What do our people say?

Brittany West
Senior Director in Product Management

Our job is to think out-of-the-box, to test our own assumptions and stay curious. As a growing group, we are constantly changing and adapting our working model and the problem spaces we are exploring – which leaves room for us to pursue our interests and grow in an aspect of professional, product design and development.

Roland Martin
Senior Data Scientist and Design Thinking Coach

As a Design Thinker, I make sure to understand our requirements in auser-centric way and as a Data Scientist I then try to come up with a strategy to solve the problem efficiently and effectively. I have seen too many solutions that were either not user-centric ordid not solve the problem efficiently.

Claudia Funck
Chief Project Expert

I work with development teams distributed across 8 locations, in 3 continents and 5 time-zones. This results in leading remote and working together with colleagues I have never met in person. Therefore, communication and organizational tasks are my daily business.

Sarah Prielhofer
Associate Agile Developer

I first heard of SAP from my uncle when I was probably 16 years old and I was still in school. My uncle is a customer of SAP and he always told me stories from his work. After I started studying informatics, he always told me, that I am going to be part of SAP and will make the good software even better. Well, I never thought as a young girl, that he was right.

Sebastian Fritschi
Retail Data Scientist

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.
