COMPANY DESCRIPTION

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.

PURPOSE AND OBJECTIVES 
Even the most groundbreaking idea starts with a small spark, an idea that may seem unremarkable and unimpressive at first, but that can eventually be turned into something that has a profound impact on the world around us.
The SAP Innovation Center in Potsdam is a dedicated group within SAP that focuses on creating innovative software prototypes, which pave the way for new and potentially revolutionary IT solutions. We work in small teams that draw on the diverse professional and cultural backgrounds of our members and cooperate directly with end users and partners on a range of problems involving big data. It is our goal to build business applications that will make complex products and processes seem simple, natural and obvious. That is why the users of our software are at the center of our development processes.

We are looking for a Communication Designer that supports the team in designing outstanding brand experiences and communication materials for SAP.
The SAP Innovation Center is a buzzing hub of international and very motivated folks with diverse professional backgrounds. Low hierarchies and direct project responsibilities enable you to design with impact. Flexible working times, special offerings (like fitness courses, a bouldering wall, beach volleyball court, a decent espresso machine) and last but not least our marvelous location next to Jungfernsee make working at SAP Innovation Center fun.

Location for this position is our lakeside campus in Potsdam. There is a shuttle for SAP employees running from Berlin to Potsdam and back every day.
