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 self-insured employers, to turn data into learnings and information into meaning.

Nuna’s Business Intelligence team is squarely aimed at shortening the distance between healthcare data and the “now what?” We build robust and scalable solutions that make it easy to derive insights from data, using comprehensive analytic front-ends and dashboards. We work hand-in-hand with our client partners and engineering teams, collaborating to help deliver products to our clients that have a positive impact on the way that healthcare works. Our mission is to transform healthcare data into meaningful action.

As a Business Intelligence Engineer, you will be responsible for turning data analytics into shipping products by developing front-end dashboards and views that make that data meaningful and actionable to users. You will take data tables designed for domain-expert analysts and turn them into point and click explorable insights for a wide variety of users, significantly increasing the data’s impact.
