The shared services portfolio includes the following: ML and analytics services, shared application services, application development frameworks (front and back-end) and associated tooling, all built on Oracle's Platform as a Service (PaaS), and Infrastructure as a service (IaaS).

The role will include working with teams to migrate their existing solutions to shared infrastructure (often including complex migrations), and providing product guidance for feature requirements as the GBU teams remake their product portfolios to fully cloud native products. The position will report to a Senior Technical Product Manager building a team to manage and coordinate GBU adoption and uptake of the tools, frameworks, patterns, and services our organization delivers to accelerate customer software delivery. The Technical Product Manager is responsible for engaging with GBU Development and Product Managers and Oracle teams across the company to accelerate development and enhance the developer experience.

  • Identify common pain points in Oracle products and solutions and propose practical alternatives to improve them.
  • Establish relationships and feedback channels into multiple product management and product engineering organizations, ultimately resulting in product improvements and innovations.
The selected candidate will play a Technical Product Manager role with strong tracking and reporting skills, basic understanding of several cloud technologies and products, and has a sense for market trends and emerging technologies and tools within and outside of Oracle's portfolio.

The Technical Product Manager must have communication skills (both written and verbal) with the ability to effectively communicate with customers, succinctly articulate business impacts, translate technical information into layperson and business terms, and concisely 'storyboard' complex problems, solutions, and approaches for the customer and management.
