T he Oracle Cloud

Infrastructure (OCI) team can provide you the opportunity to build and operate

a suite of massive scale, integrated cloud services in a broadly distributed,

multi-tenant cloud environment. OCI is committed to providing the best in

cloud products that meet the needs of our customers who are tackling some of

the world’s biggest challenges.

We offer unique opportunities for smart, hands-on

engineers with the expertise and passion to solve difficult problems in

distributed highly available services and virtualized infrastructure. At

every level, our engineers have a significant technical and business

impact designing and building innovative new systems to power our

customer’s business critical applications.

Oracle is building from scratch, an

Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) Public Cloud, and a large part of that

effort is building a state of the art networking and load balancing capabilities.

We are looking for exceptional software engineers with backgrounds in

networking, kernel internals and distributed systems.

The Load Balancer team is building

a high performance, scale out and high availability offering that will be the

foundation of a modern cloud system. You will be a part of the team founded by

industry veterans from AWS, Google, OpenStack, Joyent and others, that will

create the first enterprise-grade public cloud service. We believe that this

and storage systems interact and change the way applications are built.

We have engineering work at every

layer of the stack, from the REST API to distributed systems, kernel internals,

system tuning and performance. We are looking for teammates who are

interested in being part of a team that innovates from top to bottom, which

requires traversing from the customer experience down to bit twiddling in the

kernel. We believe that the only way to succeed is to own every part of the

problem and are creating a team that controls its own destiny. Our team is

located in the San Francisco Bay Area, with offices in Santa Clara and Oakland.
