’d like to introduce ourselves – the team behind the edtech.

We work pretty well as a team. Together we’ve memorized the office snack schedule, perfected the art of making mocha coffees and have killer Zoom background game. There is currently an office pool on how many articles of Nimbus branded clothing Will has – if you’d like to get in on the action make sure to get in touch.

They'll give us feedback because they work really closely with our customer support. So whenever there's a bug or there's anything that the users don't like we get the feedback and we'll have a meeting about it and go through all the bugs … depending on what feed-backs we get we'll pump out different features”.
