Not so long ago in a city not so far away by Carlos Martin

This is the story of how the EMEA Presales Center turned an Oracle intern into a trusted technology advisor for both Oracle’s Sales and customers.

It was the summer of 2011 when I was finishing my Computer Engineering studies as well as my internship at Oracle when I was offered what could possibly be THE dream job for any young European Computer Engineer. Apart from that, it also seemed like the role was particularly tailored to me as I could leverage almost everything I learned at University and during the internship. And all of it in one of the best cities to live in, not only from my home country but arguably from Europe: Malaga!

A day at EPC

As part of the EPC Technology pillar, and later on completely focused on WebCenter, there was no way to describe a normal day on the job as each day had something unique. Some days I was researching documentation in order to elaborate accurate answers for a customer’s question within a Request for Information or Proposal (RFI/RFP), other days I was doing heavy programming in order to bring a Proof of Concept (PoC) for a customer to life and last not but least, some days I presented to the customer via webconference the demo I built for them the past weeks. So as you can see, the role has research, development and presentation, could you ask for more?

Well, don’t worry because there IS more...

Working for an IT Sales team in Prague

Do you see yourself working within an IT company? What about working within a team that sells hardware?

I have never imagined myself being part of an IT team as I was part of another world. My name is Violeta and I started my career one year ago within Oracle. I graduated from the University of Economics in Prague and I studied International Trade. You can see that I didn’t have any IT background, but I definitely wouldn’t miss the opportunity of getting a job within Oracle. This was actually my dream: working in a big international corporation.

I am a young lady that is working within the Hardware team. Does it seem challenging?

Combining Technical and Business aspects in your job? Apply now.

Hi, I am Ben. I am working as a Pre-Sales Consultant for Customer Relationship Management (CRM) in Malaga as part of the EMEA Pre-Sales Center (EPC). I did my Bachelor in Wirtschaftsinformatik (Business Informatics) at the University of Applied Sciences in Kufstein, Austria. I got to know Spain for the first time when I studied in Granada for a half year during this Bachelor and definitely wanted to go back. When I graduated I moved back to Granada again and did a distant learning Master for 2 years in Business Informatics through the Ferdinand Porsche Fern FH in Vienna.

During my Master I started looking for a job and came across the role as a CRM Pre-Sales Consultant through one of the Oracle recruiters in Germany. I immediately felt this was a role that was an almost 100% fit with my studies as it combined both technical and business aspects. After going through the recruitment process I started on the 1st of November 2010.

My job consists of remotely supporting the Pre-Sales field consultants in Germany and Switzerland. This means I am working on answering questions from customers on a functional level related to the Oracle CRM product stack and also preparing and demonstrating Oracle CRM Products to potential customers so that they can see what we can offer. To create a good bond with my colleagues in the field I’m flying over to Germany and Switzerland 2-5 times a year. I also work closely with the EPC teams in Bucharest, Romania and in Bangalore, India.


The Pre-Sales role gives you a very broad insight in the customer’s business, economy related aspects and the Oracle products. After this role you can, for instance, move to a role as Field Pre-Sales Consultant in the country you originally come from, or potentially move to a Sales or Consulting role. Other doors, for example into product management, are open as well. As soon as you have a foot in Oracle you can achieve nearly everything if you really want and work for it.

“Don’t ask for permission, ask for forgiveness”

What I have experienced in the last year working in the EPC team is that Oracle is a very entrepreneurial company, where you get the chance to work independently and come up with ideas and suggestions for improvement. My manager told me from the very beginning that I can see Oracle as my company and act this way. That is something I really like. As an example, I am part of a project group focussing on internal communications within the EPC team next to my job which gives me a chance to work with new social media technology and platforms available internally already to get a glimpse of how it works, before our customers start using it.

Malaga, Andalusia

Living in Malaga, and having Andalusia on your finger tips is a great experience. Also the office in Malaga has grown rapidly this year from 50 to 300 employees, and consists of employees from a large number of different countries in Europe. So the atmosphere is very international. I speak English, German and Spanish every day. I pass by the reception and say “¡Buenos días!, I walk upstairs and welcome my team saying “Good Morning!” and then I pick up the phone and say “Guten Morgen!”. The EPC team itself consists of all young professionals.

If you want to join the EPC team and work and live in Andalusia we have a great opportunity for German speakers in the CRM, but also in the Technology Pre-Sales team at the moment. In the technology oriented role you will focus on the Database or Service Oriented Architecture related product stack of Oracle. Therefore this role is as well technical, as it is business focussed.
