  • Delivering technology solutions to clients across industries, such as Manufacturing & Distribution, Education &Government, Consumer & Industrial Products, and Life Sciences &Healthcare
  • Working with clients to understand their current data landscape and advising on the strategy to align with their future-state data landscape
  • Leading and/or participating in the research, design, development, testing, delivery and training of new and modified Workday delivery processes, reports, and tools
  • Taking direct ownership of mission critical data requirements in a fast paced, collaborative work environment
  • Keeping current on Workday releases, roadmap, news, updates, and offerings

Note: The responsibilities for this position could expand to include other duties based on the needs of the company and the skills of the candidate.
