Workday Announce a Further 400 Jobs

New Jobs in Product and Technology Development Will Help Support Regional Growth and Continued Company Innovation

Workday VP Chris Byrne says 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.

Finance and HR software provider, Workday, Inc. has announced the creation of 400 new jobs at its European headquarters in Smithfields, Dublin.


The company say its Dublin employees play an integral role in the company’s innovation efforts, so a large number of the new jobs will include research and product development, and software engineering.


Workday is one of the world's leading providers of enterprise cloud applications for finance and human resource with its applications adopted by thousands of organisations globally. It first located in Dublin in 2008 following the acquisition of Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) provider Cape Clear. In 2015, Workday opened its new European headquarters in Kings Building and now employs around 800 engineers there. The new jobs will see it increase headcount by 30 percent.


Chano Fernandez, co-CEO, Workday, said; “Since setting up operations in Ireland in 2008, we’ve attracted some of the industry’s best talent to help develop our innovative products. Our Irish team has helped to shape our technology and ultimately supported the success of our customers around the world. 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.”


Workday's senior vice president, Technology Customer Operations, Chris Byrne, (pictured) added; “As part of this new round of hiring, there are really dynamic career opportunities available at Workday Dublin. 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. 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.”

This announcement further enhances Ireland’s reputation as a premier location for companies in the cloud computing industry, due to the availability of highly skilled ICT graduates and professionals here.”
