More Design leadership will help SAP S/4HANA become even more successful
At the heart of SAP is the SAP S/4HANA product portfolio, which covers a huge range of customer critical product areas including Enterprise Management, Finance, Industries, Supply Chain, Sustainability and Sales. It’s a diverse product set which is on an exciting transformation journey into the cloud. Experience is key to attract and keep our customers, to maximize employee delight and productivity so that we can bring real business value.

We are looking for an excellent design leader who has a willingness to initiate and drive the change needed for our products and within our design & development culture. We need someone with a profound background in designing for large scale product development, who can set the standard for excellent design and design practices to bring together all the SAP S/4HANA solutions and products. 


S/4HANA loves UX
This role, reporting to the head of SAP S/4HANA User Experience organization, is an extremely influential and strategic role, and is needed to improve our design leadership in the SAP S/4HANA area, and work with all our major stakeholders on design direction, strategy and concepts for this vital area of SAP’s product portfolio. 

The SAP S/4HANA User Experience organization itself has a proven track record of increasing employee engagement and leadership trust with our “people first” programs and culture. It is a great organization to join, and to help grow to the next level, as a leader for design and a role model for our brilliant people. 


Summary & Role Information
As a Chief Designer (m/f/d) in the SAP S/4HANA UX organization you will help drive, consolidate and define the strategic direction of design within the SAP S/4HANA organization. We need someone who will work with us to accelerate everything we need to have a better end user experience in our cloud products. Together with our 100+ designers working across our complex and diverse portfolio you will help:


  • Bring to life our design strategy, working closely with the SAP’s overall Design organization
  • Understand the end-users needs and transfer it into a modern product experience
  • Define key requirements to help us push the needle for UX within SAP S/4HANA
