Oracle Announces Expanded Presence in San Francisco and Plans to Accelerate Hiring of Top Cloud Engineers

Bay Area Growth and Recruitment Strategy Support Company's Cloud Momentum

REDWOOD SHORES, CA--(Marketwired - Jan 22, 2015) - Oracle (NYSE: ORCL)

News Summary
On the heels of strong quarterly earnings driven by cloud revenue, Oracle further boosts its position with new offices in San Francisco for public cloud product development. Drawing from the area's renowned talent, the company aims to hire creative engineers to inspire and lead next-generation platforms and infrastructure. This week, Oracle is hosting HackerX events in San Francisco and Santa Clara to offer interview and networking opportunities with key Oracle recruiters and top Oracle executives.

"As the only vendor who can give customers capabilities across a wide range of SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS products, Oracle is in an ideal position to be the leading Cloud vendor for enterprise," said Peter S Magnusson, Senior Vice President of Cloud Development, Oracle. "Recruiting the best engineers is central to our strategy. Historically, engineers experienced with distributed systems would have tended to be based in the South Bay, but that is no longer the case. With our expansion in San Francisco and soon in Berkeley, we're committed to attracting the very best talent with convenient working and commuting conditions."
