Nomad Health, the first online marketplace for healthcare jobs, today announced that accomplished technology executive Liming Zhao has joined the Nomad team as the Chief Technology Officer (CTO). Liming will oversee Nomad’s efforts in engineering, data science, IT, and security and will build out additional parts of the technical organization as the company expands into new areas.
Liming Zhao has had a robust and successful career in the technology space. Prior to Nomad, Liming was most recently co-founder and CTO of Frontier Signal and before that, he was the CTO of modern real estate platform Compass, where he led their technology and engineering teams through five years of tremendous growth.

“As CTO, Liming will help us craft and implement Nomad’s technical strategy, lead us to explore new technologies and opportunities, and head the team behind the Nomad platform,” said Alexi Nazem, M.D., Nomad Co-Founder and CEO. “Liming has an outstanding record of leading digital transformations.

“Nomad is a disruptive force in healthcare staffing,” said Liming Zhao. “I am honored to join the team in bringing innovative technology to the antiquated process of filling clinical jobs. The best way to solve the healthcare staffing shortage crisis is through technology. I am excited to work alongside the leadership team as Nomad continues to scale our platform capabilities and keep the industry on its toes.”
The addition of Liming Zhao as Chief Technology Officer is an important step for Nomad Health as the company establishes itself as a technology leader in the healthcare staffing industry.
