Why did you join the Database Development team?

Oracle’s long history of leadership in the industry made me want to work on its Database product, which all mission-critical enterprises use. I’m lucky to have the opportunity to learn directly from the pioneers, and develop and test cutting-edge software products alongside them. Our team’s experience feeds back into other engineering groups within the company, as well as to customers running self-managed installations.

How’s it like to work in your team?

In a team with diverse knowledge such as ours, every day is a learning experience. We support each other and consider all suggestions to bring everyone’s knowledge into a greater innovation. Management encourages us to have a sense of ownership of our work and our work environment. We create partnerships between team members to grow and learn new skills, showing each other how to meet our goals within the context of meeting the organization’s own goals.

Why do you enjoy working at Oracle?

Because of its dynamic and professional environment, which gives way to great development possibilities amongst multicultural colleagues, exposing you to new ideas and experiences—Oracle’s culture of tolerance helps overcome cultural barriers. Of great importance is also Oracle’s conscious efforts to create a healthy work environment for women, with zero tolerance against harassment and role-based discrimination.
