At Nuna, our mission is to make high-quality healthcare affordable and accessible 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, health plans, and employers, to turn data into learnings and information into meaning.

YOUR TEAM

Nuna’s Meaningful Matches product strives to improve cost, quality, and patient satisfaction by guiding patients to the right primary care physician (PCP) for their healthcare and access needs. 

To do this, we’ve built a data processing pipeline that combines the state of the art in provider performance measurement with machine learning and optimization. We serve our match recommendations to customers via API endpoints that they can seamlessly integrate with their existing tech, allowing us to positively impact the lives of hundreds of thousands of patients at a time. 

YOUR IMPACT

You will join a growing cross-functional team focused on scaling and building out new product features and deploying them to new customers. You will partner with Product, Engineering, Design and Account Management across the full product lifecycle.   

You will have an opportunity to improve our patient-PCP matching product by developing algorithms for new types of matching, enhancing our ability to predict provider performance for different types of patients, and conducting rigorous statistical analysis to measure how well our product works

YOUR OPPORTUNITIES

  • Work with Product to identify and understand customer’s needs and objectives in implementing Meaningful Matches, and patients’ needs around accessing care 
  • Design new algorithmic features to address those needs using administrative and other data sources
  • Collaborate with engineering to develop new product interfaces and dashboards that will help to streamline your work and the deployment process
  • Collaborate with other Data Scientists to estimate the improvements in health outcomes that customers can expect from implementing our product, and present those findings to the customer
  • Solicit, interpret, and document customer business requirements and help customer come to algorithmic configuration decisions

  • Bachelor’s degree or above in quantitative or engineering fields (Statistics, Economics, Mathematics, Health/Medical Informatics, Computer Science, or similar)
  • 3+ years of experience with healthcare and health data
  • Passion to connect with, understand, and shape the healthcare industry

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had a disability. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past.
