The cloud enterprise company Workday is planning to bring 200 jobs to Dublin over the next three years, following the opening of its new European headquarters in the capital.
The announcement of the new Workday headquarters – to be based in Dublin 7 – follows on from a 2014 announcement, which indicated that the company planned to create 200 new jobs in Ireland over three years, an aim the company says it has already achieved.
These further 200 jobs will be in highly-skilled roles, Workday says, and will increase their workforce in Dublin to 600 staff, bringing their total employee numbers worldwide to 4,700.
The company says the new office will act as one of their major centres for product and technology development, customer support, services, data centre operations and sales. Roles in these areas will be the focus of recruitment, which is beginning immediately.
Founded in 2005, Workday offers financial management, human capital management and analytics applications designed for large-scaled institutions, including multinational companies, educational institutions and government agencies.
Workday’s Dublin office was established in 2008 following the acquisition of Cape Clear, an industry-leading enterprise services bus (ESB) provider.
“Culture, technology and talent are key ingredients in making Workday a great place to work for employees, and to ensure we continue delivering the highest levels of customer satisfaction in the industry,” said Annrai O’Toole, chief technology officer, EMEA. “Dublin is a growing hotbed of highly motivated, highly skilled technologists, and we are actively expanding our team to drive our growth and customer success.”
