Software Developer & Quality Engineer @GS HCM North America

The Rotation Program gave me the opportunity to go through two different areas as a Software Developer and learn from each of them, along with trainings to improve my skills. It was a great opportunity for my technical and professional growth. In addition, I had many experiences inside of each area, like working with modern technologies, professional growth guided by a mentor, networking with highly qualified professionals, working in a team and developing solutions to improve people's lives.

Client Delivery Manager – Enterprise Cloud Services

Rotation Program was the perfect key for me to improve myself personally and professionally and expand my skills to start my career. As a person that came from a non-technical background, Rotation Program gave me all the opportunities and tools I needed to develop myself technically enough to perform at my job and feel like belonging in the technology department. Besides, being able to experience different areas of SAP was a huge opportunity to connect with people and expand my horizons. The program inspired me to reach high and molded me to the professional that I am today, and for that I am grateful.
