About Oracle Managed Cloud Services (OMCS)

Oracle Managed Cloud Services plays a critical role in delivering and supporting best-of-breed cloud solutions to Oracle customers.

Oracle Cloud is the industry's broadest and most integrated public cloud. It offers best-in-class services across software as a service (SaaS), platform as a service (PaaS), and infrastructure as a service (IaaS), and even lets you put Oracle Cloud in your own data center. Oracle Cloud helps organizations drive innovation and business transformation by increasing business agility, lowering costs, and reducing IT complexity.

The Oracle Cloud has shown strong adoption, supporting 70 million users and more than 30 billion transactions each day. It runs in 19 data centers around the world.

Our team provides 24/7/365, follow-the-sun coverage while pushing the boundaries of what can be accomplished in the cloud. Advancing cloud computing means great growth opportunities, and highly rewarding experiences working in our expanding computing environments and DEVOPS teams.

About The Job

A unique opportunity to join a rapidly growing world-class team to engineer cutting edge Oracle Cloud technologies and infrastructure that make up the Oracle Cloud solutions. As part of the OMCS team, you will be continually challenged and have an opportunity to contribute to the Oracle Cloud success every day, working closely with the development partners.

As a OMCS Engineer, you will solve interesting technical challenges by defining, designing, deploying, and troubleshooting key Oracle Cloud services, platforms, and infrastructure, always thinking about reliability, scalability, resilience, security, and performance.

The ideal candidate for this engaging and visible technical leadership role would have the experience of a Database and Application Administrator with Oracle ERPs, Fusion Middleware, Business Intelligence softwares (OBIEE, Hyperion), DEVOPS and automation, the wits of a systems and infrastructure whiz, and the courage of a spirited "closer". All these qualities bundled up in an affable communicator in order to make our Oracle Cloud customers successful.

What You'll Do

Service Ownership -You will be part of the OMCS team, whose mission is the shared full stack ownership of a collection of services and/or technology areas. As a IT Sr. Principal Consultant, you will be utilized as the "proactive" technical support, business solution implementation and risk manager to assure the highest level of customer satisfaction. You will create/contribute to automated technology and instrumentation to diagnose, document, and resolve/avoid customer issues. This position is regarded by Oracle, our partners, and our customers as the technical support expert in Oracle product usage in complex, open systems implementation environments.

Ownership Scope - You will understand the end-to-end configuration, technical dependencies, and overall behavioral characteristics of the production services you own. You will have the responsibility to ensure that services are delivered to be mission critical with focus on security, resiliency, scale, and performance.

Automation - You will have a clear understanding of automation and orchestration principles, and will be eager to automate, wherever and whenever the possibility arises, while simultaneously eliminating technical debt. Automation must be part of your DNA.

Prevention - Once you have expertly resolved an issue, you will immediately work on how to more quickly resolve the problem next time, with the goal to eventually prevent the problem happening ever again.

Technical Experts - As service owner, you are the ultimate escalation point for complex or critical issues that have not yet been documented as SOPs for Level1 staff. You will usually get called in during major incidents as an SME, when the source of a problem is unclear. You will have the deep understanding of service topology and their dependencies required to troubleshoot issues and define mitigations.
