Mission: Very simply nCino's mission is to transform the financial services industry through innovation, reputation and speed. To achieve that requires creating a special company culture based on six goals:
- Make Someone Else’s ...
I have been working at nCino full-time (More than a year)
-Incredible work/life balance.
-You are treated like an adult. You are trusted. So there's no clocking in and out, or hour tracking (at least, in PD&E). As long as you get your work done, you can come and go as you please. However, because you work hard, you don't take advantage of it. It's genius.
-Supportive, friendly, fun co-workers who work hard and play hard.
-Incredible benefits (HSA account with money in it from company, incredible insurance coverage for you and your spouse).
-If you show you are willing to learn something new, it goes a long, long way.
-If you want something to happen, you make it happen. And you are supported in doing so.
-Amazing social activities (great annual holiday party, excellent company events that build morale and inclusion. You feel like you are truly part of something great).
-Because it's a start-up, there are growing pains here that you won't feel elsewhere (for example, process mishaps-- or lack thereof--but that's also part of why it's very liberating to work here). Sometimes you feel like you are riding a rollercoaster. But you're in good hands.
-Sometimes, there are too many cooks in the kitchen here, which can get annoying.
-We are paid incredibly well for this region, and this city (this is one of the most coveted companies to work for not only in Wilmington, but in North Carolina), but relative to similar positions at Silicon Valley software companies, we are paid less than industry standard.
Advice to Management
Please carve out time to make sure employees have a clear vision of how they can grow and get promoted. It's not often clear.
I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at nCino (Wilmington, NC) in October 2016.
Pretty standard interview, they asked your typical behavior question with some small technical questions. If you have any background with programming, it is not hard to land the position so long as you have a fun personality. The company is very inviting and they offer you food and beverages to help ease any nerves you have before your interview.
