Our Employer of the Week series features a company each week that has made a commitment to hiring and supporting veterans. This week’s employer is nCino.

nCino is a leader in cloud banking that streamlines company-client interactions within a single cloud-based Bank Operating System. Financial institutions in nCino’s client base have experienced a 22 percent increase in staff efficiency, a 17 percent reduction in operating costs and a 19 percent increase in loan volume.

“We were built by bankers for bankers,” said Josh Glover, executive vice president of America for nCino and Marine Corps veteran. “We help banks transform their commercial banking, retail banking and other processes to keep up with customers’ evolving expectations.”

Glover served in the Marines for ten years before medically retiring in 2011 and landing at nCino. He knows that his smooth transition is the exception rather than the norm.

“I was really blessed with a great transition,” Glover said. “I was lucky to find the right leaders who saw the intangibles I could offer. They saw in me someone who was excited to make the transition and was going to work hard for them.”

Now, nCino works to be both a resource for veterans and a model for other companies that want to open their doors to this unique talent pool.”

nCino partners with multiple veteran transition programs in order to facilitate veteran shifts into the civilian workforce. Tech Qualled offers a program which provides veterans with a personalized learning environment that allows access to previously barricaded career paths in high technology. The Honor Foundation is a similar veteran transition program that is designed specifically for Navy SEALs and the U.S. Special Operations community. Breakline similarly offers education, support and mentorship programs to help launch post-military careers. 

Glover personally hopes to communicate with companies about offering these same opportunities to other veterans. 

“I want to help other veterans not have to rely on serendipity to help them make a transition — because it’s the right thing to do, but also because veterans have a lot of value to offer businesses and growing companies of all kind.”

The company also has a strong veteran network that grew organically as the company hired more and more veterans.  

“Most of our veteran hiring has just been through a very informal but very tight network that we all have as veterans,” Glover said. “Once a company can help a veteran make that soft landing in a great career and give them growth opportunities we all talk to our peers and friends and mentors about it.”

In addition to reaching out to other veterans, Glover reaches out to other companies about how they can best help veterans find such a landing spot.

“I think lots of companies don't know where to start,” Glover said. “They feel that they have to do this on their own. For any company that wants to figure out how to bring veterans into their organizations, the good news is there are lots of wonderful organizations that can help you do that. This isn't something that you have to stumble through on your own.”

“We're proud of what we've done here at nCino and we hope we can be an example and resource for other companies,” Glover said. “I can't imagine running this team without our veteran contribution, and I think other companies will have a similar experience.”
