Summary & Role Information

As the area product owner for the Service Mesh Security development and operations team, you will shape the security aspects of the SAP Service Mesh as part of the newly founded Platform Security Engineering unit within T&I BTP Core (formerly Cloud Platform). 

Being a part of SAP’s BTP Core Security Control Plane provides our team members with a unique and exciting place to work. We are very much like a startup in that we build exciting new products with cloud-native technologies, and you can shape the product at an early stage. By building security services at the center of the cloud platform you help bringing our ideas to life, shipping code into production, and seeing the value you create, but with the added benefit of knowing we’re fighting to protect SAP’s customer’s most critical business data in the cloud. 

You will actively contribute to the success of the SAP Platform Security Engineering unit by defining and driving development topics, a joint vision and strategy, and put in place a cloud-native architecture for the services to especially ensure the availability, resilience, and stability of the SAP Service Mesh security-related service offering.

You will be part of the development organization in Europe that builds various aspects of the Service meshs’ security, such as service identities, service-to-service traffic control, certificate infrastructure, and credential storage. As such, you will keep a broad oversight and work with a diverse team of experts, architects, and engineering groups to shape the big picture, as well as individual product characteristics and define and prioritize stories of the teams’ backlogs to produce sequential deliverables that satisfy the unit larger program requirements.
We expect you to establish a close relationship with internal and external stakeholders to define and rank the overall product priorities based on their requirements, customer feedback, overall product strategy, and cloud technology developments. You will act as a single point of contact between the stakeholders (across units) and the customers of our products and translate business needs into technology and vice versa. 

In addition, you will be responsible for the product roadmap of multiple teams, the alignment of backlogs from teams contributing to the Service Mesh development, clarification of product and project dependencies, and prioritize the backlog items accordingly. 

We have created many positions in our unit Platform Security Engineering for experienced and junior developers and cyber security experts to ideate, build and create our next generation of security defense technologies in the Cloud in an agile environment. Identity and Access Management (IAM) with a focus on authorization, cryptography and public key infrastructures, geo-blocking, and advanced policy systems are just a brief example of what we do at Platform Security Engineering and what we’ll continue to innovate.  Bring your skills and join our team of security developers, and you’ll grow into that cyber defense engineer the world needs today.
