SAP Developer (m/f/d)* at FIS

SAP developers are real IT experts who are specialized in the SAP business software. They analyze development orders, develop software solutions and are in constant exchange with their colleagues, the consultants and their customers. It is this variety of activities as well as the work with state-of-the-art tools and technologies that make the job of an SAP developer both exciting and challenging. In the following, you will get all relevant information on what you may expect as an SAP developer at FIS.

What are the typical tasks of an SAP developer?

As an SAP developer, you develop customer-specific modifications of the SAP systems or program individual FIS solutions. For the implementation, you analyze the tasks from the development orders and design and implement the technical solutions, adaptations and enhancements. You integrate new SAP applications into the customer's existing system and develop optimizations for existing SAP modules. Since customers often face similar challenges, you also create FIS template solutions that can be implemented in the customer's system in just a few steps and consequently quickly generate added value.

In addition, you will maintain the customer's running system, perform error analyses and fix them. As an SAP ABAP developer, you create test plans and test drafts of the developed program together with the customer's consultants and employees. You evaluate them afterwards in order to make further adjustments and modifications if necessary. You also provide support for release upgrades and implement legal changes in the applications. During the entire development and adaptation process, quality assurance in the form of technical documentations is an important task.

You will do your work mainly in your office at the FIS headquarters in Grafenrheinfeld or in one of our branch offices in Leonberg or Offenbach. However, you should also be willing to travel as you will also travel to customer meetings, depending on the project and task focus. Together with your colleagues from the Consulting and Support departments, you will work as a team to achieve the best possible results for the customers. The IT sector is fast moving and there are constant innovations and changes. That is why it is especially important to train yourself regularly and keep your knowledge up to date. This makes it easy for you to track down new trends to create a solution that will delight the customer.
