Or­a­cle to hire 1,000 work­ers over­seas

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - BUSINESS & FARM -

RED­WOOD, Calif. — Or­a­cle Corp. said Tues­day that it will hire 1,000 em­ploy­ees in Europe, the Mid­dle East and Africa as it ex­pands its cloud com­put­ing ser­vices in the re­gion.

The com­pany is look­ing for work­ers with be­tween two to six years of ex­pe­ri­ence in staff sales, man­age­ment, fi­nance, re­cruit­ment, mar­ket­ing and hu­man re­sources roles for its cloud com­put­ing ser­vice, Or­a­cle said.

The Red­wood, Calif.-based com­pany did not spec­ify which of­fices would be adding staff.

The move comes about a month af­ter the com­pany re­ported 58 per­cent yearover-year rev­enue growth in its cloud busi­nesses, which al­lows cor­po­rate cus­tomers to man­age data through a net­work of Or­a­cle-run servers. The com­pany sold $4.6 bil­lion worth of cloud com­put­ing soft­ware and hard­ware last year, up from $2.9 bil­lion the year be­fore.

“Our cloud busi­ness is grow­ing at in­cred­i­ble rates, so now is the right time to bring in a new gen­er­a­tion of tal­ent,” Tino Schol­man, vice pres­i­dent of Or­a­cle’s cloud com­put­ing for the re­gion, said in a state­ment.

Cloud- re­lated prod­ucts now ac­count for more than 12 per­cent of Or­a­cle’s to­tal sales. The com­pany em­ploys ap­prox­i­mately 51,000 staff in the U.S. and 85,000 in­ter­na­tion­ally.
