SAP started in 1972 as a team of five colleagues with a desire to do something new. Together, they changed enterprise software and reinvented how business was done. Today, as a market leader in enterprise application software, we remain true to our roots. That's why we engineer solutions to fuel innovation, foster equality and spread opportunity for our employees and customers across borders and cultures.
SAP values the entrepreneurial spirit, fostering creativity and building lasting relationships with our employees. We know that a diverse and inclusive workforce keeps us competitive and provides opportunities for all. We believe that together we can transform industries, grow economics, lift up societies and sustain our environment. Because it's the best-run businesses that make the world run better and improve people's lives.
Do you love that feeling of trying something completely new and having it work? Is the thought of constantly learning and innovating while simultaneously shipping production software exciting? Do you see failure as an opportunity to learn and grow? If so, come join the platform R&D team and help us blaze the trail for SAP Concur as we build out the next generation of software and services.
In the first 12 months you will:
* Ship: (several iterations, in fact). The most import thing that our team can do for the company is to ship production software. Aside from adding direct value to our customers, it is also the ultimate validation of our research efforts. * Learn: We move fast and are unafraid to venture into the unknown if it can improve our software or the way in which we deliver that software. As a result, we are constantly learning new technologies and new approaches. * Lead: Everyone must be constantly learning and must be constantly teaching others on the team. This can come in the form of code reviews, one on one pairing sessions, group teaching sessions, and more. More broadly, you will be a part of the team that is helping to lead the rest of the company to a new architectural paradigm with a new set of technologies and a new set of approaches.

Working knowledge of NoSQL technologies * Strong understanding and experience of Software-As-A-Service and Cloud computing practices * Results driven personality, high enthusiasm, energy and confidence * Strong analytical and design skills - you should be able to think about problems broadly and deeply. From the technology perspective, you should be able to design a system from subnets to algorithms. * A "maker's mind". Everything we do is about building and shipping software. * A high degree of intellectual curiosity and a lack of fear for learning something new. You should be open to learn from others and also willing to help mentor and teach. * Experience building applications on a cloud platform such as Amazon, Google, Azure etc. highly desirable * Effective communication and cross-team collaboration skills. * Hands on experience in solutions engineering and architecting software solutions would be a plus * A passion for new and emerging technology.
