“Cloud Engineering Infrastructure Development”
Oracle’s Cloud Infrastructure Group is building new Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) technologies that operate at high scale in a broadly distributed multi-tenant cloud environment. Our customers run their businesses on our cloud, and our mission is to provide them with best in class compute, storage, networking, database, and security.
We are looking for an experienced Software Development Engineer with cloud services experience to join our Infrastructure Platform team. In this role, you will define, design, implement and support software solutions that automate the management of systems that deliver a cloud infrastructure service of high quality, stability and performance via a continuous integration and deployment model. You will partner with other engineering development teams responsible for architecting, designing and managing systems that support our IaaS platform. Through this work, you will play a key role in increasing the velocity of engineering while still driving quality into the product development lifecycle across all development teams within Infrastructure Platform. Ultimately, your work will ensure our IaaS solution is built to exceed our customers’
expectations on quality, performance, and fault tolerance.
As an ideal candidate you will have designed and implemented services that manage the configuration of infrastructure systems in an automated fashion at scale. In addition, you will have a strong understanding of Linux/Unix fundamentals and will combine this knowledge with your hands on experience in software development - you will champion creating an engineering environment that embodies the best development and testing practices for delivering a high quality service.
These are exciting times in our space - we are growing fast; we are still at an early stage where an individual can have a significant impact. We are working on ambitious new initiatives. If you are passionate about taking ownership of big technical challenges and producing software solutions that have broad, significant impacts - come join our team!
