Oracle Announces Cloud Infrastructure Hiring Spree

Published On: October 28, 2019Categories: Buzz, Uncategorized

Oracle has announced plans to hire nearly 2,000 employees worldwide to work on its growing Oracle Cloud Infrastructure business. The new roles, which include software development, cloud operations, and business operations, are intended to support Oracle’s expanding customer base, and further support upcoming product rollouts.

“Cloud is still in its early days with less than 20 percent penetration today, and enterprises are just beginning to use cloud for mission-critical workloads,” said Don Johnson, executive vice president, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. “Our aggressive hiring and growth plans are mapped to meet the needs of our customers, providing them reliability, high performance, and robust security as they continue to move to the cloud.”

Recent product innovations include new automated cloud security services, the launch of Autonomous Linux, and a host of new cloud data services.

In the past year, Oracle has opened 12 new Gen 2 Cloud regions and currently operates 16 regions globally. The Redwood Shores, California-based company also plans to add 20 more regions by the end of 2020, bringing the global footprint to 36 total regions. 

Oracle also intends to make additional real estate investments to support the expanded Oracle Cloud Infrastructure workforce.
