Hi, we're Oscar. We're hiring a Senior Site Reliability Engineer II, Infrastructure Metal to join our Engineering 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

Infrastructure Metal is a site reliability team with a mission to guide software and cloud-based infrastructure decisions for optimal cost, performance, and security.

Our team is focused on the Compute Platforms at Oscar and ensuring that teams have intuitive and simple self-service capabilities to run their applications. We are responsible for maintaining a suite of cloud-native applications that build up our Kubernetes-based platform.
