For its 24-year history, the company has established itself as a preferred employer in the IT sector in Bulgaria.

What you`ll do:

On our mission to improve developer experience at SAP, we are looking for somebody like you. We are creating a new Scrum Team in Sofia, Bulgaria, to join us in developing “Hyperspace Portal”, the new entry point for 50.000 product developers at SAP.

“Architecture is for humans, not for machines” – we are looking for team players with excellent communication skills who can drill into complex technical challenges and explain them to non-techies in a crisp way. 

We also believe that in an agile team, architecture is not a single role, but the result of collaboration, with the architect being a trustful partner of your product owner in finding the fastest way to reach a business goal. In the team, you will also take over concrete programming tasks yourself. 

You are also entitled to participate in our unit-wide research initiative that reserves up to 10% of our time for research & innovation.
