Background


Oracle is rapidly transforming itself into a hyper scale cloud player by aggressively rolling out Generation 2 Cloud Infrastructure and Data Centres, across the world and specifically in Asia-Pacific. The Oracle Cloud is differentiated through its enterprise-grade capabilities that host a comprehensive suite of offerings across IaaS, PaaS and SaaS. More than 80% of enterprise workloads still run on on-premise systems. At Oracle, we believe we can make the critical difference in moving this percentage much higher, through the enterprise-grade security, robustness, open standards and integration capabilities that our cloud portfolio provides.


We are now hiring individuals who are ready to innovate cloud services and empower our customers to make the migration of enterprise workloads to the cloud. The  Cloud Migration Expert  will be instrumental in helping customers accelerate their digital transformations by moving workloads and deploying new cloud native projects on to Oracle’s cloud infrastructure and platforms. The Cloud Solution Architect will also help customers in defining customer’s cloud strategies aligned with customer’s business objectives and with a focus on Cloud Migrations.


Are you cloud native? Do you baulk at the thought of on-premise platforms? Have you started using and deploying containerized applications rather than just virtual machines? Have you experimented with micro-services? Have you migrated test, development, pre-production or production systems to the public cloud? Do you have a passion for helping organizations move, improve, secure and govern their application assets on the Cloud? Can you shape and deliver the cloud roadmap of your customer? If you are or can, this may just be the next big break in your career.
