Rhiannon Lococo
Sr. Product Manager

I never thought about how much SQL I would learn in my role! Going into the role, I thought it was a lot more about qualitative conversations, but every product decision we make needs to be backed by data. I need to be able to show exactly why we’re doing what we’re doing

Larmarrio Harden
Professional Services Consultant

I work with some of the best people one could ask to work with. I have worked at a few different jobs and the people that I work with here are not only knowledgeable but they are professional, friendly, easy to work with, caring and willing to help at the drop of a dime. I enjoy working with many of my colleagues and I have developed friendships that I hope will last a lifetime. Namely ROCKS!

Arran Kucharik

Jessica Davis
Manager, Enrollment Operations

On a professional front, I love that every week there is a new challenge or a new initiative to tackle. Working in benefits, I've always seen changes in legislation or changes in how carriers partner with brokers and BenAdmin providers. It's been really unique to be a part of Namely and witness SO many changes within our product & internal processes and how that serves our clients & their unique (and also ever-changing!) needs. One of my favorite parts of being at Namely is getting to partner with so many talented people to figure out ways we can work more efficiently and accurately. On a personal front, I have a toddler who keeps me on my toes so I always look forward to seeing her learn something new every week.

Aaron Masanque

Namely's D&I efforts make it so we as employees not only feel welcome no matter our background and affiliation, but also makes us feel like we belong. I always have someone I can relate to on different levels from my experience as a member of the Asian Community or the LGBTQ community.
