Oracle is set to hire 1,400 new cloud sales professionals in Europe, Middle East and Africa.
The new roles will be based in six locations: Amsterdam (The Netherlands); Cairo and Dubai (Middle East); Dublin (Ireland); Malaga (Spain) and Prague (Czech Republic).
The move to recruit 1,400 new cloud sales professionals into its EMEA follows a multi-billion dollar investment from Oracle in developing the portfolio of cloud computing services.
Oracle is also looking for experienced professionals from across the EMEA region, with two to three years’ experience to highly experienced senior sales professionals.
In addition to increasing its cloud sales workforce, Oracle said it will be investing in two new cloud sales centres in Amsterdam and Cairo and new offices opening this year in Dubai, Dublin and Prague.
Oracle currently offers more than 600 different cloud applications. Over the past six months, Oracle added nearly 1,500 new software as a service (SaaS) customers and more than 2,100 platform as a service (PaaS) customers.
