Hi, we're Oscar. We're hiring a Data Analyst to join our Insurance Operations 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.

About the role:

We are hiring an Associate to join our Provider Lifecycle team. This newly created lead level analyst position will be focused on turning our provider, facility and related operational data into insights and reporting. Collectively, the roles will be focused on improving our filing infrastructure (greater accuracy and less touch), setting up processes for monitoring and evaluation of issues, and analyzing our trove of operational data to find efficiencies and determine the value of projects. This is an excellent opportunity for a career professional looking for a change and a challenge,.

You will report to the Senior Manager, Provider Operations Optimization & Insights. 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
