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.

This year SAP and Alibaba announced a collaboration and co-innovation to jointly go to market to offer SAP S/4HANA Cloud, the digital cloud suite of choice to run a successful business in the cloud. Alibaba Cloud’s customers will also be able to deploy SAP Cloud Platform to extend their current business solutions, build new applications and integrate third-party technologies. This joint venture has created many new roles within SAP for cloud-focused developers and devops professionals, including this role!


With SAP Cloud Platform the world’s best developers can create cloud business applications based on Platform-as-a-Service environments such as Cloud Foundry. Applications can be deployed to AWS, Azure, GCP and SAP data centers around the globe. With comprehensive services and capabilities, developers can create better applications in less time. As the next step in cloud-native development, we are now integrating Kubernetes into SAP Cloud Platform.

In our team we develop the cockpit, the administrative UI of SAP Cloud Platform. It enables developers to configure, operate and access applications and services across different environments and regions in a unified way. As a diverse Scrum team of JavaScript and Java developers as well as user experience and design experts, we are equally excited about creating consumer-grade UIs and following state-of-the-art software engineering practices. Having pair programming, test-driven development and code reviews integrated into our daily routine, we value technical excellence as much as teamwork, openness and trust.

If you share our excitement about the potential and new opportunities cloud computing offers and you are keen to dive into professional front-end development, then you will find in our team the inspiration and challenge you are looking for. We are committed to invest in your growth with on-the-job learning opportunities, self-learning and training offerings.
