About Oracle

Never has there been a more exciting time to join Oracle, an innovative and fast paced technology organisation. The technology industry is undergoing a once in a generation seismic shift. Underpinned by the migration of infrastructure, platforms and applications to a cloud based delivery model, technologies such as big data, analytics, internet of things, Blockchain, machine learning, and artificial intelligence offer the potential to transform enterprises, governments and the customers and citizens they serve.

Not all of the leaders of the previous generation have or will make the required shift. Oracle is one of the few bucking this trend. The company that dominated the database market is fast being recognized as having crossed the chasm to generation cloud. However, Oracle is not only focused on technology, corporate social responsibility is also key on the Oracle worldwide agenda. From volunteering to fundraising, Oracle employees strive to make a difference
