Date: Jan 2, 2018

Location: Berlin, BE, DE, 10178

Company: SAP

SAP HANA is SAP’s ground-breaking in-memory database platform. It provides a powerful foundation for existing SAP products as well as for new applications on device, in the cloud and on premise. SAP HANA’s cutting-edge technology for main memory, multi-core processing, and data management enables real-time analysis in combination with online transactional processing of business data. We want to strengthen SAP HANA’s position as a first-class cloud citizen, as the cloud and database as a service (DBaaS) are gaining in importance.

SAP HANA backup and recovery offers capabilities to implement a sophisticated backup strategy in order to meet challenging requirements regarding recovery point objective (RPO) and recovery time objective (RTO) for business-critical applications running on SAP HANA.

Following the SAP cloud strategy, the focus of your daily work will be to contribute to extend SAP HANA backup and recovery to a backup cloud service with high requirements regarding security, flexibility and performance.  At first, an SAP HANA backup cloud service will be implemented for the SAP HANA DBaaS offering based on the SAP Cloud Platform. Afterwards, the offering will be extended to all major cloud computing services.

Your responsibilities will be to design, implement and test a backup service for SAP HANA and ensure that it can easily be adapted to the cloud platforms of different vendors. Leveraging the IaaS capabilities of these platforms is crucial in order to reduce the TCO.

Within our team, we practice a trust-based working model and apply the DevOps principles. If you need to work from another location on a temporary basis, or during different hours you can do so given your manager’s agreement.
