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’s dedicated Government Security and Infrastructure Engineering team provides the underlying cloud  infrastructure for the Government Services product teams. They are responsible for creating and maintaining  the continuous integration/continuous deployment (CI/CD) pipelines for our government services projects. They ensure that our engineers and data scientists are empowered and effective by providing them with safe prototyping environments, review tooling/CI, and security engineering support. The goal is to bring the government projects ever closer to continuous deployment ideals while ensuring the developer team is well supported, productive and largely able to self-serve for most of their needs. The team thrives in an agile, creative, and collaborative engineering environment.

You will inspire, lead, and grow the team, collaborating with the Government Services product teams, our contracting partners, and representatives from the Federal Government to build systems that enable data scientists, analysts, and policymakers to understand healthcare data while ensuring its integrity, resiliency, security, and privacy. This work is critical to our mission of making quality healthcare more affordable and accessible to everyone.
