Culture attributes

Our people are our greatest asset. We evaluate each applicant’s fit with nova on the basis of the following attributes:

  • Integrity

    Our clients work to solve complex problems and discover innovative medicines. We are committed to doing what is right for the patients they serve.

  • Emergent leadership

    We don’t care about titles or seniority, we expect each member of our team to act like an owner, not like an employee. A typical illustration is: “I’ve identified a problem, figured out what caused it, researched how to fix it, and I fixed it.”

  • Comfort with ambiguity

    Human biology is eminently complex so more often than not you will be faced with a problem which does not have a clear cut solution.

  • Intellectual humility

    While we hire the brightest minds we also ensure these individuals operate as part of a team. It’s a matter of “we”, not “I”. And it’s ok to make mistakes as long as you learn from them.

Join us full time

You will go through a thorough recruitment process if you are selected as a potential candidate, and we’re mindful of your time, so don’t bother with a cover letter as most of them look alike and those who stand out are poor predictors of actual performance on the job.
