Competing against the American cloud computing company, Salesforce, Oracle is hiring another 5,000 employees.
The hiring surge is in a bid to help Oracle’s fast-growing business, by increasing its revenue by 58% in the quarter reported in June, compared to last year’s statistics.
According to Bloomberg, the multinational computer technology corporation heard that CEO at Salesforce, Marc Benioff, revealed he was on a track to generate US$10billion in cloud revenue this year – “Oracle’s main goal”.
Oracle co-founder, Larry Ellison, said to Mercury News: “We sold more than US$2billion in cloud recurring revenue and we’re on our way to surpassing Salesforce in the SaaS market.”
Joyce Westerdahl, Oracle vice president for human resources, added to Sys.con Media: “Central to Oracle’s success is our empowered, inspired and engaged workforce.
“We’re hiring experienced sales and engineering professionals eager to contribute to Oracle’s cloud growth and champion our products.
“We are also recruiting high-performing recent college graduates and offering them a world-class training program to prepare them for a career in the technology industry.”
