Another California Company to Expand Big Time – in Texas

Breaking news from the Austin American Statesman:

Oracle Corp. will build a huge, new corporate campus on 27 acres in Austin. With the new campus, Oracle plans to grow its Austin workforce by 50 percent over the next few years. The move expands the presence of another rapidly growing California-based technology giant in Central Texas, as companies including Apple Inc., Google and Facebook are aggressively ramping up their workforces there.

Scott Armour, senior vice president of Oracle Direct, the firm’s cloud sales organization, said, “Our state-of-the-art campus will be designed to inspire, support and attract top talent – with a special focus on the needs of millennials.”

Jobs at the new campus will be primarily sales-oriented, lead qualification, prospecting and technical support. Founded in 1977, Oracle, one of the world’s leading software companies, is based in Redwood City in San Mateo County.
