As a software development intern working on SAP Jam Collaboration, you will help to develop SAP's enterprise social networking product. SAP Jam brings together several types of social collaboration including social networking, collaboration with external participants (customers, recruits, partners, vendors, suppliers), structured collaboration for problem solving (business tools to strategize, rank items, enabling groups to weigh in on options, etc.), and business process integration via bots and external applications.

The position is on the Extensions and Platform team. Our topics cover 2 broad areas. The first is Extensions: creating developer and integration toolkits for SAP Jam on the SAP Cloud Platform, working on SAP Jam APIs and integration widgets, writing gadgets using the OpenSocial standard, and working on end-to-end integrations with various integration partners. The second is Platform: DevOps, Security (including Authentication and Authorization), Administrative Functionality, Performance Engineering, Platform Architecture and Microservices. Because of the nature of the topics, we work on both the back-end and the front-end of SAP Jam. At the same time, we work closely with many other teams both inside and outside SAP. Our team is also responsible for the development of the real time messaging feature which uses a lot of cutting edge front end technologies.

The SAP Jam team works in a fast-paced engineering environment working with the latest technologies. The team has strong engineers to learn from and share knowledge with. We also have the satisfaction of working on a product that has many actual users and so each developer’s contributions can have a tangible and noticeable impact.
