Hi, we're Oscar. Were hiring a Senior Software Engineer for Web to join our Engineering team in our Los Angeles office.

Oscar is a technology-driven, consumer-focused health insurance startup founded in 2012 & headquartered in New York City. Our goal is to make health insurance simple, transparent, & human. We need your help to do so.

About this role:

In Engineering, we are building reliable & maintainable applications, infrastructure, & interfaces that make interacting with the health care system easier for everyone -- members, providers, & (yes!) ourselves. As an Oscar Engineer, youll be joining a tight knit, passionate team, & leading the designs of world class web & mobile user experiences, influencing how we design infrastructure & complex full stack systems & applications.

Oscars next generation of complex, feature rich, business critical services, data architecture, & scalable infrastructure.Youll mentor engineers to help them design for stability, performance, & scalability across services or clients. We take pride in our ability to move quickly (deploys > 100/day), our small teams (engineers <= 5), & our willingness to tackle big problems (frequency === everyday).

While our technology team of over 100 works in Soho, NYC, we are looking to build out a core team in our Los Angeles location. This is a unique opportunity to have the resources, scale, & stability of an established technology company, but have the freedom & flexibility of an 8 person startup.

What we're actually doing:

The following is a list of projects our team is currently working on:

  • Developing the infrastructure to support multi-channel communication as our membership base grows from 250k to a million & beyond
  • Building a workflow engine to allow teams across Oscar to build configurable experiences to deliver information to our members, providers, & others

You at Oscar:

  • You have been programming professionally for 6+ years working with a variety of technologies, & have increasingly impactful accomplishments
  • You care about what you do.
  • You care about what we do.
  • Youre willing & able to learn quickly, whether it be a new shiny technology or an arcane, ill-conceived data structure; our company may be new, but the health industry isnt!
  • You have a proven track record of building beautiful interfaces that are a joy to use.
  • You consistently improve the quality of what you build, via strong technical contributions as well as through partnership/influence on both product & design.

Anything else is a bonus. We believe diversity is a key ingredient in building something great. All backgrounds welcome.

Life at Oscar

Our more than 1,000 employees aim to make health care affordable & accessible for all. We apply this same vision to our perks & benefits, including: medical benefits, generous paid-time off, paid parental leave, retirement plans, company social events, stocked kitchens, wellness programs, & volunteer opportunities.

At Oscar, being an Equal Opportunity Employer means more than upholding discrimination-free hiring practices. It means that we cultivate an environment where people can be their most authentic selves & find both belonging & support. We're on a mission to change health care -- an experience made whole by your unique background & perspectives.
