Workday on Monday announced it will add 1,000 jobs at its European headquarters in Dublin over the next two years and construct a 51,000 square metre campus.
Workday offers cloud-based applications for finance and human resources for more than 9,500 customers worldwide. Workday said it will be hiring employees across product development, engineering and data science, sales, and customer services.
Workday increased its workforce by more than 20 percent in fiscal year 2022, which brings its total employee count to more than 15,200 global employees.
The plans to construct a new headquarters near the grounds of Technological University Dublin makes Workday the latest technology company to establish a campus-style site in the city, after Facebook, Microsoft’s LinkedIn, Mastercard and Alphabet’s Google bought or leased large spaces in recent years.
“We see great opportunity ahead as we help some of the world’s largest organizations with their digital transformation efforts, including how they adapt to change, plan for the future, and support their employees in the changing world of work,” said Chano Fernandez, Co-CEO of Workday.
Chano Fernandez shared the technology news at an event at Workday’s European Headquarters in the presence of Taoiseach Micheal Martin TD and Martin Shanahan, CEO, IDA Ireland, Workday Executive Vice President, Product and Technology, Sayan Chakraborty and Workday Senior Vice President, Chris Byrne.
Workday reported revenue of $5.14 billion (+19 percent) in fiscal 2022 for the year ended January 31, 2022 with subscription revenue of $4.55 billion (+20 percent) from the prior year.
