Oracle Australia Creates 200 New Jobs To Support Cloud Growth

Enterprise hardware and software giant Oracle is hiring 200 additional staff for a digital sales hub in Sydney, Australia. The company is looking for digital sales professionals to help woo mid-sized organisations that are looking to transition to the cloud. Here’s are the details.

This comes off the back of the appointment of Rob Willis, former Citrix executive, as Oracle’s new managing director for Australia and New Zealand. Oracle is keen to take on the mid-market with its cloud offerings. The company hopes that a fleet of new recruits coupled with its Accelerated Buying Experience program, aimed at speeding up the cloud service buying process, will help it gain more marketshare in this space.

While traditionally known for its database solutions, Oracle has since branched out to offer a number of cloud services including enterprise software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications and platform-as-a-service (PaaS). The company just snapped up domain name system (DNS) provider Dyn, which had recently suffered a DDoS attack that took down a portion of the internet, for an undisclosed sum to help flesh out its infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) offerings.
