Your work days are brighter here.

At Workday, it all began with a conversation over breakfast. When our founders met at a sunny California diner, they came up with an idea to revolutionize the enterprise software market. And when we began to rise, one thing that really set us apart was our culture. A culture which was driven by our value of putting our people first. And ever since, the happiness, development, and contribution of every Workmate is central to who we are. Our Workmates believe a healthy employee-centric, collaborative culture is the essential mix of ingredients for success in business. That’s why we look after our people, communities and the planet while still being profitable. Feel encouraged to shine, however that manifests: you don’t need to hide who you are. You can feel the energy and the passion, it's what makes us unique. Inspired to make a brighter work day for all and transform with us to the next stage of our growth journey? Bring your brightest version of you and have a brighter work day here.

About the Team

The Workday Test Centre of Excellence are driven by a passion for our products and the success of our customers in implementing our best in class cloud solutions. We’re a diverse group of people, with an invaluable mix of experience and backgrounds, located across multiple locations within the region.

About the Role

Our team promotes Workday’s core values with ‘Employees’ being the first of them. This is why we:

  • offer flexible work schedules;

  • empower you to follow your desired career path & achieve professional and personal goals

  • encourage work-life balance and wellbeing;

  • are proud to champion equal opportunities for everyone.

We are often remote from one another but that doesn’t stop our sense of collaboration, supportiveness and fun! 

Implementing a new HCM, Payroll or Financials business application is a significant project for any company. At Workday, we realise that a comprehensive and effective testing program is as critical as configuring the application itself. Our Workday Test Lead will lead and assist our customers with this effort. We are looking for experienced Testing professionals to join the team. 

The Workday Test Lead is a key member of engagement teams, who advises and guides customers through not only the development of a testing strategy and plan, but also conducting testing.

You'll ensure the Workday solutions meet desired business requirements and can be used effectively in their targeted business environments by:

  • Provide guidance to the Customer Test Lead on the development of testing strategies and planning

  • Guide the customer to define business processes and map test scenarios to business processes in preparation for testing.

  • Work with the Customer Test Lead and the Customer Subject Matter Experts to ensure testing scenarios are created in accordance with project quality standards.

  • Guide the Customer Test Lead on the scheduling of testing activities, including coordination of rooms, equipment and testing resources.

  • Serve as the overall Testing Manager responsible for testing administration, testing tools, testing preparation, status updates, and overall incident reporting.

  • Work with the Customer Test Lead and the Customer Subject Matter Experts to ensure all test scenarios are executed and results documented in each cycle: unit testing, end-to-end testing, user acceptance testing, parallel testing, regression testing and performance testing.

  • Prepare final reports after each test phase is completed – unit testing, end-to-end testing, user acceptance testing, parallel testing, regression testing and performance testing.

Our Approach to Flexible Work

With Flex Work, we’re combining the best of both worlds: in-person time and remote. Our approach enables our teams to deepen connections, maintain a strong community, and do their best work. We know that flexibility can take shape in many ways, so rather than a number of required days in-office each week, we simply spend at least half (50%) of our time each quarter in the office or in the field with our customers, prospects, and partners (depending on role). This means you'll have the freedom to create a flexible schedule that caters to your business, team, and personal needs, while being intentional to make the most of time spent together. Those in our remote "home office" roles also have the opportunity to come together in our offices for important moments that matter.
