Ceridian – Why Work For Us?

Ever heard of a billion-dollar start-up? That's Ceridian, a human capital management company with a rich history and even brighter future since acquiring cloud-based start-up, Dayforce, two years ago.  We have aligned our HCM operations around Dayforce and appointed CEO David Ossip to run the organization. Now Ceridian is creating waves in the category and taking market share from better-known competitors.

By betting big on the cloud, David has re-oriented the company around speed, transparency, and T-shirts instead of suits, while delivering new products and services from a single application for human capital management to modernized employee assistance and wellness programs faster and more effectively than at any time in our history.

David's vision has helped Ceridian customers improve productivity, significantly reduce costs, increase employee engagement and comply with complex ACA regulations. His leadership and focus on teamwork provides everyone with the best of both worlds: the strength and opportunities of an enterprise organization combined with the energy and exciting technology of a start-up. 

Dayforce HCM is experiencing tremendous growth and hiring stars in development, implementation, support and sales. Join the team that is transforming human capital management.

Ceridian actively engages in corporate social responsibility. We believe strongly in giving where we are living. We encourage volunteerism and support our people through volunteer recognition programs and activities. In fact, last year Ceridian employees participated in more than 15,000 hours of community service to over 750 organizations.

We are also proud to be a member of the United Way National Corporate Leadership Program and we have established our own charity foundation called Ceridian Cares. Lead by Ceridian President Dave MacKay, its mission is to improve the quality of life in our communities by providing financial assistance directly to individuals and families for needs outside the scope of other organizations. In our first year of fundraising for Ceridian Cares, employees donated $190,000.

Join the team that is transforming human capital management with a single application. Our award-winning, cloud based Dayforce HCM delivers real-time impact for our customers, like helping Pier 1 Imports uncover $3 million in savings, providing Rush Fitness with a 158% return on investment and Guitar Center’s implementation resulted in a multi-million dollar annual impact on productivity.

Calling all developers -- smart, team players, agile, resilient and results oriented:

  • You thrive in a fast-paced environment
  • You have passion and commitment in everything you do
  • You are motivated by solving problems every day
  • You live for teamwork, playing to win and having fun while doing it

We are streamlining and accelerating processes, improving accuracy, enhancing efficiencies and driving business results. We are tackling and solving challenging problems in forecasting, scheduling, time and attendance, payroll, benefits, recruiting and more.

    I have been working at Ceridian full-time for less than a year


    After being with another software company for many years, I decided I wanted to move to Ceridian after reading and hearing about the great things happening. I've not been disappointed! There is a great team atmosphere. The people are smart, friendly, hard-working and great team players. The management is also great (honest, innovative, and supportive - wanting the best for me as well as for the company). There is open communication, good benefits, great work-life balance, and overall just a great place to work.


    I'm a virtual employee so the only con I can think of is not being able to participate in Fun@Work events.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to push Ceridian to be one of the hottest software companies out there. I love the 'start-up' and innovative atmosphere and am excited to see where this company is moving. I love that you value and invest in your employees and know they are the secret to our success.
