To ensure that we can do this we need a highly motivated, energetic individual to join Oracle EMEA as Business Development Manager/Director (Individual Contributor).
The role will focus in the go-to-market of Oracle’s Cloud Native and Integration offering with special emphasis on WebLogic in the cloud. We are looking for applicants with significant experience in WebLogic and a history of successful consultative selling into large organisations and those that demonstrate hands on experience.
