Workday announces 400 New Jobs
Enterprise software company Workday is expanding its European headquarters with plans to grow its workforce in Ireland by 30pc – creating 400 new jobs, recruitment beginning immediately. There will be opportunities in sales, customer operations and other functions, but most of the new roles will span product and technology development, including software development.
Workday provides enterprise cloud applications for finance and human resources. It currently employs more than 1,300 people from all over the world at its European headquarters in Smithfield, Dublin, including more than 800 engineers.
The company first arrived in Dublin in 2008 following the acquisition of Irish tech company, Cape Clear.
Workday’s co-CEO, Chano Fernandez, said the team in Ireland has helped to shape Workday’s technology and support the company’s global success. “With this added support, we’ll be able to continue this great progress by expanding our efforts in the region and fostering a great culture in our Dublin office.”
Chris Byrne, senior vice-president of technology customer operations at Workday, said there are very dynamic career opportunities at the company as part of the new round of hiring. “Applicants have the chance to join a team at an innovative technology company with a strong global brand, known for being a great place to work,” she said.
“Not only does our team support the company’s regional efforts, but we’re also committed to the community at Smithfield, regularly volunteering and participating in local projects.”
‘We look forward to returning to our in-person community engagement as the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic subsides.’
Taoiseach Micheal Martin said the announcement was a ‘great vote of confidence in Dublin, and in Ireland, as a place to do business’ while Tanaiste said it was a ‘real boost at a time when so many people are out of work’.
Hiring will commence immediately, and the investment is supported by the Irish government through IDA Ireland.
