Junior Software Engineer: Data/Systems

| Greater NYC Area

Our goal is to make healthcare simple, transparent, and human. In Engineering, we do that by building reliable and maintainable applications, infrastructure, and interfaces that make interacting with the health care system easier for everyone -- members, providers, and (yes!) ourselves.

As an Oscar Engineer, you’ll be joining a tight knit, passionate team.  And will work alongside seasoned engineers to develop expertise in specialized areas like: system design and architecture; complex data systems and pipelines; development of communications or other types of infrastructure; and lots more. We take pride in our ability to move quickly (deploys > 100/day), our small teams (engineers

What we're actually doing:

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

  • A search engine that effectively and efficiently connects members to the care they need when they need it.
  • A platform to securely, accurately, and automatically make electronic payments to providers.
  • A system to price and adjudicate claims in real time with startling accuracy.
  • A configurable platform to communicate with members via various channels, including email, snail mail, push notifications, and SMS.

You at Oscar:

If you have passion, great software development skills, and a drive to learn and grow, we want to work with you. That means:

  • You care about what you do.
  • You care about what we do.
  • You’re willing and 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 isn’t!
  • You are excited to build high-performance, fault-tolerant, and scalable software systems.

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

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

Oscar applicants are considered solely based on their qualifications, without regard to applicant’s disability or need for accommodation. Any Oscar applicant who requires reasonable accommodations during the application process should contact the Oscar Benefits Team ([email protected]) to make the need for an accommodation known.

Pay Transparency Policy: Oscar's Pay Transparency Policy ensures that you won't be discharged or discriminated against based on whether you've inquired about, discussed, or disclosed your pay. Read the full policy here.

An Insider's view of Oscar

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The vibe in the office super collaborative. I’ve never been at any company before where so many different departments work so closely together to accomplish the same vision and goals. It doesn’t matter if your team is member facing or not, the vision is the same - making health care simpler and easier to understand for our members.

Gabriela

Senior IT Technician

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

We are striving to make a healthier life accessible and affordable for all. Everything we do is aligned towards solving that high-level problem and given the state of healthcare in the United States it is no easy task.

Isaac

VP, Engineering

What does career growth look like on your team?

As the product design director, it’s my responsibility to set the design team up for success. That means designers understand how they're performing now, how they're expected to grow and how they fit into the company’s future. At Oscar, one of our core values is 'powered by people' -- developing and growing our employees is what raises the bar.

Erin

Director, Product Design

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

I believe accessibility is critical to effective leadership. Being accessible is not only about making time for your team, but also about fostering emotional and human connections with those around you. We have various forums in which I make myself accessible to the team, including an open door policy if anyone needs me for anything at anytime.

Sara

SVP, Product

What are some social events your company does?

Oscar does a great job of 'reading the room'. We have birthday celebrations and celebrate work anniversaries often. In addition, the "surprise & delight" events are always thoughtful, focusing on happiness, mental health, and just providing a plain old reason to take a breather. Nothing beats the company-wide camping trip over the summer though!
