Hi, we're Oscar. We're hiring a Senior Network Specialist to join our Market P&L 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.
