Hi, we're Oscar. We’re hiring an Associate Product Operations Manager to join our Product 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:

The Product Operations team unlocks Oscar’s ability to ship more products faster and better, which is critical to Oscar’s overall mission to use technology and design to refactor healthcare. The primary function of Product Operations is to execute and continuously improve processes leading up to product launch, as well as ongoing processes that have not been automated. 

Oscar’s work in tech spans several areas: building innovative consumer experiences, technology and infrastructure, expanding into new markets, creating better ways for healthcare providers to interact with patients, optimizing internal operations and processes, and lots more. 

As an Associate Product Operations Manager, you will be embedded with 2-3 of our engineering pods, working in partnership with a talented team of Product Managers, Engineers and Designers. You’ll become an expert in your domain area and become the “go to” person for questions about our current product functionality. You’ll own key product delivery processes, such as QA Planning, Launch Readiness and Bug Triage -- both ensuring that they’re executed well and continuously improved. 

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

Responsibilities:

  • Partner closely with Product team members, Engineering, Business teams, external partners, and other stakeholders to ensure that “stuff gets done” within your domain.
  • Execute on operational tasks, such as inbound file integrations and maintaining data taxonomies, with an eye towards making them better.
  • Dive into the data and systems using SQL to understand trends and troubleshoot issues.
  • Build and maintain an open line of communication with stakeholders and team members in and across departments. 
  • Work with PM & Engineering to specify test and acceptance criteria for manual QA testing, including documenting the test plan & scenarios.
  • Facilitate internal communications around project status, feature launches and dependencies.
  • Ensure that bugs are being escalated and triaged appropriately.
  • Create and maintain documentation to make processes sustainable and scalable.
  • Design and implement key processes that help us scale our products.

Requirements:

  • You can manage your work independently, but you enjoy working cross-functionally to accomplish greater goals as a team.
  • You grasp technical concepts quickly, ask good questions, and are as comfortable working side-by-side with engineers as you are explaining software requirements to a non-technical audience. (Ability to write code is not required.)
  • You represent the needs of the Tech team in conversations with internal stakeholders. 
  • You communicate clearly and concisely in written form.
  • You’ve demonstrated your ability to pick up technical concepts; while SQL is not a requirement for the role coming in, you will need to learn and use SQL regularly in this role.
  • Experience. You have 4+ years of work experience in a cross-functional role in technology or operations. Ideally, at least 2+ years of that experience involves working directly with engineers and designers.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities.

Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past.
