Oracle is seeking Auckland and Wellington-based salespeople following the official integration of the company with Sun Microsystems, which it acquired last year.
Oracle’s Melbourne-based principal recruiter for Asia Pacific, David Talamelli, tweeted earlier this month, “New Sales Positions in NZ (Auckland and Wellington) for Oralce’s [sic] new Storage/Server Business (SUN) - email firstname.lastname@example.org”.
As well as the storage and services business recruitment, another of Talamelli’s tweets shows the company was in late February seeking a senior ECM (enterprise content management) sales representative, based in Auckland.
Oracle’s ANZ spokesperson Gareth Llewellyn tweeted on 1 March about the two companies coming together.
“Welcome Sun! Formal Legal Entity Combination today in Australia and New Zealand for Oracle|Sun,” the entry read.
Oracle + Sun Welcome Events are set to be held in Auckland on 21 April and then in four Australian centres. They are part of a world tour that started in the US in early March.
Oracle spokesperson Penny Wolf says the company doesn’t traditionally discuss headcounts or personnel movements but says, “it is true that you will see promotion that Oracle NZ is hiring”. She adds the company is hiring globally and that CEO Larry Ellison says in Sun’s integration webcasts that Oracle will hire more people than the company will let go.
