At Nuna, our mission is to make high-quality healthcare affordable for everyone. We are dedicated to tackling one of our nation’s biggest problems with ingenuity, creativity, and a keen moral compass.

Nuna is committed to simple principles: a rigorous understanding of data, modern technology, and most importantly, compassion and care for our fellow human. We want to know what really works, what doesn't—and why.

Nuna partners with healthcare payers, including government agencies and health plans, to turn data into learnings and information into meaning.

YOUR TEAM

At Nuna Engineering, we build so that everyone can use, learn, and act. Our technology enables data scientists, analysts, benefits officers, and policymakers to understand healthcare data while ensuring its integrity, security and privacy. Our work runs the gamut, from joining multiple streams of messy real-world data to building queryable data warehouses to constructing visualizations and dashboards that provide actionable insight. We build systems that are auditable, as automated as possible, accurately represent the underlying data, and, perhaps most importantly, responsive to our end users' needs. We strive for a creative, collaborative engineering environment that implements standard methodologies for peer review, readability, maintainability, and security of the code base and infrastructure.

YOUR IMPACT

The Government Services team is responsible for expanding upon our existing work with federally funded healthcare programs (like Medicare, Medicaid, Veteran’s Administration, etc). This work is critical to our mission of making healthcare more accessible and valuable to all people. The team works with detailed data at a massive scale to enable analysis and insights to be derived from processing.

The Nuna product engineering team is a diverse organization of engineers who are concerned about the different layers that make up our stack: ingestion tools, pipeline orchestration, data storage, and web front ends. The product is both an analysis pipeline and the integrations and tools that allow for many different users to have meaningful access and derive insights from the data that we have processed and made available.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.

How do I know if I have a disability?
