Hi, we're Oscar. We're hiring a Senior Security Engineer, Application Security to join our Security 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:

As a Senior Security Engineer, you will collaborate closely with fellow Security team members as well as with cross-functional partners within Engineering and Product. Your primary objective will be to safeguard classified information by thoroughly assessing and examining Oscar's applications and infrastructure. In addition, you will be responsible for presenting identified risks and providing guidance on best practices to prevent future vulnerabilities.

You will report into the Senior Director of Security. 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

The base pay for this role is $156,560-$205,485 per year. You are also eligible for employee benefits, company equity grants, participation in Oscar's unlimited vacation program and annual performance bonuses.

  • Collaborate with non-technical teams to propose control and process enhancements to mitigate technical risk
  • Stay up-to-date with current security trends, advisories, publications and relevant research for the organization
  • Define hardening and secure design standards and use them to perform application security reviews in partnership with developer teams


  • 5+ years of experience assessing Web Applications, Cloud Environments, Mobile Applications and Network security

  • Experience assessing cloud environment for misconfigurations and security vulnerabilities
