Manager, Accounting

Oscar, New York

A better kind of health insurance company

What we want you for

We are changing how health insurance works. We want to create a healthcare experience that’s intuitive and puts people, not cost or workflows, first. We’re using a consumer-focused and tech-driven approach to do so. This positions us uniquely in the space - and creates one of the biggest opportunities in healthcare.

We brought together leaders from top technology, service and healthcare companies to deliver on our promise and seize this opportunity. We all work side by side in a collaborative, energetic, and creative environment. The result: better people, better ideas, and better healthcare.

In this role you will be a key member and leader in a dynamic environment, reporting directly to the Senior Manager of Accounting working on process improvements to our general ledger operations. This role will work collaboratively with teams both inside and outside the finance organization, such as our insurance operations teams, actuaries, FP&A, and the external auditors.

What is this position?

We are looking first and foremost for a great people leader with a proven ability to bring together strong teams. You will own our most complex close workflows such as intercompany administration and entity level analytics. As a manager you will oversee core close entries and reconciliations as we build out our internal controls. As an experienced manager, you independently own deliverables while directly coaching and upleveling the capabilities of more junior team members.

In the first four months:

  • Own the overall close management including deliverables from insurance operations, FP&A, the actuarial team, etc.
  • You will work with FP&A and AP to explore the GL reporting capabilities of a new AP subledger to improve accruals, budget analysis, etc.
  • With the help of specialists you will begin automating the intercompany process 

About you:

  • 5-7 years of experience, including a combination of a “Big 4” accounting firm and public/private accounting experience
  • BA/BS degree in accounting or related field
  • Proven team building and people management experience
  • Experience at an enterprise using the Netsuite GL system

We think it will make a big (positive) difference if you have:

  • Statutory accounting experience at a Health Insurance Company
  • Experience working at a startup
  • Worked with our other current platforms: Concur, Tipalti, Adaptive, BigQuery

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.
