Oracle is at the forefront of the digital revolution. We are empowering nearly half a million

businesses across the globe to turn untapped potential into real business value. Would you like to join us in connecting the biggest enterprises of today, with the tools to compete in the digital economy of tomorrow?

We have exciting new opportunities in expanding Oracle’s cloud business. So, if you are

passionate, entrepreneurial, innovative, consultative, value focused, and want to have fun whilst you work, then this could be the perfect opportunity for you.

The role will be delivered remotely from your home and, while there may be some visits to an office or customer premises, we believe that these will be relatively rare for the foreseeable future. As nearly all your daily interactions will be on Zoom, you will need a good internet connection. You have the opportunity to manage your own time and work hours can have a degree of flexibility.

This architecture role comprises a combination of both technical and soft skills. If you have

strong all-round technical skills, the ability to engage with people, can build trusted

relationships, communicate ideas, and build consensus, then you are just the kind of person we are looking for.

Your contribution will be pivotal in helping customers move their applications to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. Engaging with customers to understand their current deployment, designing a new OCI architecture, and building a migration roadmap for easy transition to cloud, are just some of the exciting challenges that await you. Your ability to design solutions that address non-functional requirements, such as security, network, performance, resilience, service management will ensure the best possible outcome for

our customers. Cloud solution architects take responsibility for architecture from the initial idea right through

to deployment. The sense of achievement in over-seeing the successful evolution of your solutions from inception to delivery is one of the most rewarding aspects of the role.

Driving customer success, through high quality architectural solutions, is the very cornerstone of our ambitions. You will be instrumental in the customer adoption of your solutions and, as a result, building long standing business and IT value for the customer.

At Oracle, you will enjoy a high degree of responsibility and autonomy. The rewards for your contribution include a compensation and benefits package, and a continuous training program in a structured environment, that are world class. We always aim to make Oracle a fun and rewarding place to work, and you will be joining a community of hundreds of like minded architects who are always very keen to support and help each other.

What You’ll Do

By engaging directly with the customer you will gain a deep understanding of their current environment and systems to enable you to build an architecture and roadmap to help the customer make best use of Oracle [email protected]

Leading the architectural engagement for a customer is a responsible position, however, you will not be alone. You will be supported by a highly collaborative virtual team that includes product specialists, domain specialists and implementors. With the team's support, you will have the opportunity to design the solution architecture, map it to Oracle [email protected], define a target deployment architecture, and then create an implementation plan that moves their database workloads to Oracle [email protected]

There are a range of standard reference architectures that you will be able to make extensive use of. This approach will mean that your proposed solutions are of the highest quality, and adhere to Oracle standards. In conjunction with the sales you team, one of your key responsibilities will be to deliver compelling customer presentations that illustrate the architectural vision and articulate the benefits and value delivered by your solutions.

Working with the implementation team you will help to ensure that the target solution is delivered to an agreed specification and then continue to engage with the customer through the implementation until the customer is confident to take on ownership of the solution themselves. You can look forward to being be an active participant in the Architecture Community within Oracle, both using and contributing to reference architectures. The Oracle architecture

community is friendly and supportive and you will be able to call upon the broader community for help, and in time contribute to the community.

Continually developing our architects is of critical importance to Oracle, and you will have the opportunity to put regular time aside to stay abreast of new technologies, new products and services, and to stay very much in touch with emerging technology both inside and outside Oracle. Oracle will provide training throughout your career to develop your technical skills and your soft skills.
