Oracle to hire 1,000 workers overseas
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.
