Collaborative Solutions is recruiting for upcoming graduates who are looking for an exciting, entry level consulting opportunity starting in the winter/summer of 2022. We proudly partner with Workday, one of the leading cloud-based software solutions for HR, finance, student and payroll management. As a Technical Associate at Collaborative Solutions, you will be responsible for developing system integrations for our customers who are implementing Workday as a solution. The integrations you create allow our customers’ Workday system to “talk to” other systems throughout their organization, eliminating the need to transfer data manually – pretty cool! 

Our Technical Associate position is best-suited for self-starters who are eager to work with exciting Fortune 500 companies and dive head first into the build and test phases of Workday system implementations. We provide world-class, on-the-job training; an incredibly supportive network of mentors and an environment that inspires teamwork and collaboration.

  • Partner with our talented Workday Technical Team to learn “tricks of the trade”, consulting best practices, and how to “speak” Workday. 

  • Put your programming and development classes to good use! Work with our integration consultants to translate their technical designs into fully functional integrations.  Begin to hone your XSLT and XML skills to bring your visions to life. 

  • Learn how to best support our customers and how to work with a variety of employees. Participate in, and contribute to, the build and test phases of our Workday implementations, from reviewing completed designs and prototyping integration solutions, to configuration and testing within customer Workday systems.  Track issues and risks, communicate status, and escalate concerns to management.

Collaborative’s Travel Approach

  • Throughout the pandemic, Collaborative continued to achieve the highest level of customer satisfaction in the ecosystem as we worked with our clients to successfully deliver projects remotely

  • As Balance is a core value at Collaborative, we strive to ensure that Collabies find the right balance in their personal and professional lives, and that includes travel

Collaborative Solutions Covid-19 Vaccine Policy

Collaborative Solutions has implemented an Interim Covid-19 vaccine policy that requires employees who are required or choose to be at an office or participate at in-person sales events, or in-person meetings/events to be fully vaccinated. At this time, our vaccination policy applies to roles where job duties can only be performed from an office location or require onsite presence as determined by the employee’s manager or client. Anyone unable to be fully vaccinated, either because of a sincerely held religious belief or a medical condition or disability that prevents them from being fully vaccinated, can request a reasonable accommodation.
