About Nuna

Nuna is a healthcare technology company. It offers data-driven products and services to power payment arrangements and facilitate healthcare delivery. The company partners with government, employers, and health plans.

Job Description

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 employers, to turn data into learnings and information into meaning.


Nuna’s products are built to help deliver value-based care, at scale, across the United States healthcare system. Value-based healthcare is a delivery model where providers are paid based on patient health outcomes, instead of traditional fee for service arrangements, driving delivery of higher quality care for patients at lower cost. Today, value-based care is incredibly difficult to operationalize so we’re making it easier with products that enable automated, accurate, and transparent operation of value-based payments.

Nuna’s Customer Solutions team is a forward-deployed, customer-focused team dedicated to the efficient delivery of our Value-Based Payment suite to customers. Nuna’s Customer Solutions team is the public face of Nuna: You’ll work and collaborate with customers on a daily basis and seek to win their confidence and satisfaction as we implement our products.

Program managers at Nuna are the primary day-to-day customer-facing point of contact leading client implementation programs. You will work closely with the customer to plan and govern Nuna product implementations, and partner with teams throughout Nuna to deliver major programs and concrete results that help customers achieve business objectives, and Nuna grow and thrive. 


In this role you’ll lead a cross-functional team of Value-Based Payment data experts, engineers, product managers, and support teams to adapt and configure Nuna’s products towards the delivery of accurate and scalable value-based payment solutions. Along the way, you’ll lead your team to help customers understand what key capabilities our products provide, how to implement and migrate their existing processes to our products, and to identify ways to leverage our product technology to deliver measurable business value.

Program managers ensure that there is clarity of purpose and direction around which teams and individuals can organize and execute. In addition, program managers guide teams toward effective execution by watching for and addressing organizational weaknesses and gaps as needed. Program managers aim to bring the right amount of process and persistence to ensure projects run smoothly, people do their best work, and good communication is happening both within and across teams. 

We're looking for an individual with program and project management experience who can learn quickly, build consensus, and help teams do their best work!
