Kerem's Story

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

I love that we have great relationships between colleagues, that we have big events where we bring colleagues together and can network and that we are constantly learning state-of-the-art and exciting technologies.

Kerem Uyanik

Kerem Uyanik has Turkish roots but was born and raised in Germany. In 2017 he movedto Switzerland and works at the Tägerwilen office as a software developer.

I started as an intern at SAP in Walldorf. After that, I came to SAP Tägerwilen in Switzerland as a Working Student. I wrote my Bachelor Thesis here and started as full time Developer in 2017. In my role now, we work on forecasting and replenishment solutions in the retail industry.

The retail industry is very interesting. You work with “daily-life business processes” as everyone is shopping in a fashion store or grocery store. Therefore, it is exciting to improve the business processes you experience in daily life.

My first ‘contact’ with SAP was through soccer! I’ve been following German soccer since childhood so I knew of the rise of the German soccer club TSG 1899 Hoffenheim, which was led by SAP founder Dietmar Hopp and sponsored by SAP.

I saw the value of SAP as a sponsor in soccer, which gave me the feeling that SAP is a really big and strong company. As I wanted to study computer sciences, I became more and more interested in SAP.

When researching SAP, I realized that developing business solutions is something I would like to do. I also saw that there is such a big spectrum of areas where SAP is working in. SAP is even developing software for soccer clubs, like FC Bayern Munich, TSG 1899 Hoffenheim or even the German National team. When I saw that, I was like ‘wow’, I want to work at that company.

SAP Switzerland was a great opportunity. I studied in Konstanz (Lake Constance), and working at the German-Swiss border at a beautiful location was definitely a great place to work. We are a small and very familiar location, maybe different than bigger locations, but very nice.

So far, I never worked for another company than SAP. I started my first student job at SAP, and I’m still here. Therefore, I have a big identification with SAP, because I was somehow ‘raised’ with this culture.

I love that we have great relationships between colleagues, that we have big events where we bring colleagues together and can network and that we are constantly learning state-of-the-art and exciting technologies.

Success means for me that I’m happy at work and that I feel I’m contributing to the SAP success (even if I’m only a very small value in a big chain). SAP has definitely allowed me to reach this. I’m actively contributing on different solutions, developing my skills and developing personally. Therefore, I’m very glad to work at SAP.

Outside of work, unsurprisingly, my biggest hobby is soccer. I love watching it, I’ve played it and I coached youth teams. As SAP offers me flexible working hours, I have a great work life balance. I also like to go to the fitness studio, ride a bike and travel.
