Job Description

OCI Incident Response is the first line of defense for maintaining the high availability of Oracle’s cloud.

Oracle’s Cloud is state-of-the-art and constantly evolving. When it experiences issues, your team will respond within minutes to ensure customer impact is mitigated. This experience will expose you to the inner workings of OCI’s systems and organizations. You will interact with and influence leaders from across the Oracle business and will drive broad cross-organization programs meant to iteratively improve OCI-wide service availability. We are an agile team with significant impact. If you want to be a part of a fast-moving team breaking new ground, we would like to speak with you!
