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.

Do what you love. Love what you do.

At Workday, we help the world’s largest organizations adapt to what’s next by bringing finance, HR, and planning into a single enterprise cloud. We work hard, and we’re serious about what we do. But we like to have fun, too. We put people first, celebrate diversity, drive innovation, and do good in the communities where we live and work.

About the Role

The Financial & Spend ML/Experience team at Workday is responsible for the architecture and development of the machine learning services powering a range of applications in the financial domain. Our work is a blend of large-scale data processing, battle-hardened machine learning methodology, and microservice design that places craftsmanship at the forefront of everything we do. Built on a backbone of startup DNA, we operate with a high degree of autonomy and strong sense of ownership.

You will be responsible for building and integrating sleek, beautiful user experiences on top of extensive datasets. You have experience in enterprise software, SaaS-based apps, and understand how to build high fidelity visualizations that are picture perfect. You know how to communicate ambitious problems and solutions to business leaders and large development teams. Additionally, you enjoy collaboration, mentoring other developers, and have the ability to work with other specialists and designers in the planning, prioritizing, and execution process to completion. Represent our organization in meetings with executives and effectively debate/explain positions and issues cohesively.

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.
