2020 HW Woman of Influence: Anna Ratanawan

SimpleNexus, Vice President of People Operations

Anna Ratanawan

Under Anna Ratanawan’s direction, SimpleNexus split its product and engineering divisions and reinvented them as project-specific teams consisting of a product manager, designer, senior engineer and a number of junior engineers and interns.

This created two remarkable results: a better enabling of development efforts in accordance with MISMO’s universal industry standards and the encouragement of team members to cultivate varied skill sets. Ratanawan’s vision for the company also brought about a quarterly continuing education for developers, which the company credits with giving product and engineering teams better insight into designing technology solutions. Ratanawan also developed HIVE – the acronym stands for hungry, innovative, vibrant and empathetic – a system for managers to better judge employee applications, and she also implemented the employee recognition software Motivosity to allow the staff to recognize their peers who exhibit HIVE values. Outside of the office, Ratanawan partnered with local universities on a multi-semester internship program for software development students – and, to date, SimpleNexus hired more than half of its interns. Ratanawan’s efforts have been noticed by the wider world: the company’s executive leadership earned an “A” rating from Comparably.
