While many IT companies are shedding headcount, Oracle plans to add 1,000 new employees to its sales force across Asia Pacific (APAC). The expansion will help equip Oracle to drive growth and support demand for Oracle Cloud solutions across the region.
“Strong economic growth and the infinite possibilities that cloud technologies offer has created an unprecedented opportunity in Asia Pacific,” said Loic Le Guisquet, President, EMEA & APAC at Oracle.
“We are recruiting talent from across the region to create a world-class sales team that will help Oracle’s customers embrace the cloud. The opportunity that cloud technologies create is profound and there’s never been a better time to work for Oracle.”
Oracle offers its employees “unrivaled career opportunities working with the biggest customers in the world and for the only cloud company supporting 19 of the top 20 cloud providers in the world.”
Oracle’s recruitment efforts will primarily focus on growth in Australia, Greater China, India, Korea, and the ASEAN countries; however, there are roles being created across the region.
Each year, Oracle invests $5 billion in research and development to help ensure the company’s products are the most innovative in the industry. Today, the cloud opportunity in APAC is fueled by strong economic growth and an unrivalled broadband and mobile infrastructure. Oracle plans to capitalize on this with an expanded sales force.
