Oracle is continuing its push in the direction of the cloud by opening up and staffing a new engineering centre in Seattle.
The firm said it will be looking to hire 100 cloud technologists to work at the centre and extend its cloud technology team, and will begin the hiring process at the HackerX recruitment event.
Oracle added that it would use the centre to increase its cloud-computing capabilities, and will install two veteran cloud techs as the leaders of a highly skilled team.
"We are building a team of rock star engineers who want to shape the next-generation, cutting-edge public cloud," said Don Johnson, senior director of product development and one of those veterans.
"Equally important, this is a unique opportunity to build the culture from the ground up, like a startup, but with the resources of a company and customer base that can influence the market."
Prashant Ketkar, vice president of product management at Oracle, added: "Oracle is committed to providing organisations with the industry's broadest and most advanced cloud portfolio.
"By opening this state-of-art facility, we are equipped to aggressively build out new cloud services. Seattle has a deep pool of talented engineers with its rich history of innovation and is the perfect location for us to harness that talent in order to accelerate our cloud investments."
Last month Oracle ramped up its cloud tools with Enterprise Manager 12c Release 4. It estimated that cloud adoption could help firms save around half of their costs for management and admin.
