    As a truly global business, are you "raving about the beauty of language"?

    Managing language: beauty in itself

    Yesterday, I was talking to a literature professor from Japan at San Francisco airport. He was raving about the beauty of language: how one word in a text can have so many meanings and in how many different ways we can say the same thing. In my world, the world of corporate communications, these...

SDL – Why Work For Us?


SDL is a leader in Global Customer Experience Management (CXM)

We untangle the complexity of managing a brand’s digital footprint as it grows across multiple languages, cultures, websites, devices and channels.

Customers are better connected and informed than ever before – and full of expectations. To stay competitive, encourage advocacy and take advantage of growth opportunities, global Customer Experience Management should be at the top of every company’s priorities.

We help our customers know, reach, convert and engage with each individual customer across their entire journey.

This year, we launched the Customer Experience Cloud (CXC) that centres on four key pillars:

  • Digital Experience
  • Knowledge Centre
  • Customer Analytics
  • Language

With these enhanced capabilities, organisations can gain more insight into customer behaviour and preferences to guide customer experience strategies, act on opportunities in real time and deliver relevant experiences in the language of the customer.  This enables increased engagement throughout the entire customer journey – beyond marketing and from any channel across the globe.


At SDL, we are helping bring brands to the world in new, exciting ways with our technology. As an employee, you’ll get to tackle interesting problems to transform the way people and businesses communicate globally. And because SDL is a diverse, global company, you will have the opportunity to work with smart, dedicated people across departments so you can continue learning and advance your career.

But the best part is that we are continuously growing. We power the top ten global brands in the world and with 54 offices across 38 countries; it is highly likely we will have the perfect career opportunity for you.


Here at SDL we take our Corporate Social Responsibility very seriously. We recognise the duty we have to the societies in which we work and our Corporate Social Responsibility goals reflect that:

  • We support communities through the SDL Foundation, which aims to promote sustainable development
  • We promote and facilitate employee involvement in charitable endeavours
  • We are committed to reducing our environmental impact

At SDL we encourage our global offices to get involved with a local charity and to give their time and support to those who need it most. We offer employees 5 paid days leave, on top of annual leave, to actively get involved with a local cause. This is a great opportunity for teams to work together outside of the office, which enhances social and working relationships and evokes a real sense of pride and achievement.

We also encourage employees, where possible, to get involved with charitable endeavours that meet the criteria of the SDL Foundation, which enables them to apply for funding and support.

The SDL Foundation is committed to supporting charities and projects across the world, working with disadvantaged communities. It aims to provide sustainable aid through financial grants and educational and vocational training to help people become self-sufficient. It also encourages and enables SDL employees to get involved in charitable activities in their local communities.

    I have been working at SDL full-time


    My manager is flexible and work life balance is great. Travel opportunities.


    I think I'm in the minority of people who have good work life balance at this company. It's gone through so many acquisitions and while management is making strides in improving the culture, it's still sometimes a segmented feeling.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at SDL.


    H.R. did not have the proper paperwork available or updated information that was previously provided several times. It was disorganized and the interviewers were late and rushed. It was not a good experience at all.
