Strategy & Operations Analyst at Nowsta
Who We Are
Nowsta helps employers become better managers by giving them the tools they need to automate, simplify, and humanize the labor management process (think scheduling, time tracking, payroll processing integrations, and reporting + analytics). We’re building the first all in one platform for scheduling and time tracking, vendor and labor management, and financial wellness. Our mission is to create a better and more human work experience for managers and employees, and change the way hourly workers get paid, through a wellness benefit program that gives employees access to cash out earnings instantly for the work they've already completed.
Nowsta powers some of the largest workforces in sectors such as events, hospitality, staffing, and many more. Employers turn to Nowsta when they want to streamline operations, reduce turnover, and increase workplace satisfaction.
We’re backed by some great investors including Ulu, Green Visor, and Compound Ventures. We work hard together, but also enjoy taking team trips, debating the greatest Seinfeld scenes, and eating lots of BBQ.
