Hi, we're Oscar. We're hiring an Analytics Engineer II to join our Data team.

Oscar is the first health insurance company built around a full stack technology platform and a 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.

About the Role:

As an Analytics Engineer II on the Data team, you will play a leading role in the design, implementation, optimization and maintenance of the next generation of Oscar’s Certified Datasets (CDS). You will democratize data across the organization and will mentor and guide data users on best practices. You will exhibit a deep respect for the role of Data Governance and the need for fit-for-purpose data that will empower end users to answer their own questions. You will also problem solve and collaborate with stakeholders—executing on tasks that range from detailed optimization of code to delivering on entire end-to-end projects.

You will report into a Senior Director of Data Science.

Work Location:

Oscar is a blended work culture where everyone, regardless of work type or location, feels connected to their teammates, our culture and our mission.

This is a hybrid role in our New York City office. You will work part of the time in the office and part of the time remote / work-from-home. #LI-Hybrid

Pay Transparency:

The base pay for this role is $131,200-$172,200 per year. You are also eligible for employee benefits, company equity grants, participation in Oscar's unlimited vacation program and annual performance bonuses.

You must be currently authorized to work in the United States on a full-time basis. Oscar will not sponsor applicants for this role.
