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.


At ABAP Platform Cloud Infrastructure, we are engineering the SAP Business Technology Platform ABAP Environment a.k.a. Steampunk, meaning, we are exposing the ABAP Server as a Service through SAP BTP to expand the reach of our battle proven runtime and development stack into the cloud era. We are currently moving from VMs to Kubernetes to leverage container technology and economics of scale. We are committed to opt-in to a Kubernetes native target architecture. Sitting on the Hyper Scalers we manage infrastructure as code with no exception. With SAP Gardener at our disposal, we even get a uniform way to configure K8s clusters across Hyper Scalers. We are searching for an outstanding team player who is passionate about cloud native principles and architecture both from the consumer side and the platform engineering & operations side. You will be part of a diverse team of highly motivated and skilled people who are dedicated to build a fundamental piece of the SAP Business Technology Platform. This means you will experience first-hand how the heavy lifting engineering work is done under the covers of the Steampunk PaaS offering. You will be part of the whole DevOps lifecycle and complement it as a Site Reliability Engineer.
You should bring with you good experience with Kubernetes, Docker, and cloud native principals to gain deep understanding of our service topology. We expect you to leverage your existing DevOps skills and tightly focus on service reliability of our system fleets. You should be familiar with popular monitoring, alerting, and logging tools (e.g. Dynatrace, Prometheus, ELK, ...) and be a master of the Linux command line to conquer any admin level task. Additional ABAP Server level admin experience can be built up if not present. We expect you to actively push the boundaries of automation and advocate the SRE mindset directly into the development teams to early incorporate requirements towards service reliability. Good language skills in German and English required.

We stick to the principles of Scrum. Teams decide how they architecture/impl. things. We attend each other's sprint reviews to stay well informed across Scrum Teams. We leverage retrospectives and unfiltered communication for continuous optimization.
