June 16, 2014

Salt Lake City – The Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED) announced that Oracle plans to create approximately 351 jobs in the state of Utah over the next 10 years and will also open a new customer software support center in Salt Lake County.  This new facility will be focused on supporting and responding to customers’ needs and helping them maximize their experience with Oracle products.

“Utah is becoming known as a tech hotspot thanks to the continued growth of well-respected companies like Oracle in Utah,” said Spencer P. Eccles, executive director of GOED. “IT/software companies have chosen to locate or expand here because of the educated workforce, low operating costs and unparalleled quality of life the state offers, as well as the critical mass that Utah has created.” 

Oracle develops hardware and software engineered to work together in order to meet customers’ business needs. The company is focused on helping enable its 400,000 customers in more than 145 countries around the world eliminate complexity and simplify IT. The company already employs workers across Utah and will add customer support service jobs to Utah’s workforce. 

“We have been impressed by the high-tech growth in Utah and we’re pleased to be expanding our presence here,” said Randy Smith, vice president of real estate and facilities at Oracle. “The state offers a unique blend of potential economic growth as well as a highly skilled workforce. The opportunities in Utah are very clear and it’s the right place for us to grow.”
