“Impact and innovate future business software like never before.”
In 2005, shortly after my four-month internship with SAP through the Software School of Fudan University, I joined the company full-time to pursue my dream of building best-in-class global business software with the most evident impact.
The innovative working environment in the Business ByDesign Research & Development team helped enable my rapid growth in software development from the start. The most memorable experience during that time was working on product demos with SAP executives, during which I learned not only how to present a product to high-level decision makers, but also how decisions are made and how to drive execution across the entire innovation cycle.
At SAP, I am constantly working with highly committed, passionate and supportive people from all over the world. I have even had the opportunity to visit the Hasso Plattner Institute in Postdam for a week, where I met the SAP Co- Founder himself, an energetic 67-year-old, full of passion for new technology, who taught me the importance of holding onto and driving your dreams.
Now, my own dream has come true. I have joined a new team – SAP Business One – and am both a product owner and development architect in the SAP Business One Chief Architect team for user interface and social collaboration products, leveraging SAP’s cutting-edge HANA technologies and industry standards.
I have enjoined my seven years at SAP, where, given my own experience, ideas can become reality. At SAP, I am continuously inspired by our customers and partners, supported by my coworkers and leaders, and empowered by the industry's top experts.
