Careers

Teddy Kids is a family owned and operated international daycare with four locations in the Leiden and The Hague area. Our goals are simple; providing the best possible care and education for kids from all over the world who live in or near this beautiful city, and prepare them for life in the Netherlands and abroad. We are internationally focused, so we provide excellent bilingual education and aim to bridge the divide between cultures and backgrounds.

Technologies we use

We use Ruby on Rails, Postgres, Redis, Ubuntu, jQuery, Sass and more to build Teddy Kids.
Something not on the list but absolutely should be? Apply now and help us put it in place.

  • Requirements

    • Top-notch programming skills and a track record of getting stuff done
    • Advanced skills in some server-side web development stack (e.g. Rails, ASP.NET, Django, etc). Experience in our stack (Rails) is a plus, but not a requirement.
    • Up-to-date, in-depth knowledge of modern HTML, CSS and JS
    • A strong desire to learn and use the right tools for the job
    • You’re interested in working for a startup. This isn’t your typical 9 to 5 desk job. Each day brings new challenges — and it’s a fun ride.
    • You live in (or are willing to move to) Omaha and work at our downtown office
  • Bonus points

    • You understand the basics of cloud systems: Linux, security, Amazon EC2, HTTP and RESTful Web services
    • You have open source contributions and/or side projects you’re really proud of
    • You enjoy writing, and can speak and write in terms that non-geeks can understand clearly

At the end of the day, we’re looking for smart, team-oriented people who can get things done. We care less about experience and education, and more about a demonstrable passion for great software engineering and web technologies.

In addition to all these great benefits, we also offer 12 weeks fully-paid maternity leave (and 8 weeks paid paternity leave!), dog friendly office, flexible work schedule, travel opportunities, and an annual company retreat along with paid downtown parking. We look forward to continuing to grow our benefits package as we grow.
