An Insider's view of NUVIA Inc.

What are some social events your company does?

I love how open, friendly and supportive everyone is at NUVIA. A few of my favorite things about working here are the virtual happy hours to help employees get to know each other better, many of whom have never met in person due to the pandemic, and the focus on health and wellness with virtual exercise classes offered multiple times a week.
