Sebastian's Story

At SAP, we believe that when you bring everything you are, you can become everything you want.

All colleagues here in development, support and consulting help everyone wherever they can. With their support the transition from university to SAP was quite smooth and felt exciting.

Sebastian Fritschi

Sebastian Fritschi is a Retail Data Scientist at the Tägerwilen office in Switzerland.

"I was born and grew up at the beautiful Bodensee (Lake Constance), where the SAP Tägerwilen office is located. After studying in Zürich, I knew I had to come back home to Konstanz. After another 6 years at the university here and obtaining a PhD in statistical physics I was ready to join SAP Switzerland, a decision I had no cause to regret since. My older brother has worked for SAP for nearly 2 decades and he gave me insights into the story of SAP Tägerwilen. When I heard about the projects and got to know the great team here, I knew that I belonged here.

I now live in a small village in Germany a few km from the office and, like many of us worldwide in 2020, currently work from home. Living in a picturesque holiday region I have to say; it could be worse.

My work focuses on data science activities in the field of retail and consumer industries. We optimize forecast models and all other factors that influence processes such as goods replenishment. Working for customers worldwide I can carry out most of my projects remotely. What I like is that every day I talk to people all over the world about country and culture specific aspects that influence their business.

Everyone at SAP Tägerwilen has helped me shape my career at SAP. All colleagues here in development, support and consulting help everyone wherever they can. With their support the transition from university to SAP was quite smooth and felt exciting. During lockdown I realized how much I miss the relaxed atmosphere as well as the daily, highly competitive table soccer matches at the office.

Living and working in this region provides an amazing work-life balance. We not only have the lake but also the alps within reach. Together with my family and friends I try to spend as much time as possible on and at the water, hiking trails and skiing slopes. Also, our camper van is always ready to bring us to the mountains or the Mediterranean Sea. I would say there is definitely enough life to balance the work we do here!"
