1. The successful candidate will be very well-versed in the Oracle middle-ware products. He/she doesn't have to be "source code" literate but has to know "how" the products work, how they are configured, how they are managed/monitored, etc. Here's a partial list of the critical products that would be involved: WebLogic Server (12.1.2, 12.1.3 and future 22.214.171.124), Coherence (3.4 through current versions), Tuxedo (10.3.x through 12.1.3 and potentially 12.2.2), Oracle Web-Server plugins for WebLogic Server (FedEx predominantly uses Apache web-servers with the WLS plugins installed).
2. In addition to the Oracle Fusion Middleware products, the person would need to be well-versed in the use/operation/configuration of other critical Oracle products such as Java SE (7, 8 and what's coming in 9), Java SE Advanced and Suite, Mission Control and Oracle Enterprise Manager (12c, 13c).
3. This person should also be at least familiar with and be capable of learning/using the following "non-Oracle" products that customer uses extensively: Eclipse Memory Analyzer Tool (MAT), jmap, jVisualVM, CA/Wily Introscope (APM), AppDynamics (APM) as well as various LDAP browsers such as jXplorer.
4. Familiarity with and/or use of Apache Tomcat would be a plus but is not critical.
5. (Extremely important) This person "must" have very good troubleshooting skills. Things are invariably going to go wrong and customer's team will need someone who can understand a complex environment in which the Oracle products are used and use that understanding to isolate, troubleshoot and ultimately fix any problems with those products.
6. (Extremely important) The person selected needs to have very good verbal and written communication skills. They will be part of a larger team that often has to interact with not only technical staff but also management so communication will be critical.
