It's fun to work in a company where people truly believe in what they're doing. At Workday, we're committed to bringing passion and customer focus to the business of enterprise applications. We work hard, and we're serious about what we do. But we like to have a good time, too. In fact, we run our company with that principle in mind every day: One of our core values is fun.
About the Team
Once a Workday application is built by our developers it is handed over to the Environments team. This is the team that supports the operations of our applications. Simply put, they "keep the lights on" with 24/7 coverage from monitoring the health and performance of the Workday stack, pushing new code to our existing customers, managing the deployments of new services and capacity adds. This role sits on the Tools and Automation team. They create all the tools and systems to help environments as a whole do its work efficiently.
The team is looking to add a SRE to the automation team, to help in the efforts to create a fully automated process for the deployment of Workday applications.
