The SAP Converged Cloud is SAP’s managed private cloud solution. It is an internal Infrastructure-as-a-Service platform to support all of SAP’s cloud businesses on a global scale. Challenge yourself in the world of cloud infrastructure and become an integral part of the group that directs SAP’s strategy to move to the Cloud. Work in a globally diverse and innovative team where courage and originality are highly valued and for a company where you are encouraged to make the decision on which path your career should take you.


We are looking for highly talented individuals to join a new professional services team, where open collaboration with our stakeholders and with the engineering teams is the key to success.  You have the ability to quickly grasp complex architecture and integration approaches, map these to solutions and capabilities on our platform to ensure successful implementation or migration according to tight timelines.  You will be working closely with some of SAP’s best and brightest engineers to continuously improve and drive feature innovations based on stakeholder requirements.  You have the consultative and leadership qualities to both listen to the stakeholder’s needs whilst at the same time guiding and nurturing them towards the best possible solution.  Your mature and developed communication style enables you to both speak to teams of solution architects as well as to convey these topics to executives or lay persons in reports or presentations.
