By Maria Sandu on Feb 25, 2014
We’ve asked Konstantin, Software Development Direct at
Oracle Saint Petersburg to share an insight into his career path within the
company and also to give us some information about the team he is leading. Read on the interview and add your comments below!
Hi Konstantin! Thank you for accepting to do this interview for the Recruitment team! Let's start with introducing yourself and giving us an overview of your current role at Oracle!
“Hello everybody! My name is Konstantin, but my friends call me Kostya. I am part of the Product Development organization focusing on Java Platform and mainly Java ME and Small Embedded Product and Tools development. Currently, I am in a Director position managing the team of senior engineers and managers in the St.Petersburg Development Center at Oracle Russia.
So, when did you start at Oracle and what has been your evolution so far?
My team and I have joined Oracle through the Sun Microsystems acquisition. I was in a Senior SW Development Manager role at that time and I have been recently promoted to the SW Development Director.
Tell us a few things about the organization that you’re leading and about the career opportunities.
Oracle always follows the high-tech trends and finds new market opportunities. We have recently started to look at the rapidly growing embedded market with the new concept of the "Internet of Things" where billion electronic devices that are around us could be connected and could generate the useful data to help, simplify and make safe and comfortable human's life. Such solutions are on demand in automotive, smart home, health care, industrial and many other businesses.
We believe that Oracle has the best set of products and platforms to introduce the ecosystem from the small chips generating the data up-to the big scale systems to identify, store and process the data.
My team is working on Small Embedded Java which is the target platform for the edge-devices generating the data and doing some basic business logic. This is a very small but also very important part of the big picture which brings a lot of new technical and business challenges and as a result potential career opportunities for the people involved into this fast growing business.
If I was looking for a job I would apply at Oracle because…
It is a very successful company with outstanding products portfolio developed by brilliant technical community and managed by a great team of professionals.
