Oracle – Why Work For Us?


Today, 430,000 customers in 175 countries use Oracle technologies to seize business opportunities and solve real, tangible challenges. Oracle has become the underpinning of all the internet services we take for granted today, such as Amazon and Expedia—and we’re always working on the next big thing.

Oracle’s intelligent cloud applications, platforms, and infrastructure leverage the latest technologies and emerging ones—including AI, machine learning, Blockchain, and the Internet of Things—to create business differentiation and advantage for customers. We’ve set a new standard by developing the world’s first autonomous database, freeing up people to focus on what we do best: dreaming, innovating, and building.

Continued technological advances are always on the horizon, and we invest heavily in R&D—US $6.2 billion in FY 2017—to stay at the forefront. We make strategic investments to train our people with the latest skills and technologies they need to create innovative solutions, delivering an average 3.4 million hours of employee training through Oracle University each year. And we seek to hire the best talent who want to help us innovate faster.

At Oracle you’ll find an entrepreneurial environment where you’ll be encouraged—even challenged—to pursue your greatest ideas. From our self-service culture to our open-standards philosophy, Oracle believes in equipping people with the best tools, and the freedom, to innovate in their own unique way.

Our culture is much like that of a startup: we value creative problem-solving, open communication, and the belief that the next big idea can come from anyone. Yet we have the power, reach, and resources that come with being the #1 technology leader across categories and industries.

Our global offices reflect the inspiring and fun workspaces you’d envision from a tech leader: open collaboration, gyms, cafés, and game rooms. However, we encourage our people to have as much fun outside the office as they do within. We believe innovation truly comes from well-rounded, balanced people who can be themselves.
