The term “Oracle developer” can encompass a wide range of roles and technologies. In general, though, Oracle developers are tasked with defining, developing, and maintaining whatever Oracle applications a company uses. Although many of these existing jobs focus on Oracle’s on-premises platforms, the tech giant’s push into the cloud (and hybridized environments) means that any developer in this category will need to become increasingly familiar with Oracle’s cloud services.
