This is not your archetypal IT job - we need an SAPDeveloper/Analyst: Must love technology, data, end users (yes we know), writing killer code, and solving real business problems!

At Arden, we are continually looking for new and innovative approaches in business analysis and the integration of cutting edge technology to support our operations in product development, engineering, supply chain, and manufacturing.

We believe speed, precision, and efficacy are critical to our success. This position will develop your knowledge in many aspects of Arden’s operations and IT systems.

You will have the prospect to see the direct impact of your work! You will solve real business problems and provide solutions to actual people who work with you every single day.

You will be part of a team that takes pride in working with our business partners to deliver world class solutions and in providing a competitive edge for every aspect of Arden’s operations. In this role, we are responsible for the full development cycle and have the great benefit of seeing our ideas and implementations have direct impact on the company and its bottom line.

We have a variety of technologies in play - legacy systems, current tech and some rather cutting-edge systems too. This position’s primary focus is SAP and leveraging it as a platform for future growth and increased operational productivity.

So, if you have taken a class, taught yourself, or learned ABAP on the job, we would love to talk to you! Please note that we are only looking for candidates interested in the “long haul”. We are not looking for temps or consultants. We want honest to goodness, real-deal DEVELOPERS who want to increase their knowledgebase, be part of a team, and do challenging real work.
