Business Development Consultant
Healthcare is broken; we're trying to fix it. The Oscar team is focused on utilizing technology, design and data to humanize healthcare. We're a group of technology and healthcare professionals who looked at the current state of the US healthcare system, got frustrated by the horrible consumer experience, and decided to do something big about it. Backed by a renowned set of investors and advisors, we’ve set out to revolutionize healthcare.
Oscar is a new kind of health insurance company that is using technology, data, and design to deliver a better healthcare experience. We’ve brought together leaders from top technology and healthcare companies to create a talented team that is passionate about helping people navigate the complex and confusing healthcare industry. We all work side by side in a collaborative, energetic, and creative environment. The result: better people, better ideas, and better healthcare.
We are looking for part-time help across sales, account management, marketing and community management. We value hunger and smarts over experience and can offer tremendous flexibility and competitive pay. Top performers will be offered full-time positions as the company grows.
Quickly you will learn about the healthcare industry and how it is changing. You will understand the Oscar product and value proposition and learn how to communicate that effectively to numerous stakeholders. Upon completion you should be able to identify, design, and manage the construction of key channels and relationships that help Oscar generate lives and improve our core product.
In your first six week you will learn: - How to help people get Affordable Healthcare. - Our space, our competitors, and our product. - Our expansion plan. - How we find, construct, close, and manage our key business deals. - Our systems and key processes. - The story of our company. - The key functions and resources you will need to get things done. - About our people, one of our greatest assets. - How to set a tone of high energy and spirit within the Business Development Team to make the impossible possible.

We are looking for someone who can see opportunity and seize it. Excellent candidates will be able to see what doesn’t exist, construct opportunities that help Oscar gain customers, and constantly reflect on how to improve those pathways and scale them.
Must-have qualifications and expertise include: - University degree from a top school. - Previous experience with deals through business development, venture, private equity, or partnerships of similar complexity. - Live or be willing to relocate so you can work at our offices in New York City.
