About Us

NowPow, whose name is a play on knowledge is power, is a women-owned and led technology business based on Chicago’s south side. NowPow’s technology platform is a multi-sided, community resource network management solution that enables care professionals – social workers, physicians, justice workers – to manage and close the loop on health and social service referrals. The platform helps people get the care they need, whether they are managing chronic health and social conditions or just staying well.

In four years, we have grown our U.S. reach to 14 states plus Washington D.C. with customers ranging from big health systems and health plans to small community health centers and community-based organizations.

WOW BENEFITS & PERKS

We take great care of our NowPow community.

Competitive Benefits. We offer comprehensive health insurance for our team and their dependents—and there’s no waiting period to enroll. We also offer parental leave, dental and vision coverage, as well as health savings and flexible spending accounts. Want to contribute to your 401K? We’ll match it.

Generous Time Off. We have generous paid time off (PTO) days and celebrate 10 paid holidays a year. On top of that, we offer “Life Time Hours” for events that can’t be scheduled outside of regular working hours and additional paid “Self Care Days.” We don’t just preach self care, we practice it.

Remote Work & Casual Dress. Every day is casual dress at NowPow, but especially Wednesdays. That’s our company-wide remote workday. We believe the option to telework once a week improves your productivity, creativity and morale.

A Culture of Innovation & Collaboration. NowPowers are smart and passionate about our mission, and we encourage everyone to contribute to our company’s continuous innovation. Our NewPow Innovation Challenge has fabulous prizes, too.

A Committed & Connected Community. Our Culture Club represents every department and is dedicated to planning game nights, contests, community volunteering and other

fun activities. We also host News & Nosh every Friday—a Happy Hour where we reflect on the week and enjoy snacks and drinks (from our always-stocked kitchen).

VALUES: OUR ULTIMATE CONNECTOR
