For Claire Marquez, HCM Cloud Sales Manager, working in the Oracle SaaS Applications team is an opportunity to get closer to customers and understand their challenges better, all to drive them towards success. Read our interview with Claire and discover what a sales career at Oracle can do for you.
Why did you join the Oracle SaaS Applications team?
At the time, there was so much buzz around Oracle’s Applications cloud. I knew it would be an exciting time to be part of the first Oracle Cloud Applications team.
How is it like to work in your team?
Being in an environment where you’re free to strategize and work with a supportive team makes your job easier. Oracle, as a whole, supports work-life balance and empowers women at work. This empowers you as an individual to be more effective in your role, while continuing your other passions in life.
On a daily basis, it’s not about the product you carry. Neither about you as an Account Manager. It’s about losing yourself and becoming your customer, denying yourself of the shortcuts and tech talk that makes no sense to them. It’s about your creativity at work, your patience, your empathy, your genuine desire to help improve your customer’s current processes, and their challenges. It’s about you as a person learning from your customers and understanding them more over trekking heights, biking on long rugged paths, or simply exchanging stories about travel or pets.
Why do you enjoy working in the Oracle SaaS Applications team?
The team works and supports each other thoroughly. What inspires me is the exemplary commitment, patience, and dedication the team puts in every single deal on which they work. The professionalism and team spirit is apparent in how they collaborate to ensure everyone is successful.
