Business Architect

Job Description

SAP started in 1972 as a team of five colleagues with a desire to do something new. Together, they changed enterprise software and reinvented how business was done. Today, as a market leader in enterprise application software, we remain true to our roots. That’s why we engineer solutions to fuel innovation, foster equality and spread opportunity for our employees and customers across borders and cultures.

SAP values the entrepreneurial spirit, fostering creativity and building lasting relationships with our employees. We know that a diverse and inclusive workforce keeps us competitive and provides opportunities for all. We believe that together we can transform industries, grow economics, lift up societies and sustain our environment. Because it’s the best-run businesses that make the world run better and improve people’s lives.


In this role as Business Architect you will be the professional face of SAP towards our key customers in the early phases of complex engagements creating the right vison for our customer’s business problems. We expect you to be able to build a customer specific picture from the very high number of puzzle pieces that our portfolio represents. However the emphasize is on your business acumen rather than the SAP solution knowledge. An ideal candidate will be able to advise customer decision makers on business strategy, build Digital Transformation vision for our customers and take a professional stand on different subjects.

The business architect profile is best described as a cross between a strategy and business consultant and an IT architect. Our expectation is that you understand what role IT plays in today’s business rather than be an IT expert yourself. It is completely fine if you don’t know in detail with the different layers of an IT architecture however you need to be aware at least their basic function in a business environment.

In most cases you will be leading virtual and physical teams of experts and other colleagues (e.g. consultants, product or project managers) in a project like environment however we would like you to be able to also deliver on your own in cases where supporting experts aren’t available.

What we offer to you in exchange is a highly stimulating and flexible environment where you will have the chance to work on a wide variety of topics,  explore new areas, learn new industries. It can be part of the job to work with logistics experts during the morning on a warehouse automation project proposal and deliver a banking transformation pitch in the afternoon.

You will be able to really make an impact not just on our bottom line but also on the strategy of our customers – which in this case means the majority of enterprises in the Hungarian market.

Next to leading customer facing engagements we will ask you to also participate in business development activities and be a thought leader in the market on our behalf. You will have ample opportunities to articulate you views through different media channels and speak on conferences thus getting visibility on the market.
