Data Scientist, Clinical Programs
New York, NY
Hi, we're Oscar. We’re hiring a Data Scientist, Clinical Programs to join our Data team in our New York office.
Oscar is a technology-driven, consumer-focused health insurance startup founded in 2012 and headquartered in New York City. Our goal is to make health insurance simple, transparent, and human. We need your help to do so.
About the role:
Oscar is restructuring health care to make it easy, affordable, and seamless for consumers to access high value care. Oscar’s data team is focused on pushing our understanding of this complex landscape. Insurance companies sit on a trove of data that is both broad and deep, spanning financial claims, clinical medical records, and rich product interaction data from our members. Connecting the dots across these datasets gives us unique insight into how the healthcare system functions and allows us to improve care coordination, better manage risk, build higher-performing provider networks, and create a standout consumer experience in our product. At Oscar, we are looking for bright and curious data minded individuals to join our team of 30+ researchers, data scientists, and analysts to leverage our efforts!
You will report into a Director, Data Science.
You’ll provide key data science and analytical support to our population health and member programs teams, helping them improve clinical outcomes for our members. Some projects you might work on include:
- Determining the best patients for nurses and social workers to engage with
- Evaluating programs that are live and identifying areas for improvement
- Making our communications to members about clinical issues (e.g. flu shots) more data-driven
- You have 2+ years of relevant work experience or a Master’s degree in a quantitative field
- You use data science tools like SQL and Python
- You’re excited about being (or becoming) a decision-maker, not just an analyst
- You know when to look outside the data to solve problems
- Knowledge of health care, health economics, or health insurance
