  • For our final #PRIDE feature, we talked to Jermaine Moore from our Detroit office about how he's getting involved throughout the month. "The Pride BRG is going to be collecting clothes and toiletries for a local non-profit named The Ruth Ellis Center throughout June and July. This organization focuses on youth in the LGBTQ community. This collection for Ruth Ellis is what I am looking forward to heading with our BRG. There are so many young people that need support from non-profits and other programs when they may not have that support at home or if they are homeless.” We love this! �� Thank you for your work, Jermaine! #myCDKPrideStory

Through integrity, innovation, and partnership, we’re driving the development of world-class solutions that help our customers stand out and deliver winning results.

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.

Software engineers

Looking for the freedom to innovate and create exciting new technology? We are Agile thinkers and doers, designing solutions that people haven’t even dreamed of yet. We’re looking for people with imagination, insight and dedication to help keep us at the forefront.

At CDK, you'll engineer the next generation of enterprise class software solutions. You’ll also get the chance to solve business problems, network with fellow industry professionals, access continuous learning opportunities as a mentor and mentee, and attend meet-ups to experience trends, new platforms and best practices.

We're hiring:

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!
