People use Oracle technology to solve some of the world's hardest problems, so we have a lot of great stories to tell. We're seeking a writer with strong editorial experience to join our brand experience creative team. This writer will work with creative directors, editors, visual designers, and marketers to tell stories of technology innovation. If you have a passion for writing, creativity, multimedia, and technology, and want to help Oracle tell the world our stories, we’d love to hear from you. This job can be located anywhere in the U.S.
What we’re looking for in a writer: · You find the story. You’re an idea engine, and you ask and dig until you find the hook in every story. · You can bring together words, photography, video, illustrations, and infographics to bring a story to life. · You know how to write to an audience of business decision-makers (aka other humans with a job to do) by understanding their needs, goals, and dreams. · You thrive on collaboration and are not shy about working across a large organization to get good work done. · You dig technology and are interested in how tech can really help people—and you’d love to tell those kinds of stories about and for Oracle’s customers. · You are flexible and know how to get stuff done. On deadline. Whether it’s writing a paragraph in 15 minutes or an in-depth article over two weeks. · You know the rules—and when to break them. You know that your work needs to fit within the big picture of Oracle’s storytelling, but also that the best work often happens when testing the boundaries and trying new approaches. · You know you don’t know everything. To you, being wrong is just another opportunity to learn and get better at what you do. · And finally, you want to be part of creating dramatic change at a company that is committed to helping people solve some of the world’s hardest problems.

Basic qualifications: · Bachelor’s degree plus 5+ years’ professional experience writing for external publication, such as journalism or content marketing · Experience writing long-form articles, with a compelling portfolio of work · Ability to combine your editorial chops with Oracle’s business strategy, brand strategy, and customer insights to craft engaging and relevant stories · Ability to write in plain language to various audiences, from finance professionals to technologists · Skilled at generating ideas and pitching them to your peers, taking direction and feedback, and quickly applying guidance · Comfortable in a fast-paced, deadline-driven environment and able to manage multiple priorities
