The Role

Join our cloud engineering group and help ensure the availability and performance of systems used by some of the world’s largest enterprises. We provide cloud-hosted, web-based tools that customers use to access, monitor, and develop for SAP’s data management and data analytics products.


We have a strong “automate everything you can” mindset and you will spend much of your time automating tasks in areas such as deployment, security, and monitoring using a variety of programming tools including Java, Python, JavaScript, and Groovy.  You will also be responsible for designing, implementing, enhancing and maintaining microservices that support the team’s goals.


You’ll support our front-line operations team by investigating and resolving production issues and documenting processes so the operations team can resolve future issues themselves. You’ll collaborate with other software developers helping them investigate issues and recommending software improvements. You’ll manage expansions of our software to new regions and platforms and handle upgrades to ensure customers always have the latest software.


Our environment is fast moving, with rapidly changing priorities and technologies. We’re looking for people with a passion for learning new technologies who are unafraid to see things change and who actively seek ways to improve how we work. If you have a strong focus on customer satisfaction and love the challenge working with large, complex systems, then this could be the job for you.
