At nCino, two of our core values are “Be a Winner” and “Have Fun,” and our annual Hackathon is one way we live these values while fostering friendly competition and pushing the boundaries of innovation.
A Hackathon is a social coding event where individuals or teams come together to collaborate on solving problems and creating innovative solutions to real problems facing bankers. Over the span of a short time frame, typically between a day and a week, participants use their skills and creativity to brainstorm ideas and build prototypes. At the end of the event, teams present their projects to the broader company, with focuses on themes such as coding, design, social impact, and artificial intelligence (AI).
During nCino’s Hackathons, employees are able to showcase their abilities and build platforms, products, and tools for networking, learning, and driving innovation. These events also encourage teamwork, experimentation, and rapid problem solving to foster a competitive yet collaborate environment.
nCino values community service and empowers employees through nVolve, our volunteer organization, to make a positive impact in multiple cities.
nCino offers paid volunteer days, donation matching and flexible volunteering options to support employees' efforts and encourage community involvement.
nVolve's initiatives range from environmental cleanups to educational support, exemplifying nCino's commitment to diverse social causes.
nCino's employee-led volunteer organization, nVolve, embodies the company's values of "Do the Right Thing" and "Make Someone's Day" by sponsoring and supporting projects in various cities, including Wilmington, Salt Lake City, London, Sydney and Toronto. Through initiatives such as paid volunteer days, donation matching and partnerships with non-profits, nCino empowers its employees to make a positive impact in their communities and live out the company's values.
At nCino, two of our core values are “Do the Right Thing” and “Make Someone’s Day.” nVolve, nCino’s employee-led and company-supported volunteer organization, is one important way we live up to those values.
nVolve sponsors and supports projects, programs and organizations across many of the cities in which our offices are located, including Wilmington NC, Salt Lake City, London, Sydney, and Toronto. Committed to community service, nVolve strives to make a difference by mobilizing nCino employees when and where there is a need.
To support our employees' efforts and make volunteering as easy and accessible as possible, every nCino employee receives two paid volunteer days per year, which they can spend volunteering with the organizations of their choice. Employees can pursue activities on their own, sign up with an nCino affinity group already sponsoring an event, select existing opportunities through nVolve or set up a volunteer day with their teams.
nCino also offers donation matching up to a certain amount per employee per year, encouraging employees to support causes that are important to them. Through these various opportunities, we hope to both “Make Someone’s Day” and “Do the Right Thing” at the same time.

The positive interactions borne out of community involvement, whether in person or online, strengthen and expand our work relationships, which in turn helps drive innovation, collaboration and success.
