Senior Manager Information Security - SAP Security

At adidas, our love for sport drives who we are and what we do. But just as a ball is more than leather and thread, and a show more than padding and plastic, we are bigger than our products. We don't just work to create faster shoes and lighter fabrics. We strive to help athletes everywhere perform their best. We believe that it's hard work inventing the future of sport, and that's why we love it; that when you push your limits, you make it possible for others to push theirs.

We believe that through Sport, we have the power to change lives.

To change lives, we have to create direct relationships with consumers and the best way to accelerate building direct relationships is through Digital.
