Preferred Qualifications

The Opportunity

A unique opportunity to help design, build and operate a new public cloud service from the ground up, and learn to be a world-class cloud software engineer.

Oracle’s product engineering teams are building critical services within Oracle’s next-generation public cloud infrastructure known as Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) [0]. These services provide the foundation for businesses around the world as well as Oracle’s Cloud (SaaS) Applications.

The Platform

With revolutionary innovations in performance, availability, ease of use and security, we designed OCI for the reliability, predictability and quality that the world’s largest companies and smartest start-ups need. We combined the elasticity and utility of public cloud with the granular control, security, and predictability of on-premises infrastructure. As a result, our customers can run the most demanding workloads, as well as less compute-intensive applications, in a secure and highly available cloud environment.

The Product

Oracle's Developer Services Group designs, builds and operates Oracle's next-generation public cloud services which enable customers to write cloud-native microservices packaged and deployed as containers, such as Oracle Container Engine for Kubernetes, Oracle Functions, Oracle Container Registry, Oracle API Gateway etc.

We are hiring engineers to work on a new cloud-native service in developer services space. The service will be an enterprise-grade cloud service running at scale in dozens of commercial, government and private data centers around the world. We will be building it from the ground up on the OCI Platform. It will serve many diverse customer needs and has a long and extensive roadmap of compelling and technically challenging features.

The Positions

Software Engineer / Senior Software Engineer
