Ultimate Software – Why Work With Us?

At Ultimate Software, “People First” is more than a mantra. It’s our founding principle. It’s our way of life. It embodies the respect, trust, and care we have for all people—our employees, our customers, and our community. It drives the design of our award-winning technology. It’s central to our industry-leading customer service. It’s why we give back to the community through continued volunteer efforts and support.

There are more than 5000 employees (“UltiPeeps”) at Ultimate with a passion for people, committed to putting people first every day. The Ultimate Software workplace culture is one that thrives on collaboration and innovation. We work together, we inspire each other, and we achieve greatness as a team.

We believe the best way to satisfy customers is to emphasize innovative, industry-leading products and top-quality customer service. At Ultimate Software, we are focused on providing the best end-to-end strategic HR, payroll, and talent management solutions on the market. We need the industry’s best customer service employees to ensure continued success—for our customers and for US. 

Your work will be both challenging and fun. Your performance will be recognized and rewarded and you will have the opportunity to grow professionally. You’ll collaborate with other dedicated and passionate professionals, applying your talents to surpass goals and achieve results together.

Who better to describe Ultimate’s workplace culture and commitment to “People First” than our own employees, the ones who experience it each and every day? We asked our UltiPeeps to describe what “People First” means to them. Here’s what they said:

Haley Sasser, Talent Operations Specialist

“At Ultimate Software, ‘People First’ isn’t just a sales tagline. It’s something I get to see and experience every single day. ‘People First’ means unexpectedly receiving flowers from Ultimate at your grandmother’s funeral and getting little Valentine’s cards and candies from your team members. Last week, when I spilled coffee all over my light jeans, about 4 people immediately came to my rescue with paper towels, Tide To Go pens, and soap. That’s what ‘People First’ means to me.”

Barbie Espinoza, Inside Sales System Senior Manager

“For me, our ‘People First’ message translates to how I try to live my life. It solidifies the belief that when you do right by others and care for them deeply, with no thought of getting anything in return, it will be reciprocated to you and others—a testament to the notion of paying it forward. You create a cycle of kindness that has no end. Here at Ultimate, that message rings true with everything we do for our employees and for our customers. It feels so good to be a part of that, knowing that the company you work for aligns with your personal philosophy.”


Brandon Bielich, PR and Marketing Writer

“As an employee, when I think about how Ultimate puts its people first, it’s not just the amazing daily perks or the incredible benefits package. It’s the family-like culture this company has created and nurtured from the beginning. It’s the intangible sense of care, support, and belonging you feel—collaborating, achieving, and growing alongside your peers—no matter where you are or what you do.”


It’s not just our employees who see our commitment to “People First.” We’re proud and honored to be recognized by others outside our company, such as Fortune magazine. Scroll down to see our most recent awards!

While we put people first simply because we believe “it’s the right thing to do,” we hope our dedication and continued success inspire others to put people first at their own organizations and in their own lives, too.

For more information on our People First lifestyle, visit our People First blog page or tweet with the hashtag #PeopleFirst. 

Our commitment to people extends far beyond our walls and our campus. Giving back and serving our community is a cornerstone component of putting people first. That’s why we’re always focused on making a meaningful difference.

As part of our commitment to giving back, we provide all employees three, paid “UltiService Days” annually. Every employee has the opportunity to contribute time and support to the non-profits and charities of their choosing.

Our employees participate in a variety of service projects throughout the year, and many have become intricately involved with the causes they’re most passionate about.

Below are videos capturing two community service projects.

UltiPeeps in Santa Ana, California, partnered with Habitat for Humanity to restore a home in the community.

UltiPeeps take part in “Canstruction,” supporting HOPE Outreach Center, Inc. The event provided more than 6,000 canned goods to food pantries in Broward County, Florida.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Ultimate Software in November 2018.


    For me, the interview process was FAST! I applied for the role on a Tuesday night online, and by Wednesday morning I had an email from a recruiter at Ultimate Software. I had my phone interview that afternoon, and an assessment test that evening. Thursday afternoon I had a Skype interview and Friday a final panel interview via Skype. I was incredibly impressed with their diligence and swift process!
