Join our team and experience Workday!

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.

Job Description

Our production infrastructure team supports a continuously growing environment that runs the Workday service. Traditionally we've been data center based, with loads of physical servers and physical networking devices.  Over the past few years we've been migrating services to Openstack and SDN based technology.  

This is an exciting, brand new, role for our group. You will be in charge of shaping the team, architecting infrastructure components, launching new products, and running daily operations for our private cloud deployments in Openstack. Having a deep passion for Openstack and virtualization will be one of the keys to your success; you must love and embrace what virtualization brings (scale, self-service, redundancy, etc, etc)

About you and the role...

  • Your team will be accountable for all things related to Infrastructure in the private cloud; servers, networking policies, firewalls, load balancing, infrastructure services, maintaining availability and hitting KPIs .  You need to be an Infrastructure or Devops geek at heart.

  • You must have a strong operations mindset, with a bias towards automating any problem you come across. You know what it takes to keep our service up 24/7 while enabling engineers to perform 100's of changes transparently throughout the day.

  • Scalability is not an afterthought, it's a way of life. You design solutions that are robust, fault tolerant, and encourage others around you to do the same.

  • The mindset you bring to the job is Product focused; you constantly think about what's needed to enable our product teams to move faster and provide a more transparent infrastructure.

  • Relationships matter to you; both with your engineers and with others.  Your team will partner with a variety of groups in your quest to provide the best experience for our Developers, Application and Customer Support teams and even working directly with our customers.

And some other stuff...

  • You MUST have experience running and maintaining a 24x7 Internet-oriented production environment, preferably across multiple regions.

  • You display a solid grasp of Linux (CentOs), Openstack, and networking fundamentals. Knowledge of scripting, configuration management,  and a history of building automation and tolling is a huge plus.

  • Fundamental understanding of enterprise level security, and how to apply it to the Private Cloud.

  • At least 10+ years in a technology management role

  • Professional degree (BS or higher) in a technology oriented field is preferred.

Sound interesting?  Apply now! We'd love to talk with you about this opportunity.
