The Communications 4G & 5G System Architecture Team’s mission is to increase the business value of Oracle Communications network products for customers and Oracle by:

  • Ensuring the integrity and consistency of the product software and test architecture and design.

  • Evaluating and recommending new processes, technologies, and methods.

  • Maximizing the appropriate use of Oracle assets, and minimizing duplication.

  • Bridging groups within the product development organization, across the business unit, and across Oracle.

  • Participating in industry standards work groups applicable to Communications 4G and 5G network products.

  • Contributing to customer engagement activities for Communications 4G & 5G solutions.

Role Summary

The primary technology focus of this role is telecommunications 5G routing and selection network functions, such as the Network Repository Function (NRF), the Service Communication Proxy (SCP), the Network Slice Selection Function (NSSF), and associated end-to-end solutions. Broad knowledge of topics such as 4G and 5G telecommunications core networks, service-based architecture, cloud native principals, high-availability, security, networking, scaled agile frameworks, and CI/CD is highly desired.

The role is technical hands-on in nature and involves providing software architectural leadership to multidisciplinary agile development projects, with an emphasis on architecting, designing, and prototyping communications solutions, components, and tools for deployments in both public and private clouds.

Typical Duties and Responsibilities

  • Using business goals, requirements, and priorities as inputs, architect and design complex and innovative 5G routing and selection technical solutions leveraging Oracle offerings and open source components to address critical business needs of Oracle customers.

  • Lead and participate in highly technical discussions.

  • Assess communications solutions either in pre-sales or post-sales stages and provide guidance to internal and external parties to ensure successful implementations and uptake of best practices.

  • Manage competing, quickly-changing priorities effectively and handle input from many internal and external collaborators and stakeholders.

  • Structure and execute plans for a given project in challenging environments with a minimum of guidance.

  • Closely collaborate with high-caliber peers and a variety of teams and groups in a highly dynamic environment – Developers, Product Managers, Senior Leaders, Pre-Sales, Consulting, Documentation, Support, among others.

  • Identify recurring patterns and solutions and generalize these for broader re-use across the entire ecosystem – Oracle, Partners, and Customers.

  • Identify common pain points in Oracle Communications products and solutions, and propose alternatives to improve them.

  • Monitor and analyze industry trends, innovative technology offerings, and development best practices, and propose strategies by which Oracle Communications teams and products should leverage them.

Desired Qualifications , Skills, and Experience:

  • Strong foundation in software architecture, design, and coding of complex software systems.

  • Experience in one or more of the following programming languages: Java, C , Python, SQL, Go, and C.

  • Good understanding of cloud architecture and hybrid on-premises / cloud designs. An ideal candidate has a working knowledge of public clouds, and particularly Oracle Cloud.

  • Strong technical skills and a system-wide vision including all aspects of the cloud ecosystem – networking, security, integration, CI/CD among others.

  • An ideal candidate has technical and functional experience in 4G and/or 5G telecommunication core networks. Familiarity with the 3GPP 5G control plane network functions, and in particular NRF, SCP, and NSSF, is a plus.

  • Highly motivated, self-starter with a quick learning style and a strong ambition to remain up to date with current technologies and trends. An ideal candidate understands the need to balance continuous personal development and non-work life with the pressures of delivery.

  • Exceptional analytical and critical reasoning skills capable of flexible and lateral thinking. An ideal candidate has excellent problem-solving skills, is able to develop and analyze options/hypotheses objectively, and is able to apply industry-leading practices.

  • Ability to actively lead technical discussions with customers, partners, and other Oracle teams. An ideal candidate has good communication skills (both written and verbal) with the ability to effectively communicate with customers and executives, succinctly articulate business impacts, translate technical information into layperson and business terms, concisely ‘storyboard' complex problems, solutions, and approaches in a manner appropriate for diverse audiences. The candidate ideally has the ability to produce high-quality deliverables that can be used as architectural runway by product development teams.

  • An ideal candidate is able to serve as technical strategist, advisor, and engineering mentor, and has a natural inclination to coach – through training, public forums, blogs, and conferences.

  • An ideal candidate has a basic understanding of CNCF open source projects and non-Oracle 5G products and solutions.
