Hi, we're Oscar. Were hiring a Software Engineer to join our Compute Infrastructure Engineering team.

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 the Role:

As an Oscar Engineer, youll join a tight knit, passionate team, designing & building Oscar's next generation of feature rich scalable compute infrastructure, underlying all of our software systems & enabling our product teams to work effectively. Youll mentor engineers to help them design for stability, performance, & scalability across services & clients.

As a member of our Infrastructure team, youll work to empower Oscar to extract value from & leverage our data through the full life cycle of these datasets: ingress from 3rd parties, analysis & visibility, replication, validation, & egress.

We take pride in our small teams (engineers <= 5), our efforts (deploys > 100/day), & our ambition (deployment frequency == everyday).

You will report into an Engineering leader in our New York City office.

What were doing:

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

  • Support & scale the current generation of Aurora/Mesos computing infrastructure upon which all of Oscars software runs
  • Develop the next generation of computing infrastructure leveraging Kubernetes to support Oscars continued growth & expansion
  • Build & maintain core libraries which support our micro-service based internal system architecture, including secrets management, & discovery


  • Become an expert on your team's business & technical domains.
  • Assist with the planning, execution & release of complex technical projects.
  • Work with partners, product managers, & designers to solve challenging problems.
  • Collaborate with other engineers on the team to improve technology & apply best practices.
  • Implement step-wise technical migrations of our existing services & applications.


  • You care about what you do.
  • You care about what we do.
  • You are a self starter- you like being self led
  • 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 pride yourself on building high-performance, fault-tolerant, & scalable distributed software systems.
  • You have at least 2+ years of professional work experience.
  • Experience with data replication, data warehousing or data pipeline technologies

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

Here is more information on who we are.
