Job Description

Group Description

The Oracle Communications 5G and Policy Management System Architecture Team's mission is to increase the business value of Oracle Communications solutions for customers and Oracle by:

  • Ensuring the integrity and consistency of products and cloud services.
  • Evaluating and recommending new processes, technologies, patterns, and methods.
  • Maximizing the appropriate use of Oracle assets and minimizing duplication.
  • Bridging groups within the product development organization, across the business unit, and across Oracle.
  • Identifying and communicating engineering best practices for software development, testing, and automation.
  • Participating in industry standards work groups applicable to 5G and policy management.
  • Contributing to customer engagement activities for 5G and policy management solutions.

Role Summary

The primary technology focus of this role involves the Oracle Communications Cloud Native Core and Policy Management products and associated end-to-end solutions. Broad and deep knowledge of topics such as 4G and 5G telecommunications core networks, service-based architecture, cloud-native principals, high-availability, security, networking, scaled agile frameworks, and CI/CD is highly desired.

The role is technical hands-on in nature and involves providing software architectural leadership to multidisciplinary agile development projects, with an emphasis on architecting, designing, and prototyping communications solutions, components, and tools for deployments in both public and private clouds.

Desired Qualifications, Skills, and Experience:

  • Strong foundation in software architecture, design, and coding of complex software systems.
  • Experience in one or more of the following programming languages: Java, C++, Python, SQL, Go, and C.
  • Good understanding of cloud architecture and hybrid on-premises / cloud designs. An ideal candidate has a working knowledge of public clouds, and particularly Oracle Cloud.
  • Strong technical skills and a system-wide vision including all aspects of the cloud ecosystem - networking, security, integration, CI/CD among others.
  • An ideal candidate has technical and functional experience in 4G and/or 5G telecommunication core networks. Familiarity with the 3GPP 5G control plane network functions is a plus.
  • An ideal candidate has experience in highly-distributed, highly-performant, geo-redundant software systems.
  • Highly motivated, self-starter with a quick learning style and a strong ambition to remain up to date with current technologies and trends. An ideal candidate understands the need to balance continuous personal development and non-work life with the pressures of delivery.
  • Exceptional analytical and critical reasoning skills capable of flexible and lateral thinking. An ideal candidate has excellent problem-solving skills, develops and analyzes options/hypotheses objectively, and is able to apply industry best practices.
  • Ability to actively lead technical discussions with customers, partners, and other Oracle teams. An ideal candidate has good communication skills (both written and verbal) with the ability to effectively communicate with customers and executives, succinctly articulate business impacts, translate technical information into layperson and business terms, concisely 'storyboard' complex problems, solutions, and approaches in a manner appropriate for diverse audiences.
  • An ideal candidate produces high-quality deliverables that can be used as architectural runway by product development teams.
  • An ideal candidate serves as technical strategist, advisor, and engineering mentor, and has a natural inclination to coach - through training, public forums, blogs, and conferences.
  • An ideal candidate has a basic understanding of CNCF open-source projects and non-Oracle 5G products and solutions.
