Oscar, New York, NY

A better kind of health insurance company

Oscar engineering is building modern software to reinvent the healthcare experience. Our interns work on high-impact projects across our front-end, mobile, platform, and data teams, building rich web applications, product backends and services – and the infrastructure that supports it all.

We set our interns for success: you’ll have the guidance and mentorship of one of our senior engineers, and we’ll pair you with a team that matches your interest. We want our interns to get a hands-on understanding of the different types of problems we’re solving and work on projects that excite them.

Our products and platform are built primarily in Python, JavaScript, Java, Objective C and Go.

About Oscar

Founded in 2012, Oscar is probably the last thing you would expect from a technology startup – a seemingly old-fashioned healthcare insurance provider. The company provides clients with the kind of clarity and simplicity we have come to expect from an e-commerce site. And, of course, they're hiring.
