Job Description

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’s product offerings enable delivery of value-based care contracts, at scale across the United States. Value-based healthcare aims to shift reimbursement from fee-for-service to fee-for-value where providers are incentivized to deliver higher quality care to their patients at a lower cost. It is incredibly difficult to operationalize value-based arrangements due to the variability in both contract configurations and measurement of health outcomes. The Value Platform teams are creating a scalable platform to accurately and efficiently implement complex value-based care programs. 


In this role, you will:

  • Build products that change the dynamics and incentives of the healthcare industry, changing a zero-sum game of competition between payers and providers into patient-centered collaboration
  • Form deep partnerships with a cross-functional team of analysts, engineers and product managers
  • Manage our high stakes production environment, ensuring high availability/low latency and protecting our sensitive data with rigorous security
  • Play a significant leadership role to influence Nuna’s product strategy
  • Work as part of a team, not in a silo - at Nuna, we rise by lifting others!


Required Qualifications

  • 8+ years of software engineering experience
  • Demonstrated success leading a team’s technical vision and driving large cross-team initiatives
  • Eagerness to dive deep and become a healthcare data expert
  • Experience building production-hardened data platforms, with consideration for performance, scalability, reliability, and repeatability
  • Experience rapidly prototyping new product concepts, especially for enterprise clients
  • Knowledge of database fundamentals like indexing and SQL queries
  • Experience managing production services and designing smooth deployment processes, ideally in AWS
  • Strong oral and written communication skills, keen attention to detail and deadline driven

Preferred Qualifications

  • Domain experience working with healthcare data paired with a passion to connect with, understand, and shape the healthcare industry
  • Experience with Hadoop and Spark
  • Familiarity with orchestration tools like Airflow or Prefect

Technologies used at Nuna

  • Python, Scala, SQL, testing tools (e.g. pytest), build tools (Bazel, poetry)
  • Spark, Prefect, JupyterHub, Kubernetes
  • Linux, OS X 
  • AWS ECS, RDS, IAM, Lambda; Hashicorp Terraform and Vault

We take into account an individual’s qualifications, skillset, and experience in determining final salary. This role is eligible for health insurance, life insurance, retirement benefits, participation in the company’s equity program, paid time off, including vacation and sick leave. The expected salary range for this position is $165,000 to $230,000. The actual offer will be at the company’s sole discretion and determined by relevant business considerations, including the final candidate’s qualifications, years of experience, and skillset.
