Senior Product Designer Job

Date: Jun 19, 2018

City: San Francisco, CA, US

Company: SAP

Requisition ID: 161621
Work Area: Software-Development Operations
Expected Travel: 0 - 10%
Career Status: Professional
Employment Type: Regular Full Time


As market leader in enterprise application software, SAP helps companies of all sizes and industries innovate through simplification. From the back office to the boardroom, warehouse to storefront, on premise to cloud, desktop to mobile device – SAP empowers people and organizations to work together more efficiently and use business insight more effectively to stay ahead of the competition. SAP applications and services enable customers to operate profitably, adapt continuously, and grow sustainably.


SAP.iO is a unit within SAP, charged with creating the next organic growth engines for SAP as an organization.

With more than €20 billion in annual sales, SAP manages an enormous diversity of businesses; however, moving the needle inside of SAP’s dominant enterprise business, requires adding more than incremental innovation – it requires the development of massively disruptive organizations.

The task of SAP.iO is to create those businesses, using SAP’s unique position and differentiated data sources to transform industries ranging from people management to security.


The SAP.iO incubation process is modeled after a venture-capital approach to building startups. Startups built within SAP.iO incubation operate differently to traditional corporate business units in three distinct ways:

General Managers are entrusted with end-to-end responsibilities for their projects – building cross functional teams to tackle business problems

Teams manage cash – budgeting is not on an annual basis but provided to prove business value over multi-year horizons

Boards are created to provide oversight and guidance on a regular basis – providing senior sponsorship and involvement throughout the lifecycle of a project

Startups that receive funding through SAP.iO incubation must be big enough to move the needle at SAP, attack new market opportunities for the company, and be able to be tested through rapid iteration and constant customer feedback.

We are looking for an experienced product designer looking for an exciting opportunity to work on a variety of innovative digital products.  This role will not be permanently assigned to any one startup, rather, they will be a member of our centralized incubation team responsible for the product design for one or several projects.  That said, if a particular business is of interest, there are opportunities to join that startup as they grow.


  • Own all aspects of the product design process, including:
    • UX: wireframes, whiteboard sessions, and brainstorming with the team
    • UI: mockups, assets, style guide
    • Prototyping: lightweight (Keynote/Invision) and heavyweight (FramerJS/Principle/Origami/HTML) prototypes
  • Collaborate closely with (and sit next to) product managers, marketers and engineers
  • Engage with customers and end users to ensure grass-root level understanding of the product’s current and future needs from a design perspective.
  • Own design QA by ensuring the shipped product matches your finalized designs
  • Influence SAP’s approach to product design by providing feedback to the SAP.iO leadership team
  • Be involved with usability and user testing sessions to gain invaluable customer & end user feedback
  • Ship product that sets a new quality standard for SAP


  • Proven experience designing and shipping top-quality digital products
  • Extensive portfolio showcasing your best work and your design process
  • Fast learner with an aptitude to gain developer and PM perspective
  • Obsessed with shipping insanely great products and knowing when to push back when the quality bar hasn’t been met
  • Love showing off your work to those involved as well as those who aren’t
  • Experience working in a startup environment with a lean product development process through rapid iteration
  • Believe in craftsmanship - the details are as important as the big picture
  • Experience designing products on multiple platforms (web, iOS, Android)
  • Comfortable building functional prototypes with a variety of tools
  • Experience collaborating with local and remote teams
  • Excellent presentation, oral and written communication skills


Some startup teams will be located elsewhere, including our Palo Alto campus as well as our international campuses.  As such, there may be travel involved but no more than 15%.



To harness the power of innovation, SAP invests in the development of its diverse employees. We aspire to leverage the qualities and appreciate the unique competencies that each person brings to the company.
