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.

Are you a full-stack lead developer who has shipped several big web applications? Is the thought of constantly learning and innovating while simultaneously shipping production software exciting? Does your code have proven long-term maintainability? Has the UI layer always been what excites you the most? If so, the SAP Concur Expense UI Engineering team has an opportunity just for you.


As an industry leader, our cloud-based SaaS product is used by millions of people around the globe and we need to make their experience even more delightful and efficient. While SAP Concur’s code base is almost old enough to vote, we are revitalizing it with the latest technologies such as Node.js, React, Redux, and GraphQL.


SAP Concur’s next generation Expense UI is a modern web application for the modern traveler. Our application is built with modern JavaScript, React, Redux, GraphQL, Node.js and Express, and is deployed on Kubernetes clusters. We own our stack. You are empowered to suggest and implement changes in anything from how we write stories to how we do deployment and monitor. 


With our globally distributed 40 million users and over 500,000 expense reports submitted in a single day, we know about UI at scale. We strive to provide an accessible, fast, and delightful experience.  We have our work cut out for us and are looking for great developers to join our team!


In your first 12 months as a Senior Software Design Engineer on the Travel UI team, you will:

• Ship: The most important 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 and development 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.


In order to accomplish this, you will need:

• A proven track record of UI engineering skills across multiple frontend technology stacks, including designing components for reuse across tens or hundreds of screens.

• Very strong client-side JavaScript programming skills with a bias towards UI frameworks such as React. Understanding of functional programming techniques as well as writing unit and integration tests should also be considered a normal part of writing code.

• Deep experience with HTML and CSS.

• Experience tackling cross-cutting concerns such as security, themes, localization, browser compatibility, and extensive user preferences.

• A strong background working in large web applications that have hundreds or thousands of screens.

• Leadership experience where you’ve emerged as a technical leader in your team, leading by example and coaching other team members toward better maintainability.

• Experience with Node.js, webpack, Docker, ES6, babel, and React.

• Experience configuring your team’s source control, build, CI processes, and deployment practices.

• 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 confidently design a full-stack web application.

• 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.


What do you need to bring?

• BSCS, BSEE, or equivalent years of work experience

• 7+ years of experience delivering successful full-stack web application projects

• 5+ years of experience with JavaScript. Proficiency with functional programming techniques is highly desirable.

• 4+ years of experience with server-side technologies like Node.js, ASP.NET, ASP, or PHP.

• 2+ years of experience building and using REST APIs. Experience with GraphQL is highly desirable.

• 2+ years as a technical lead or development lead.

• 1+ years working with React or similar frontend UI framework

• 1+ years of experience deploying applications (across multiple versions) to a public cloud platform such as AWS. Proficiency with Kubernetes and/or Linux container technology such as Docker is highly desirable.


Value Competencies:

• Displays passion for & responsibility to the customer

• Displays leadership through innovation in everything you do
