A worldwide software company, originally based out of Germany, says it will recruit individuals with Autism “for jobs as software testers, programmers, and data quality assurance specialists”.
SAP conducted a pilot program in India where six individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder were employed as software testers, and the company says that the program resulted in increased productivity for that department. SAP is partnering with Specialisterne, a Danish company that assists individuals with autism in finding placement in the technology arena, and will expand the pilot program to Ireland, United States, Canada, and Germany this year.
