Sr. User Experience Designer - Cloud PaaS - UX Platform

Preferred Qualifications

Every day, enterprises around the

world focus on how to help their employees work simpler and smarter. And while

enterprises are as diverse as the people in them, ranging from global

manufacturing concerns, to healthcare companies taking care of the elderly, to renowned

universities, and even one of the fastest growing cities in the world, they all

share many core needs. They need to take care of their employees and their

families by putting them in control of their benefits. They need to connect employees

with their customers so they in turn can thrive. They need to thoughtfully manage

their valuable resources. They need to work efficiently with the vendors they

depend on. And so much more.

Helping everyone work simpler and

smarter means letting enterprises focus on what makes each of them special.

They focus on what they’re best at, and in turn, let Oracle do the rest. The

scope of our opportunity is enormous.

At Oracle, we’re committed to creating

a state-of-the-art consumer-grade enterprise experience that connects, empowers

and delights our users, and is the

factor that distinguishes our software from the competition.

Yes. We’re absolutely serious.

And we can’t do it without your help.

We need thoughtful, talented, multi-faceted

user experience designers who love empowering technology users with high

quality interaction and visual design to bring their creative ideas and

their hard work to join our team.

Here’s the kind of person we’re looking for.

You thrive on working well withothers. You

make the people around you better. You love to collaborate with designers, user

researchers, engineers, product managers, executives, and inspire them to do

their best.

You’re a full-stack userexperience designer. You

look at interaction design, visual design and aesthetics, typography, motion, 3D,

ambient interaction, human factors, and more as tools in the UX designer’s

toolkit. You may have strengths in some of these areas, and want to learn more

in others, but you know how to talk about each and work with your colleagues to

combine them all into an experience that delights.

You get stuff done.

You’re a fantastic storyteller. You

know that our products tell our customers a story through the user experience.

You won’t rest until that story is a compelling one.

You love rules and you knowwhen to break them. You

think systemically because you know that creating a coherent experience

requires it. But you know when the system needs to expand to accommodate a

user’s varied conceptual model. And you know when to do something completely

unique to create an arresting and product-defining moment in the product that

makes users ooh and aah.

You don’t already know everythingand you love to learn. You’re inspired by helping users solve their

problems. You love finding out you’re wrong. You consume large amounts of

quantitative and qualitative data to constantly refine your assumptions.

And finally, you want to bepart of creating dramatic and impactful change at a company that is committedto becoming a light unto others when it comes to user experience design.

You might

have learned your craft via formal training or via on-the-job training. For

most candidates, it’s a combination of both. As long as you’ve got experience

and passion doing this work at the highest level, we’d love to talk to talk to

you and see a portfolio of the work you’re most proud of.

What will you do as a userexperience designer at Oracle?

  • You

will dive deep into one or more of our many products.

  • You

will collaborate closely with our partners in product management to understand

the customers who use it, empathize with them, and imagine creative ways we can

make their work lives dramatically better.

  • You

will partner closely with your fellow designers to innovate by designing

coherent, seamless, and emotionally resonant, state-of-the-art user experiences

for our users.

  • You

will work closely with your partners in engineering to take your pictures and

turn them into reality.

  • You

will partner closely with your colleagues in user research to get customer

feedback on your designs, find out where you’ve improved their lives, and find

out where you have more work to do.

  • You

will learn, grow, and be challenged.

  • And

sometimes, you will hit bumps in the road. But then you’ll remember, that

you’re here to be a founding member of Oracle’s new design culture and help

turn Oracle into the place you love to work and have one of the best

professional experiences of your life.

And if you really

want, we’ll teach you how to sail.
