Why join Vimbly?

Vimbly Technologies is a funded and profitable web 2.0 startup looking for a highly motivated, hard-hitting PHP developer to join the team.  Vimbly Technologies is a fast-paced company focused on creating custom best-in-class, high-performance solutions for enterprises spanning a variety of industries.  At Vimbly, you’ll work side-by-side with proven talent, creative intelligence, and smiley faces (with firm but non-painful handshakes) -- out of our office in the best city in the world, right across from the Empire State Building. Your work will have a direct and meaningful impact on the product. We aren't looking for another cog in the wheel. You will be given significant responsibility and independence. You will be challenged.

Candidates able to join our team on-site in our office in Midtown Manhattan are highly preferred, but consideration for remote work will be given to exceptional candidates.  Please indicate your location on your application; applications without a location will be ignored.
