“I am able to make an impact on the technological future of the company, as well as mentor and guide newer developers.”
As part of our #SAPHANACareers series we asked one of our Palo Alto based Developers about their journey with SAP and what advice they had to give other developers starting out in their careers.
Mudit was born in India and lived in the UAE before moving to the US. He started as an intern with SAP in 2011 and in 2012 became a full-time developer.
What skills do you feel have been the most important to your career with SAP?
“As a developer, we don’t just write programs; we develop solutions to technical problems. Familiarity with programming languages and technical stacks is useful, but that is a learned skill, and can become outdated quickly. Being comfortable with being uncomfortable; being able to pick up new languages and tech stack; being able to solve problems; and having high emotional intelligence and a fun attitude are needed for this job.”
What does your SAP career mean to you?
“For me, success means being able to make a larger impact on the technological future of the company, as well as being able to manage, mentor, and guide other developers.
In my current role, I am able to make an impact on the technological future of the company, as well as mentor and guide newer developers.”
What advice would you give to those starting out in software development?
“Do more projects, not just those assigned from school or college. Come up with practical solutions to real problems, and make plans to execute on them. Be more fearless and dabble in things that, at the time, may not seem to be directly related to field of study or potential career.”
