Ultimate Software – Why Work For Us?

Ultimate Software. People First.

At Ultimate Software, we have always put our people first. This idea permeates our culture to its core. For over 25 years, it has driven us to create the innovative products and services we offer today. As a result, we enable our clients to put their people first—helping them build the people-centric environments they need to grow and meet their business goals. 

We believe software should work for people. Not the other way around. Customers choose us for our sophisticated people management technology delivered in the cloud. But we know that it’s the results—how well we improve the personal work experience for you and your employees—that matter most. 

With a focus on people in everything we do, we’ve built UltiPro with comprehensive capabilities and simplicity of use to make your life easier. We give you tools to manage every workforce need—from recruitment to retirement. You get HR, payroll, and talent management in a single solution that seamlessly connects people globally with the information and resources they need to work more effectively. 

We devote 100% of our resources to the research, development, and delivery of industry-leading, continuously evolving human capital management (HCM) technology. Our undivided attention has made us experts in the industry—trusted advisors and business partners who can be counted on to deliver sustained excellence in HCM solutions.

Ultimate has more than 2,800 customers with employees in 160 countries, including Adobe Systems Incorporated, Culligan International, Major League Baseball, Pep Boys, Texas Rangers Baseball, and Texas Roadhouse. 

Our focus on people is evident and award-winning. Ultimate Software is ranked #21 on FORTUNE magazine’s 2015 list of 100 Best Companies to Work For. Previously, Ultimate was ranked #20 on FORTUNE’s 2014 list, #9 on its 2013 list and #25 on its 2012 list.

Our Commitment to People. Our Community. Our Culture.

"People First" isn't just a description of our attitude toward our customers or the design of our human resources software. It's also a statement about our workplace life. At Ultimate, we take care of our employees, and we know it will show in the way they take care of you. 

There are more than 2,300 of us committed to developing trendsetting people management cloud solutions, and passionate about providing the highest levels of customer service. The Ultimate Software environment is a culture defined by the way we think, work, and behave—treating coworkers, customers, vendors, and the community with honesty and respect. 

Walk through the halls of our offices at any time and you’ll see something that’s often lacking in corporate America today: happy, smiling employees. At Ultimate Software, we value our workforce, take pride in their accomplishments, foster their continued professional growth, and encourage their ideas. All of our departments have tenured people who know our HR solutions, believe in our mission, and understand our vision. 

Our headquarters is in Weston, Florida. Perhaps it’s the sun or sea air that encourages Ultimate people to work with intensity, energy, and commitment. More likely, it is a genuine determination to deliver to our customers better HR and payroll cloud solutions than anyone else. 

As individuals and as corporate citizens, the people of Ultimate Software also work to make a difference in our community. We firmly believe in doing the right thing and making a difference, starting locally.


If you’re talented, energetic, and committed to delivering quality human capital management (HCM) software and services, you'll find that Ultimate Software is the perfect place to work. You’ll grow professionally and share your knowledge and experience with coworkers.

Your work will be challenging and your performance will be recognized and rewarded. You’ll be part of a team of dedicated professionals applying your talents to achieving shared goals and delivering results. We're focused on providing the best end-to-end strategic human resources, payroll, and talent management solutions available—and we need the best employees in the industry to continue to succeed.


There are many things that Ultimate Software does to show its employees they’re valued—on-site massage service, dry-cleaning service, indoor basketball court, exercise and salsa classes, Weight Watchers group, birthday celebrations, inter-departmental bowling contests, periodic breakfast, lunch, and ice cream treats, departmental reward trips/programs, and so much more!

Ultimate Software is committed to equal employment opportunity and does not discriminate with regard to the terms or conditions of employment on race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, age, religion, national origin, military service, or disability (provided employee is physically/mentally able to perform the regular duties of his/her job).

    I have been working at Ultimate Software full-time (Less than a year)


    I feel like this company understands the secret to success - hire the right people, pay them well, treat them well, respect them - and watch what happens.
    I feel trusted - I work from home and don't have anyone looking over my shoulder. I want the company to be successful and to have a part in that so I give my 100%.
    Ultimate Software has amazing culture and gives all employees the tools to be successful

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing and no matter how much we grow - and we are growing! - I hope that this culture continues because it's unlike anything I have ever experienced.

    Software Development Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Ultimate Software (Toronto, ON) in February-2017.


    Stage 1: HR phone screening; Stage 2: 4-person panel interview

    - Overall unprofessional interview, panel did not read the resume judging by the questions asked, was rude....interview felt more like an interrogation (they asked for the names of the people I worked with from managers and colleagues).
    - They conducted a background check without consent (despite withdrawing candidacy).
    - Realized later that this panel consisted of acquisition folks (probably not trained in soft skills for interviewing for a large company).
    - HR was extremely professional and deserves the only star.

    - DO NOT get fooled by the reviews on Glassdoor and the Careers page on the corporate website as this doesn't apply to the Toronto office.
    - Office seems to be less diverse (mostly new grads, apart from mgmt).
    - Location good and is a new open-concept office.
