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 humans. We want to know what really works, what doesn't—and why.

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

Join the Nuna Infrastructure Engineering team to be part of the solution to U.S. healthcare! Nuna’s Infrastructure Engineering team builds systems so that everyone can use, learn, and act. We architect and implement the underpinnings of the technology that enables data scientists, analysts, benefits officers, and policymakers to understand healthcare data while ensuring its integrity, security, and privacy.

Infrastructure Engineering covers not only the automation, configuration, and deployment of our continuous integration/continuous deployment (CI/CD) pipeline, but also ensures that our engineers and data scientists are empowered and effective by providing them with tools, test automation, and design expertise. We aspire to build systems that are resilient, automated, auditable, and responsive to our 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.

Skills and responsibilities

As a Senior Infrastructure Engineer supporting our government product, you will work closely with our security team, representatives from the federal government, and infrastructure engineers from other government contractors to build the next generation, infrastructure as code, CI/CD pipeline for our data analysis and analytics toolsets. As part of this role, you will:

  • Lead from a technical architectural and project management perspective, and shepherd technical decisions to completion.
  • Support the existing infrastructure for our production servers and data analysis pipelines and analytics toolsets.
  • Evaluate our existing systems, and choose tools and develop software that follow government and industry best practices.
  • Work with government representatives to obtain exceptions to the FedRAMP Authorized Products list, enabling us to experiment with technology/tools that benefit the project but have not yet been authorized for general government use.
  • Design and implement robust, secure, abstracted systems that allow developers to simply and safely test speculative product changes using production-quality data.
  • Provide metrics that allow us to identify areas for improvement and measure change.
  • Ensure that our deployments are automated, frequent, secure, and without noticeable user impact.

Exceeding Expectations:

  • Work with our commercial Infrastructure Engineering team to establish cross-product standard methodologies for infrastructure engineering throughout the organization.
