Who We Are

We will value different perspectives, learn from each other, and do hard things. Great people do great things.

  • Resist Passivity:We will always have a bias for action when innovating, communicating, and executing. Prioritize actions and results.

  • Always Be Scrappy:Like the researchers we serve, we need to take risks and make discoveries with limited resources. This will keep us efficient, nimble and more likely position us for success.

  • Community and Cloud-Adoption Centric:When we evaluate our activities, initiatives and plans, we will consistently prioritize developing nurturing and collaborative communities that inspire Oracle Cloud adoption and usage by our researchers and partners. Do what we do, and do it well.

  • Metrics Driven:When possible (and it almost always is), we will measure our outcomes and seek to understand the levers to success. Test assumptions and measure the right things. Follow the data.

  • Scale Smartly:The world generates hundreds of thousands of new research problems every year. We need to identify projects with a high likelihood of success and scale smartly through automation and self-service resources combined with consistent customer care through collaborations and communities. Grow big while nurturing deeply.
