At Sage, innovation is as essential to the design role as business-mindedness, which is why designers must be both creative and strategic. A successful designer is persistent and organized, yet able to work with cross-functional teams on projects. The senior-level design team members lead with a primary focus on customers, predicting product design gaps that will fill customer needs.
A typical development career path follows several years in manufacturing. The Development team is responsible for determining which design ideas go to market and getting them there. Development handles testing and then hands their product off to production. Most entry-level positions in this department require a bachelor’s degree in business, along with skills in collaboration, communication, marketing and innovation.
Leadership and organization are essential in the Finance and Admin department at Sage. Entry-level positions in this department usually fall into an accounting role. Those who manage their time well, communicate effectively and demonstrate strong analytical skills can eventually advance to roles associated with financial leadership.
An IT professional’s job is mostly problem-solving. Every department at Sage relies on the IT department when technology malfunctions, and the IT team is expected to quickly respond. Those who can adapt to unexpected challenges and are eager to troubleshoot will do well in this role. Most IT specialists begin as developers and eventually move into managerial IT roles.
A successful HR team is composed of adaptable individuals with a variety of skills ranging from administrative to relational. True to the title, a human resources professional must be an approachable and knowledgable resource for every employee. It's important to enjoy learning as well as teaching others because HR is expected to be an expert on many topics, including payroll, benefits, training, hiring and employee relations.
