Hi, we're Oscar. We’re hiring a Data Engineer to join our team.

Oscar is the first health insurance company built around a full stack technology platform and a relentless focus on serving our members. We started Oscar in 2012 to create the kind of health insurance company we would want for ourselves—one that behaves like a doctor in the family.

The Data Platform team is responsible for the developing tools for data users across Oscar Health. We remove data silos, democratize data, and empower data scientists, operations, engineers, and our partners to make data-driven decisions.

As a Data Engineer on the Data Platform team, you will play a leading role in building a secure data platform to tackle the challenges around orchestration, resource management, and building tools and ML frameworks for data scientists and engineers. You are someone that has strong technical chops that wants to democratize data across the organization. You are happy to mentor and guide data users on best practices. You are a problem solver, with a track record of building highly scalable data pipelines and distributed systems.

You will report to an Associate Director of Data Engineering. This is a remote / work-from-home role. You must reside in one of the following states: Arizona, California, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, or Washington. Note, this list of states is subject to change. #LI-Remote
