HRIS Specialist – Workday

As our Workday Specialist, you will be supporting the implementation of Workday Core HCM, Talent & Performance, Absence Management and other additional modules in partnership with our internal teams.

Traction on Demand’s hiring philosophy is based on culture, intelligence and then skills. Here’s what we mean by that: 


Culture at Traction on Demand isn’t about drinking beer and playing ping-pong – it’s much more. We are looking for people who want to join an active community of engaged individuals who see business as more than just a vehicle to make money. We care about our people, wider community and planet.  Come join us on this journey!

Traction on Demand is a group of entrepreneurs committed to creating ecstatic clients, doing enjoyable work and being efficient in everything we do.  We fail fast and love to innovate. Change is our middle name.

  • Embrace Knowledge

People often ask what it takes to succeed at Traction on Demand – you’ve got to be smart, without having an ego. What does that mean? Imagine working with a group of your smartest friends who all love to learn. Everyone is always pushing each other to grow and innovate at a pace that can only be called furious. We are never idle or stagnant. We seek and share knowledge. We are comfortable with the unknown. We just “git ‘r done.”
