The Final Frontier
Hi there! My name is Mani Rajah; I’m a Principal Software Engineer in the Virtual Networking Control Plane group. I design, develop, test, deploy, and maintain one of the core pieces that make the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) offering. Having been with the competition for several years, I always wondered how it would be to work on their products while they were still building them. OCI offers that experience right now, and will probably be the last Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) product in a while to come with so much ground to cover, in terms of development.
Impact in the Making
We’re still in the early stages of OCI, so seeing the impact it has on customers is hard. However, the features I deliver are the ones customers actively await. Simplifying their use cases gives you a sense of accomplishment. As more and more companies move from traditional on-premises systems to the cloud, the need to support different use cases widens. Oracle has thousands of customers running their databases and building pieces of networking primitives. Helping them move their loads to the cloud securely and conveniently is the best part of this job.
Growth in Balance
In spite of having so much on which to catch up, the work-life balance at Oracle is great. It’s always nice when the work is rewarding, without compromising your personal life. We have so much to build. I can choose from across the company in what to participate. What you learn here will propel your career for years to come, and help you lead large initiatives in any new company to which you move in the future. Lots of development work, reasonable operations, great work-life balance, and amazing benefits…what’s not to love about that?
