Workday, Inc. (NYSE: WDAY), a leader in enterprise cloud applications for finance and human resources, today announced the opening of its new European headquarters office in Dublin 7, in the heart of the north inner city, as well as plans to create another 200 highly-skilled jobs for the city over the next three years. Taoiseach Enda Kenny TD and Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Richard Bruton TD joined Workday Chief Technology Officer of EMEA Annrai O’ Toole to welcome the company’s plans for continued expansion and job creation in Dublin.
Workday has been supported in its growth by the Dept of Jobs through IDA Ireland.
The new headquarters comes just 16 months after Workday originally committed to create 200 new jobs in Ireland over three years, a target it achieved due to the company’s continued success and growth in Europe. Workday also recently reached an important customer milestone as more than 100 companies with headquarters in Europe have selected Workday.
Workday’s Dublin office, the company’s headquarters in Europe, was established in 2008 following the acquisition of Cape Clear, an industry-leading enterprise services bus (ESB) provider. The new office will serve as a major centre 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 4,500 employees today, with more than 650 based in Europe and nearing 400 in Dublin. In 2015, the Great Places to Work Institute ranked Workday #4 on its list of Ireland’s best workplaces in the medium-sized company category.
