Please introduce yourself and your current role at Oracle.
I’m Vineet D. I joined Oracle ST, WebCenter Content Team here in Bangalore, India. Right after graduating from BITS Pilani Goa Campus in 2011, I chose Oracle over other offers.The transition from college to corporate life was a difficult one, but thanks to my wonderful team, I felt welcomed right from the first day.
Work @ Oracle
The majority of my tasks here, with the enterprise content management team includes enhancements and bug fixes. What makes it even more challenging is the sophistication and providing a scalable solution to the day to day problems. My responsibilities include improving Enterprise Content Management (ECM). Oracle’s ECM document renderer, lacked many features. As a part of making enhancements, I worked on manipulating text documents using iText APIs, merging pdf documents on the fly, providing dynamics editing facility to word documents etc. One of the major projects I completed was the support of chunked-transfer of data. Oracle’s content management server did not support HTTP/1.1 protocol completely. It required going through RFCs to understand the working functionality. I architected and deployed the code ensuring usability across different clients.
Why choose Oracle?
Oracle provides one of the best opportunities to learn various technologies across different platforms. What I like best about working at Oracle is the work life balance. With the option of flexible timings, one can easily enjoy planned evenings with friends or maybe working out at the fitness centre in your building. Be it the birthday celebrations at office or the day long team outing at a resort, It’s all together a different experience. Overall, you get to take full ownership of your project and they give you a free leash on how you design your enhancements/changes.
