I have been working at Nuna full-time (More than 3 years)
I have worked closely with Nuna Leadership for the past five years in an administrative/operations capacity. The wonderful thing about working at startups, and at Nuna in particular, is all the opportunities to step up to the plate, get involved, and show the great work you can do. I’ve had the opportunity to pitch in and learn about so many things that are above and beyond the day-to-day administrative scope, which is a definite career builder! At no other company, or role, that I’ve had in my 20 plus years administrative career have I felt my voice was as heard as it is at Nuna, nor have I felt that I was able to have as much of a positive impact as I have at Nuna. Administrative professionals at Nuna are respected and able to have great positive impact company-wide.
At one of my past administrative roles, the manager of the administrative team would refer to the team as, “her girls” which, as an adult woman of the age where I could have adult children, always made me cringe. In that role, at the team meetings led by our manager, conversations were focused around what diet worked, or where to get your nails done, rather than business updates, discussions about new productivity tools, or new processes. I feel none of that attitude at Nuna. At Nuna, we are respected professionals who are experts in our field and are treated as such.
In the United States, we spend trillions of dollars every year on healthcare. Nuna is developing tools that will help plans and providers succeed in value-based payment arrangements and change the way healthcare is paid for. I’m proud to be working for a woman-led company that is taking on this challenging work.
It took a while to find product/market fit. Now that we've accomplished this we are off to the races!
Advice to Management
Continue to treat administrative roles as partners and professionals as the company grows/scales.
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Nuna (San Francisco, CA) in August 2018.
Recruiting team reached out after my application to do the initial screen and later setup the first call with the Engineering Manager. I was unable to make this interview due to being oncall but they were very understanding of the situation and was able to get it rescheduled.
Had amazing conversations with both direct supervisors/managers for the role. The questions were very clear and well thought out. Next, invited for a half day on-site interview. Travel accommodations were great and even had a really good meal per diem.
The on-site interview included a programming challenge as well as architecture / design interviews with a team lunch in between. The interviews were definitely challenging but we're very close to real situations.
Received and accepted an offer a few days later. Overall a 5 star experience, one of the best recruitment processes I have been through!
