You have expert knowledge on SAP Ariba solutions and best practices. You leverage this knowledge to ensure that a high quality solution will be deployed that will bring value to the customer business, will be easy to use and easy to maintain. You know that you can only achieve this if you collaborate closely with the customer team and build constructive and positive relationships with all key stakeholders.
During the deployment, you provide progress information and escalate project issues to the project manager to help ensure deliverables are on time and within budget.
Project Stream Responsibility
Depending on prior experience, you can take on more responsibility on projects. This could include leading a stream, multiple streams or a complete project.
As a stream lead or project manager, you are responsible for achieving sound, high quality deliverables on time and within budget.

Who are you
You enjoy working in a challenging environment where you are encouraged to take initiative, demonstrate high energy and motivation and have an internal drive to deliver high quality outcomes.
