Life at Oracle: a sneak peek at working in Oracle Direct's Dublin office

How does it feel to work for one of the most iconic IT companies in the world? Take a look at Oracle Direct’s newest office space in Dublin and explore for yourself!

Standing desks are great for keeping the high-level energy here!

One of the first things you’ll notice when you step into the Oracle Direct Dublin office is the bursting of activity. The bright and airy environment perfectly matches our company’s exciting culture. Despite the employee hustle and bustle, the office manages to stay reasonably quiet.

The Dublin office boasts several CollabPods for impromptu 2-6 person meetings, as well as an informal Training/Presentation/VideoCon space to simplify collaboration. Oracle Direct has opted for bold and modern design elements with colorful splashes to help inspire employee creativity and innovation.

Customization and flexibility remains the cornerstone for the Oracle Direct Dublin office. Each work space is equipped with 100% automatic height adjustable seating as well as double monitor arms for specific roles. So whether our employees prefer to work while standing or sitting, the choice is theirs, all thanks to the touch of a button which raises/lowers the desk.

Need to step outside to get some fresh air? The Dublin office offers a great walking trail for its employees. We currently have a Walking Meeting Challenge to help make meetings healthier and more productive.

Congratulations to Joana, the Most Helpful person in Oracle Direct EMEA Q3

We are pleased that the Oracle Direct employees are committed to helping their colleagues whenever they see an opportunity to do so! Every quarter we invite them to nominate a colleague for the ‘Most Helpful’ Person in the team award and we’re always amazed by the huge number of positive answers and the great feedback people give about their peers. We congratulate Joana for having been awarded the ‘Most Helpful’ Person FY14Q3!.

Joana is part of the Core Technology Sales French Team and she’s an asset to the EMEA group! She is always helping and taking time to answer her peers’ questions. With a very curious personality, she is aware of the Oracle rules regarding approvals, territories, communication plan, HR etc and she’s always willing to share her knowledge. Her advice is always appreciated and wise and she’s not just helping her team, but every single person who’s coming to her. Her leadership and communication skills are very strong and also highly appreciated by her colleagues.

It was a challenge to select just a few thoughts out of the huge number of answers we got from Joana's colleagues. However, here's what they say about her:

Joana is just the most helpful person I know in the office. If I have a question, especially about the process, she is the first person I will go to ask for help. Actually, all my colleagues advised me to do so because they do the exact same! Joana always finds a way to dedicate time to others, and with a smile on top of that!...
