Oracle India to hire nearly 300 sales people to boost cloud business

Oracle has announced significant recruitment plans that will add 1,000 new employees to its sales force across Asia Pacific (APAC). Nearly 300 of this specialized sales force for Cloud will be recruited in India. The expansion will help equip Oracle to drive growth and support demand for Oracle Cloud solutions across the region.

Each year, Oracle invests $5 billion in research and development to help ensure the company’s products are the most innovative in the industry. Today, the cloud opportunity in APAC is fueled by strong economic growth and robust broadband and mobile infrastructure. Oracle plans to capitalize on this with an expanded sales force.

Loic Le Guisquet, President, EMEA & APAC at Oracle, said: “Strong economic growth and the infinite possibilities that cloud technologies offer has created an unprecedented opportunity in Asia Pacific. Oracle is the only vendor who can give customers complete SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS capabilities – which uniquely positions us to be ‘The Cloud Company’. We are recruiting talent from across the region to create a world-class sales team that will help Oracle’s customers embrace the cloud. The opportunity that cloud technologies create is profound and there’s never been a better time to work for Oracle.”

Shailender Kumar, Vice President and Regional Managing Director, Oracle India, said: “Technology has played a defining role in shaping the economy of India and influencing young professionals and recent college graduates. We are looking for brilliant people to join Oracle, the Cloud Company. The right candidates for Oracle are individuals who are highly motivated, ambitious and who are eager to be a part of the company leading cloud transformation in India.”

Oracle’s recruitment efforts will primarily focus on growth in Australia, China, India, Korea, and the ASEAN countries; however, there are roles being created across the region.
