SAP is pushing strongly into the cloud. To fuel and to further build up our momentum, we are constantly looking for graduates that want to hit the bull’s eye with their first job and that are eager to experience the abundant opportunities SAP has to offer.

SAP’s business unit Customer Engagement & Commerce (CEC) is redefining the paradigm of customer relationship management. We focus on the customer and the entire journey, including traditional marketing, sales, and service, as well as orchestrating online and mobile commerce and other interaction channels. Our applications are highly consumable, built on a flexible microservice-based architecture, and delivered to public and private clouds.


Knowing that you just finished your university degree, we want to take you onboard for an exciting journey of learning and personal growth. Accompanied by experienced colleagues and managers, you will embark on your professional career as part of an interdisciplinary team, allowing you to pick up substantial knowledge about SAP´s product and processes as well as about how to drive the future of the cloud.

Developing software at SAP is more than just writing efficient code - it’s a team effort: starting at product definition and design, including coding, testing, quality assurance, and documenting the results. We achieve this in interdisciplinary and international teams that include architects, user experience designers, quality specialists and developers.

Being a developer in an interdisciplinary team, you shouldn’t be shy to interact with your peers, to share your insight, and to identify areas of improvement. At the same time you are accepting individual responsibility for the availability of your deliverables on time and on budget. In the beginning, your focus will mostly be on learning the ropes of your responsibilities in your team, you gradually will take over more and more responsibility for your role and deliverables.

Following the principles of agile software development, we cherish direct feedback from customers by including them in design thinking workshops. Design thinking incorporates the idea of failing early and smart during the design phase rather than during customer usage. We test several different approaches to understand the design from different angles and especially from the customer’s point of view. Thus, we work out kinks in an early phase–while enjoying the interactive design process.

Having said this, you should have some solid software development skills and a passion to build meaningful, usable, and high-quality applications for people like yourself: customers.


What do we expect from you?

In the first place? An open mind! We build software that redefines the interaction of corporations – small and large – with their customers. We expect you to want to learn a lot of new and cool stuff. New technologies, methodologies, and ways to think out-of-the-box. Fresh insights and ideas are always welcome.

Of course we won’t let you alone with this task. Our promise to you is that we facilitate and support your learning with seasoned colleagues and mentors. Oh, yes, one more thing: We don’t only expect you to learn from us – we want YOU to share your fresh insights and ideas with us as well.

Required skills

  • Bachelor’s or master’s degree in computer science, science, or business administration is a good starting point for your development career at SAP CEC.

  • Technical skills and experience with JAVA

  • As part of an interdisciplinary and international team, we build on your communication skills as a team player and your fluency in the English and German languages.

  • While employing the principles of design thinking, your analytical skills enable you to learn from every failure and to go forward with every iteration.

  • Customers are at the very heart of what we do. Being a customer of modern web services, you appreciate the importance of understanding the requirements of customers for building excellent products.

Preferred skills

We don’t expect you to be an expert on all development methods or programming languages yet. However, skills in microservice-based cloud architectures comprising Cloud Foundry, Spring/Spring Boot, CI/CD (Jenkins), databases (PostgreSQL, Redis, …), messaging (RabbitMQ), GitHub, and Maven, as well as skills in JavaScript and HTML5 are a clear bonus. It’s important that you understand what it means to build software for the cloud: being cloud savvy, keywords such as SaaS, IaaS, PaaS, and DevOps pique your interest.


Are you a new graduate or an early talent? We’re happy to receive your application and to hear your insight into the future of the cloud. Of course, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t apply if you have up to two years of working experience. We would definitely like to hear from you, too!
