Stepping into the fray during the inaugural sales season, coinciding with ACA open enrollment, marked the beginning of an exhilarating chapter in my career at Oscar Health. As a hands-on individual contributor, I was deeply involved in constructing the initial product and pioneering a digital sales funnel that would become a trailblazing online tool for the health insurance industry. My days were filled with the intricacies of product design, a field I embraced with passion and dedication.
As the demands grew, so did our ambitions. With each passing day, it became evident that to truly elevate our impact, a robust team was needed. It was a transition that called for leadership and vision. Over time, I took on the task of building a design team from the ground up, nurturing talent, and fostering a collaborative environment.
Seeing the team expand to 12 skilled individuals was a testament to the collective effort and dedication we poured into our work. Guiding others to bring forth their best work was both a challenge and a privilege. It was a journey of growth, not just in numbers, but in the caliber of work we produced.
This period of transformation wasn't without its challenges, yet it was a chapter defined by the satisfaction of seeing our collective efforts translate into meaningful impact. From my early days of hands-on design work to steering a team of talented individuals, every step of the way was a testament to the power of dedication, collaboration, and a shared vision.
