Be a Part of the Future of Automotive

In March, CDK Global launched the Fortellis Automotive Commerce Exchange™ platform - the industry's premiere platform technology poised to revolutionize automotive commerce.

At its core, Fortellis is about enabling connections and building communities. Many innovations and services are being created today, but there is no universal way to connect them into dealer workflows or with each other to create entirely new experiences.

Fortellis enables publishers to leverage, build innovate and integrate advanced solutions and workflows to transform business. It also offers consumers of those solutions to come together in a collaborative community to work better, faster and smarter.

We're looking for innovators to join our CDK team to help share the future of Fortellis -- and the future of the automotive industry. Join us!

Embracing diversity and inclusion

At CDK Global, we are working to implement and maintain programs that help assure our success in embracing the similarities and differences of people, cultures and ideas. As a company we believe that diversity, inclusion and community investment are fundamental to our culture and core values of fostering an innovative, collaborative and high-energy work environment. Our overall objective is to create an inclusive and socially reflective organization that enables CDK Global to compete effectively in the global marketplace. We are keenly focused on innovation and believe that diversity, inclusion and community investment sit at the root of innovation.

CDK’s Corporate Responsibility Council is comprised of senior executives who guide their respective business units and functional areas by implementing and sustaining successful diversity, inclusion and community investment. Representatives meet quarterly to discuss progress on initiatives and ways to strengthen our commitment to diversity, inclusion and community investment.

One of our commitments to diversity and inclusion is our company-sponsored Business Resource Groups (BRGs). CDK has eight BRGs that serve as a resource for members and CDK by fostering a diverse and inclusive workplace aligned with our mission, values, goals, business practices, and objectives. Our BRGs include African-American, Pan-Asian, Hispanic, LGBTQ, Millennials, Veterans, Virtual employees and Women.

Internships at CDK 

Our interns are making an impact rather than just fetching coffee. You’ll gain hands-on experience and work alongside colleagues with a wealth of skills and experience. You’ll also get involved in Q&A sessions with high-level members of our executive team, participate in internship program focus groups, and present an end-of-internship project to your team and managers. 

In the United States, we have a variety of internships available. In 6 different cities, 100+ college and high school interns become immersed in our offices and culture for 10 weeks of hard work and fun. Every intern is given a meaningful project to contribute to, and is assigned a manager and a mentor who will ensure you learn. The most important thing to us about you is that you have a passion for working on cool stuff and can collaborate with cool people. Join us for Summer 2019!

We recruit our interns in the fall each year for the following summer. Reach out to us to learn more!

Curious what our former interns think? 

Beginning with our 2017 Summer interns, we asked them to capture what it meant to be a CDK Global intern - by interns, for interns to come. As you will see, both our 2017 & 2018 summer interns truly captured the energy, fun and collaboration that you will experience if you work here. Please enjoy!

    I have been working at CDK Global full-time (Less than a year)


    The entire hiring and onboarding experience is so well organized. At no point did I ever feel like they were anything but happy to be talking to me. The training is great. Not only is there a course for anything you could need, but every employee is more than willing to help, including managers. There's never been a feeling of being below or less than anyone else. Not something that I have ever been accustomed to in my entire working life. All in all, there is nothing that they haven't thought of and covered and made easily accessible. Communication is great. My manager has made sure that everyone in the team is aware of what is going on across the board. I know exactly where I stand and I feel valued. In my experience, this is a rarity in jobs. The benefits are excellent and you're eligible for them from the date of hire! No waiting 30-60-90 days to go to the doctor. If something happens and you need to be out sick you've got PTO so you're not losing part of your paycheck because of circumstances you can't control. I've never seen a company so well organized, so well run, and with genuine integrity. Far and away the best job I have ever had


    The online training courses can be difficult to search, find, and navigate

    Advice to Management

    It would be great to give employees a free trip to a CDK office of their choice in another country or even region if they so choose. While that would be extremely fun, I am aware that this may be a bit of a stretch. So, other than that just keep doing what you're doing because it's great to feel as valued as an employee as a client is valued by the company.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at CDK Global (Hoffman Estates, IL) in April 2018.


    Individual interviews with several team members and manager. Then with HR on benefits and etc., Each interviewer had a different focus, assumed skills were there, focused on interest in position and how well I would fit with the team/company.
