Oracle announces cloud engineering center in San Francisco

Enterprise IT vendor Oracle today announced its cloud engineering center in San Francisco, the U.S.

The decision to hire Cloud engineers in San Francisco follows Oracle’s quarterly earnings driven by cloud revenue.

Earlier, Oracle said its Q2 revenues in fiscal 2015 from cloud software-as-a-service and platform-as-a-service increased to $361 million from $259 million. Cloud infrastructure-as-a-service revenue rose to $155 million from $97 million.

Oracle Q2 revenues up 3%, net income dips 2%

Oracle said the San Francisco engineering center will be used for public cloud product development with a special focus on next-generation platforms and infrastructure.

The company is also expanding in Berkeley.


This week, Oracle is hosting HackerX events in San Francisco and Santa Clara to offer interview and networking opportunities with Oracle recruiters and Oracle executives.

Peter S Magnusson will take charge of Oracle’s engineering expansion throughout San Francisco and Silicon Valley, including Santa Clara, Redwood Shores, and Berkeley in California, as well as Boulder Creek, Colorado, and Seattle, Washington.

Oracle will also expand international development centers in Bristol, UK as well as Cape Town, South Africa.
