About the role
SAP One Domain Model (ODM) provides a coherent enterprise data model with common semantics, used to exchange data between business applications of the intelligent suite and its ecosystem. This new enterprise data model covers not just a single solution but the entire set of applications making up SAP's Intelligent Enterprise. Our team is located in Germany and Portugal.

We are looking for an experienced Development Architect to drive the architectural design of the SAP One Domain Model in collaboration with a skilled team. 


As a member of our team, you will:

  • Discuss, align and decide on ODM modeling guidelines (e.g. how to model temporal data, hierarchies, inheritance, industry and customer extensions, how to support independent evolution and loose coupling).

  • Collaborate closely with developers and architects from the business technology platform and all lines of businesses to come to a feasible and adoptable architectural concept.

  • Look outside for what others are doing in this domain, and what standards and technologies others use, and what trends are relevant.

  • Document design decisions and rationales in architecture concept documents, architectural design records, and guidelines.


Role Requirements:

  • Degree in computer science, mathematics, engineering, or a related field.

  • 10+ years of experience in application development.

  • Ability to drive a complex topic towards decisions and impact.

  • Strong analytic skills and ability to think abstractly.

  • Experience in business application modeling and development to evaluate how things will work out in practice.

  • Experience in Domain-Driven Design is beneficial.

  • Interest and experience with patterns, models, and metamodels.

  • Ability to do architectural documentations.

We are looking for fluent English speakers, reliable team players with a humble and positive mindset, with a can-do attitude, who can build and focus on customer needs and quality.  



SAP is not offering international relocation benefits for this role currently. Only candidates who have legal authorization to Work in Portugal and are currently based in Portugal will be considered.
