Series A

For too long, the insurance industry has been stuck on dated, custom-coded files, paper processes, and other legacy tech. Noyo is creating the building blocks for modern, dynamic benefits experiences, and new tooling to improve accuracy and transparency when managing insurance data.

 Everything we engineer is built with scalability and flexibility in mind–we’re bringing the age of connected insurance to everyone.

Engineering at Noyo

Engineering team and processes

We believe in a close relationship between product and engineering. Within our larger engineering team, we are organized into smaller product/engineering teams that are comprised of a product manager along with a number of engineers (and sometimes a UI/UX designer as needed). These smaller teams mean that engineers and product work very closely with each other throughout the whole product development lifecycle. Engineers are involved in the process from the point of ideation through product design, technical design, scoping, phasing, and launch.

We don’t have a separate QA team – engineers and product managers work together to build a testing and rollout plan for each launch. That plan often includes a combination of unit and integration testing along with phased launches, feature flags, and proactive alerting to reduce risk during deployment and give us easy ways to roll back if necessary.

Following a launch, features and products continue to be owned by the same team. The team is responsible for monitoring the health of that product, establishing and tracking relevant success metrics, and rolling out fixes and improvements over time.

Technical Challenges

We’re modernizing the infrastructure for group benefits from start to finish.

Traditionally, the health insurance industry is prone to errors, wasting more than $17B in annually. With requirements like having to fax in forms, it’s also hard to know how safe your data is. Unlike others in the space who are operating on FTP files and fixed width mainframe formats, at Noyo we use a modern, API-driven cloud based infrastructure. Our cutting-edge technology allows transactions to process faster and groups to onboard more easily. It also makes data syncing between our customers and insurance carriers fast and easy.

While Python is our domain language of development, the coding challenge in the interview is still set up in a way that people with non-Python backgrounds can complete it. Our infrastructure is orchestrated using Kubernetes and we use Docker for deploying, but we’re open from a tech standpoint. If you’re interested in a certain language or part of the stack, but don’t have experience in it, that's not a blocker at all. We look for folks who are open to growing and learning new frameworks. In fact, individual teams are empowered to advocate for decisions around which tech to adopt, especially as we continue to grow.

Working at Noyo

We are delightfully unique, heavily opinionated individuals. These are the qualities that bind us.

Diversity and Inclusion

We are proud to be a diverse company with a female CEO and co-founder. We believe that the strongest teams have many different backgrounds, interests, and perspectives, so we work hard to eliminate bias from our recruiting and hiring practices. Our company strategy for fostering an inclusive culture also includes compensation transparency, learning and development opportunities, and an employee working group dedicated to justice and equity.

Engineers on our team span across different age groups and experience levels; some have worked at startups before and others have only been at large, publicly traded companies; some are parents and some aren’t; and some are far along in their careers where others are just starting out.

We know that great talent can come from anywhere, so we aren’t looking for brand-name universities or certain companies on your resume. Instead, we make sure to source candidates from all walks of life and give each person an interview process that sets them up for success (no surprise whiteboarding here!). We are constantly evolving and improving our approach to sourcing, recruiting, and hiring to ensure that we are building a team where anyone can belong.

In order to facilitate collaboration across time zones we have core working hours: 9am-2pm PST and 12pm-5pm EST. These hours are when meetings should be scheduled to ensure all team members can join and the hours during which team members are expected to be generally available via Slack or other communication methods. For the average engineer there are typically around 5 hours of recurring meetings per week (mostly standups and sprint ceremonies). Outside of these hours, team members are trusted to get their work done in a manner that works best with their schedule and working preferences.

Approximately 20% of the engineering team are parents, we’ve had numerous team members have children while at Noyo and take advantage of our 12 weeks of parental leave. Throughout COVID we have also supported employees working on different schedules to accommodate childcare responsibilities or take care of personal responsibilities. At the end of the day, our team works from a position of trust – we trust that our team members are responsible and capable of getting their work done without micromanaging.

We attract and include employees because of their uniqueness, not despite it.

We're launched a DEI committee to capture what tools and resources we can utilize to support those from underrepresented backgrounds. We also have Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) to help employees feel connected through a common cause or interest.

Connect with our team during your hiring process

As part of our commitment to an inclusive workplace, we are happy to offer prospective engineers the chance to connect with our engineering employees who come from underrepresented backgrounds. It’s a way to get a better sense of our team and what it might be like to work with us.

If you’re interested in connecting with our team, be sure to bring this up during one of our introductory calls!
