SAP started in 1972 as a team of five colleagues with a desire to do something new. Together, they changed enterprise software and reinvented how business was done.

That’s why we engineer solutions to fuel innovation, foster equality and spread opportunity for our employees and customers across borders and cultures.
SAP values the entrepreneurial spirit, fostering creativity and building lasting relationships with our employees. We know that a diverse and inclusive workforce keeps us competitive and provides opportunities for all. We believe that together we can transform industries, grow economics, lift up societies and sustain our environment. Because it’s the best-run businesses that make the world run better and improve people’s lives.
You always thought SAP software is all about complex, larger-than-life business processes? Read on, to learn more about the development of software for the future of the cloud. SAP is the global market leader for business software; that’s a well-known fact. But SAP, the strongest contender in the market for cloud software, is a key driving force in defining the cloud of the future.
PURPOSE AND OBJECTIVES
SAP is pushing strongly into the cloud. To fuel and to further build up our momentum, we are constantly looking for graduates that want to hit the bull’s eye with their first job and that are eager to experience the abundant opportunities SAP has to offer.
SAP's Public Services Industry is a frontrunner in the organization to build the next gen solution in the cloud.
EXPECTATIONS AND TASKS
Knowing that you just finished your university degree, we want to take you onboard for an exciting journey of learning and personal growth. Accompanied by experienced colleagues and managers, you will embark on your professional career as part of an interdisciplinary team, allowing you to pick up substantial knowledge about SAPs product and processes as well as about how to drive the future of the cloud.
Developing software at SAP is more than just writing efficient code - it’s a team effort: starting at product definition and design, including coding, testing, quality assurance, and documenting the results. We achieve this in interdisciplinary and international teams that include architects, user experience designers, quality specialists and developers.
Being a developer associate in an interdisciplinary team, you shouldn’t be shy to interact with your peers, to share your insight, and to identify areas of improvement. In the beginning, your focus will mostly be on learning the ropes of your responsibilities in your team, you gradually will take over more and more responsibility for your role and deliverables.
Following the principles of agile software development, we cherish direct feedback from customers by including them in design thinking workshops. Design thinking incorporates the idea of failing early and smart during the design phase rather than during customer usage. We test several different approaches to understand the design from different angles and especially from the customer’s point of view. Thus, we work out kinks in an early phase–while enjoying the interactive design process.
Having said this, you should have some solid software development skills and a passion to build meaningful, usable, and high-quality applications for people like yourself: customers.
EDUCATION, SKILLS AND COMPETENCIES
What do we expect from you?
In the first place? An open mind! We build software that redefines the interaction of corporations – small and large – with their customers. We expect you to want to learn a lot of new and cool stuff. New technologies, methodologies, and ways to think out-of-the-box. Of course we won’t let you alone with this task. Our promise to you is that we facilitate and support your learning with seasoned colleagues and mentors. Oh, yes, one more thing: We don’t only expect you to learn from us – we want YOU to share your fresh insights and ideas with us as well.
From experience, we know that a bachelor’s or master’s degree in computer science, science, or business administration is a good starting point for your development career at SAP Public Services Industry. As part of an interdisciplinary and international team, we build on your communication skills as a team player and your fluency in the English. While employing the principles of design thinking, your analytical skills enable you to learn from every failure and to go forward with every iteration.
We don’t expect you to be an expert on all development methods or programming languages yet. Design and usability are key drivers for the success of our software. To achieve that, we use with SAP FIORI and SAP UI5, SAP specific paradigms and toolkits to develop user interfaces that are easy to use, while providing access to the wealth of functionality bundled in our software. Inside the SAP framework we use with ABAP a SAP specific development language. A good understanding of object oriented languages and standards is therefore important.
Understanding the concepts of in-memory technologies, such as SAP HANA, is beneficial for you career start. A further interest or already some experience in SAP Business Suite applications like SAP CRM, SAP ERP or SAP SRM will be a further advantage for you.
We are also seeking individuals with an interest in quality assurance. Though it is not mandatory to already have experience in test management, setup and execution, it will be beneficial for you to hit the ground running.
Are you a new graduate or an early talent? We’re happy to receive your application and to hear your insight into the future of the cloud. Of course, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t apply if you have up to two years of working experience. We would definitely like to hear from you, too!
