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.

Because it’s the best-run businesses that make the world run better and improve people’s lives.


As market leader in enterprise application software, SAP helps companies of all sizes and industries innovate through simplification.

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.

Accounting is the backbone of S/4HANA. And our vision is to be the world’s most innovative accounting solution in the cloud – while remaining the world’s leading business accounting solution for multinational large enterprises. We offer seamlessly integrated solutions for planning, accounting and consolidation. We provide embedded compliance, legal reporting and management support that are capable for extreme high data volume.

We are set up globally with teams in Walldorf, Potsdam, Shanghai and Palo Alto, Brno. We are working in close collaboration with customers and partners to support superior finance processes and new business models.

Within our teams, we practice an agile and customer-oriented development approach. High customer orientation and focus on providing value to our clients is the main guiding principle for all development activities.


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 as well as software maintenance. We achieve this in interdisciplinary and international teams that include architects, product experts, quality specialists and developers.

Being a developer (associate) in an interdisciplinary team, you shouldn’t be shy to interact with your peers, to share your insight, and to identify areas of improvement. 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 already in our specification and design process. At the same time, we profit from the feedback we get from customers using our product.

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.

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.
