The country has long played a role in the HCM software group’s global success
HR software specialist Ceridian is gearing up for expansion across Canada with more than 2,400 new roles opening from 2020 all through the next five years.
This year alone, Ceridian is looking to fill 400 vacancies, with 100 positions open to interns, the company announced this week.
The positions will range from consulting to engineering and R&D, and will be assigned to offices in Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, Winnipeg, Halifax and Calgary.
Canada has long played a role in the HCM software maker’s global success: a number of senior leaders at the company are Canadian, Ceridian’s chairman and CEO David Ossip said.
The country has emerged not only as a global tech hub but also as a destination for companies like Ceridian that want to source world-class IT talent.
“Canadian universities produce outstanding talent that can compete with the best and the brightest anywhere in the world,” said Ozzie Goldschmied, Ceridian’s chief technology officer.
“We want these grads to stay in Canada, join our fast-growing cloud company, and work on amazing products that leverage the latest AI, machine-learning, and payments technologies.”
As one of Canada’s Top 100 employers, Ceridian is known for its talent development initiatives, especially those that promote diversity and inclusion in the workplace.
The enterprise tech firm currently serves 40,000 customers in Canada and is hoping to expand its footprint in North America, Europe and the Asia-Pacific with its “Canadian-led team and Canadian-built flagship product,” the company said.
