Let’s jumpstart your career. Dive into SAP with a one year, full-time rotational program and career accelerator for recent graduates, with opportunities in develpment, design, data science, product management, quality assurance, data center infrastructure, and cloud delivery. Participants of the Silicon Valley Next Talent Program will be joining a talented community of tech innovators and will be given the opportunity to work with diverse SAP business units, teams, and products across our three Bay Area offices.
Within the year of the program, participants rotate with 3 to 4 different teams within our products organization.
