Hi, we're Oscar. Were hiring a Software Engineer: Data/Systems to join our Engineering team in our NYC 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.
In Engineering, we do that by 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. And will work alongside seasoned engineers to develop expertise in specialized areas like: system design & architecture; complex data systems & pipelines; development of communications or other types of infrastructure; & lots more. 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).
What we're actually doing:
The following is a list of projects our teams are currently working on:
A search engine that effectively & efficiently connects members to the care they need when they need it.
A platform to securely, accurately, & automatically make electronic payments to providers.
A system to price & adjudicate claims in real time with startling accuracy.
A configurable platform to communicate with members via various channels, including email, snail mail, push notifications, & SMS.
You at Oscar:
If you have passion, great software development skills, & a drive to learn & grow, we want to work with you. That means:
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 are excited to build high-performance, fault-tolerant, & scalable software systems.
Anything else is a bonus. We believe diversity is a key ingredient in building something great. All backgrounds welcome.
Life at Oscar:
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 our unique backgrounds & perspectives.
We encourage our members to care for their whole selves, & we encourage our employees to do the same with comprehensive medical benefits, generous paid-time off, paid parental leave, retirement plans, company social events, stocked kitchens, wellness programs, & volunteer opportunities.
