Oracle to move HQ out of Silicon Valley, to Texas, citing worker flexibility

Business software and services company Oracle is changing its corporate headquarters from the Silicon Valley area to Austin, Texas, to provide its workers “with more flexibility about where and how they work,” the company said Friday.

“Depending on their role, this means that many of our employees can choose their office location as well as continue to work from home part time or all the time,” Oracle said in a statement. The company opened a large corporate campus in Austin in 2018, but it reportedly doesn’t have any plans to move staff from its existing headquarters in Redwood City, California, to Austin.

The company said it will continue to maintain facilities around the US, including those in Redwood City, as well as in Denver; Seattle; Burlington, Vermont; Orlando, Florida; and Santa Monica, California; among others. It expects to establish new locations too, it said.

“By implementing a more modern approach to work, we expect to further improve our employees’ quality of life and quality of output,” the company said in its statement.
