Life at SAP

SAPers usually stay at the company for quite some time, and we’re all about developing deep and lasting relationships with our employees. So before you join, take a moment to learn about life at SAP – from how we operate and innovate, to our projects, social responsibilities, and work-life balance – to make sure we’re the right fit for you.

Success is what you make it, and at SAP we’ll help you make it your own

At SAP, we know that success means different things to different people: from climbing the leadership ladder to striking the perfect work-life balance and everything in between. So we go to great lengths to ensure you have every opportunity to succeed in your own way. But no matter how you define success, collaboration will be a big part of your life at SAP. More than 78,000 of us flourish in an environment that encourages open, free expression of ideas. Work alongside other creative thinkers from many different backgrounds – and collaborate to help the world run better and improve people’s lives. 

How We Run

Here, our employees know what we stand for. Ask any of us and we’ll tell you about our “How We Run” behaviors – 5 simple principles that give us purpose and help us achieve our goals. 

Bold New Ideas

At SAP, innovation is more than just developing top-notch software – it’s creating technologies that open up new possibilities. Learn about the methods we use to make the magic happen. 

Inspiring Projects

SAPers work on some seriously cool and life-changing projects. Everything from sensor-enabled robots and digital farms – to the fight against diseases like cancer, AIDS, and diabetes. 

Work. Play. Live.

All work and no play? Not a chance. Life at SAP is balanced and fair. We offer flexible work schedules, opportunities to work from home, time off for volunteering, and so much more.

Women at SAP

Gender equality is an important part of SAP’s mission to help the world run better and improve people’s lives. Operating in an industry often cited for its lack of diversity, SAP has been working to counter this trend and be a tech company that is willing to lead by example.
