We are expanding our Cloud organization, with the option to be remote or based in Downtown Seattle. Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) is constructed with an entrepreneurial spirit that promotes an energetic and creative environment. We are unencumbered and will need your contribution to make it a world class engineering center with the focus on excellence.

We are looking for an experienced and senior-level Technical Program Manager to join the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Group in Seattle, under the centralized PMO team (it's not your standard PMO!). The PMO team at OCI steers the ship, driving results for the business by partnering with any team required to deliver results – one key program we own is Release Management.

Specifically, we are seeking an experienced, results-oriented Technical Program Manager focused on Launch Readiness and Release Management. We are seeking a highly skilled resource that has proven success in driving highly complex, enterprise products from inception through completion. We operate in a Dev Ops model, so this will not be your standard release team.

This is a very hands-on contributor role that seeks someone who thrives in a fast-paced, dynamic environment and is as comfortable digging into requirements and development details as they are managing day-to-day tasks. You will partner with every team in Oracle to make these projects happen. The space is fun, large, cross cutting and complex.

You will manage the development and implementation process for all aspects of interdepartmental delivery, plan and direct schedules and monitor budget/spending. We work on true critical programs and that means support, help, partnership and alignment in the investment.
