We have exciting new opportunities opening up supporting Oracle's cloud business. So, if you are passionate, entrepreneurial, innovative, and believe in being consultative, value focused and having fun whilst you work, then this could be the perfect opportunity for you.
We believe that this architecture role requires a combination of both technical and soft skills. We expect every architect to have strong all-round technical skills, and we believe that the ability to engage with people, communicate an idea and build a consensus is just as important as getting the technical solution right.
You will be accountable for the solution architecture and deployment designs for cloud solutions that deliver against the customer's business goals and to ensure that functional and non-functional requirements, such as security, network, performance, resilience, service management are fully understood and mapped to Cloud Oracle solutions.
Cloud solution architects take responsibility for architecture from the initial idea through the deployment. You will be involved from the start of a customer engagement, through the design phase and will continue your involvement until the customer has a working solution on Oracle cloud.
As a High Performance Computing specialist, you will collaborate with customers, partners and fellow SAs to tackle large-scale analytical & simulation challenges and drive the adoption of Oracle's Cloud portfolio. You will own the technical engagement and ultimate success around specific HPC projects. You should be as comfortable discussing complex technical details with a room full of engineers as you are briefing an executive audience.
You will help ensure solutions are fully adopted, drive positive customer outcomes and also generate business and IT value from building long term customer engagement.
In Oracle, you will have a high degree of responsibility and autonomy , and 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 hundreds of architects who are always very keen to support and help others

You will engage directly with the customer to understand their requirements from Oracle cloud and to identify workloads suitable for implementation. With your understanding of the customers' requirements, you will build a comprehensive and effective solution architecture.
You will lead the architecture task within a highly collaborative virtual team that includes product specialists, domain specialists and implementors. With the team, you will map the solution onto Oracle cloud services and define a target deployment architecture and an implementation plan that delivers a best practice solution for the customer.
You will make extensive use of standard reference architectures and the architectures you build will be required to be of the highest quality and to adhere to Oracle standards.
You will work with the sales team to prepare and deliver compelling customer presentations that focus on the benefits of the solution and how it delivers customer value.
You will work with the implementation team to ensure that the target solution is delivered to the agreed specification, and you will continue to engage with the customer through the implementation until the working solution is in successful use by the customer.
You will be expected to 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 be expected 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.
