Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) is leading the transformation to cloud-native Big Data technologies in our hyper-scale, multi-tenant cloud, deployed in more than 20 regions worldwide. OCI is committed to providing the best in cloud services that meet the needs of our customers, who are tackling some of the world's biggest challenges.
We are interested in a senior leader with expertise and passion in solving difficult problems in distributed systems and highly available services. At Oracle, you can help, shape, design and build innovative new systems from the ground up. These are exciting times in our space - we are growing fast, still at an early stage, and working on ambitious new initiatives. Managers at any level can have significant technical and business impact.
As a Director of Engineering, you will own the execution of software design, development, operations for major components of Oracle's Enterprise Applications. You should have technical depth, architectural know how, be a distributed systems generalist, strong people and process manager and able to dive deep into any part of the stack and low-level systems. You should value simplicity and scale, work comfortably in a collaborative, agile environment, and be excited to learn.
Enterprise Application's charter is to build cloud native services focused on serving internal and external enterprise customers. The service work scope encompasses not just good integration with OCI's native infrastructure (security, cloud storage, etc.), but also deep integration with other relevant cloud native services in OCI (like Oracle Kubernetes, enterprise tools etc.). It includes doing cloud native ways of doing service level patching & upgrades and maintaining high availability of the service in the face of random failures & planned downtimes in the underlying infrastructure (e.g., for things like patching the Linux kernels to take care of a security vulnerability). Implementing SRE principles, automating operations to eliminate time sinks, developing systems for monitoring and getting telemetry into the service's runtime characteristics and being able to take actions on the telemetry data is a part of the charter.
