So, what do we look for in potential hires?
We look for people who are humbly confident; smart and focused while also friendly and collaborative; serious about their work, but who don’t take work too seriously; and who are undoubtedly passionate about customers.

Be authentic. And be yourself. At Workday, we are built from a culture where each person is more focused on “we” rather than “me,” where honesty and integrity are as integral to our success as our innovative products.
