Workday, Inc., a leader in enterprise cloud applications for human resources and finance, today announced plans to create 200 new positions in Ireland over the next three years. Workday Co-Founder and CEO Aneel Bhusri met with Taoiseach Enda Kenny to discuss expansion plans as part of the IDA Ireland investment mission.
The expansion builds on a three-year commitment made by Workday in 2012 to create 100 new positions.
Workday’s Dublin office serves as a major center for key roles in product and technology development, customer support, services, data centre operations, and sales. Recruitment for the new positions on those teams is currently underway.
Workday has more than 2,900 employees today, including more than 350 based in Europe. With approximately 200 employees based in Dublin, the expansion plans are expected to double the current team over the next three years.
Taoiseach Enda Kenny welcomed the news saying:
Winning international investment in areas like the high growth technology sector is essential to our recovery plan and a testament to our exceptionally talented workforce and our business-friendly environment. The Government's trade mission to San Francisco and Palo Alto this week is part of our strategy to reinforce existing investor relationships and build new connections in the USA so that we can continue to secure new jobs and investment for Ireland.
