Job description

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, health plans, and employers, to turn data into learnings and information into meaning.

We are responsible for the scalable comprehension, ingestion, cleaning, and deploying of client data on schedule - think of us as the heart muscle that pumps data throughout Nuna. And because quality and consistency are our hallmarks, we’re more than a little obsessed with detail and process.
