Current Openings


Alluma employees dig deep into how our clients work and the challenges faced by the people they serve, so we can streamline complicated processes and design smart solutions that work better for everyone. At Alluma, every employee has a role in ensuring that nobody falls through the cracks.




OUR TRUTHS


It’s more than just code.

Technology is just a tool. It’s really our mission, experience, and problem-solving methods that set us apart. We know that technology solutions must consider a person’s whole experience. Behind each line of code is our sole focus: to make people’s lives better.


Clients are the heroes.

The staff and administrators working tirelessly to help their communities inspire us to go farther, dig deeper, and listen closer. We believe in true partnership. We strive to do our best for our clients, deliver what they need, and anticipate opportunities to do more. We believe in going the extra mile.

A family is waiting.

Too many people fall through the cracks in the complex system of help in this country. The urgency to make the process faster, easier, and more dignified has never been more important.  Long waits for help can literally mean life or death. Sustainable change doesn’t happen overnight, but taking action today makes a real difference in people’s lives.


All people can need help.

We believe all of us can find ourselves in need of help at some point in our lives. There is no “them” vs. “us.” We all want a beautiful life, and we all face challenges.




OUR APPEAL



As a social worker, community organizer, and alumnus of the social safety net, I’ve seen the good, the bad, and the ugly side of government services. The opportunity to leverage these personal and professional experiences within an organization actively reimagining the way beneficiaries experience health and human services, was a perfect fit for me.
- Policy Analyst


The chance to build a new thing — to innovate — inside a strong company with a bold mission was very attractive, along with the challenges that brings.
- Data Officer

I am a firm believer and advocate that innovation has to lead to better experiences, it has to solve the critical fundamental problem, remove barriers, and elevate people.
- General Manager


I've worked with people/families who had been denied or discontinued [benefits] for various reasons. I wanted to be part of the solution and part of the team behind the scenes working to find opportunities for improvement versus finding the problems after the fact — after a client had already been without coverage.
— Implementation Specialist
