Your work days are brighter here.

At Workday, it all began with a conversation over breakfast. When our founders met at a sunny California diner, they came up with an idea to revolutionize the enterprise software market. And when we began to rise, one thing that really set us apart was our culture. A culture which was driven by our value of putting our people first. And ever since, the happiness, development, and contribution of every Workmate is central to who we are. Our Workmates believe a healthy employee-centric, collaborative culture is the essential mix of ingredients for success in business. That’s why we look after our people, communities and the planet while still being profitable. Feel encouraged to shine, however that manifests: you don’t need to hide who you are. You can feel the energy and the passion, it's what makes us unique. Inspired to make a brighter work day for all and transform with us to the next stage of our growth journey? Bring your brightest version of you and have a brighter work day here.

About the Team

What is one of the most impactful ingredients for helping Workday users derive next-level, generation-defining insights and predictions? Data.
What is one of Workday’s most critical assets that we must respect, defend, and secure? Data.
What does Workday and its users need to survive, adapt, and excel in a constantly evolving world? Data!

The Data as a Service team provides tools, platforms, and frameworks to Machine Learning teams so that they can be more productive and successful.

There are so many directions that ML can go within the context of Workday, it makes it hard to know which ML applications will provide lasting impact, influence, and business value. Therefore, our approach is: why not enable Machine Learning Engineers to try out all of their ideas? If we can make ML applications easier to build, maintain, deploy, and validate, Workday may be able to find the ML solutions that provide generation defining value and change the way the world thinks about work and their workdays. This is why ML productivity matters right now and this type of ML Application Innovation Factory is exactly what Data as a Service strives to provide.

The Data as a Service team strives to provide industry-leading solutions to data engineering problems for Workday developers and Workday customers. We are made up of an eclectic group of dedicated individuals who pull experience from almost every corner of Workday and some of today’s top tech companies. We take great pride in being relentlessly innovative, intensely encouraging, and persistently positive.

      Our Approach to Flexible Work

      With Flex Work, we’re combining the best of both worlds: in-person time and remote. Our approach enables our teams to deepen connections, maintain a strong community, and do their best work. We know that flexibility can take shape in many ways, so rather than a number of required days in-office each week, we simply spend at least half (50%) of our time each quarter in the office or in the field with our customers, prospects, and partners (depending on role). This means you'll have the freedom to create a flexible schedule that caters to your business, team, and personal needs, while being intentional to make the most of time spent together. Those in our remote "home office" roles also have the opportunity to come together in our offices for important moments that matter.

      Pursuant to applicable Fair Chance law, Workday will consider for employment qualified applicants with arrest and conviction records.

      Workday is an Equal Opportunity Employer including individuals with disabilities and protected veterans.
