Job Description

This is an interim backfill role to cover for an employee who will be out on parental leave.  The duration of the assignment is targeted for 18 months starting in January 2019. However, the start and end dates may change. This is an 18-month LTE position based in Seattle.

The Interim Senior Business Systems Analyst will work closely with HR and Payroll, as well as other teams within the organization, to ensure seamless system integration across all business applications.


  • Lead, manage, and support of HR & Payroll business partners in enabling business process change by designing, configuring, testing and deploying system changes within Workday HCM and supporting applications.
  • Provide knowledge and input to the business on the system implications of business process and security changes. 
  • Manage tier 3 support for end user service requests and break/fix tickets


  • Ability to manage and participate in HR / Payroll initiatives using an agile methodology to deliver system enhancements.
  • Familiarity with HR and Payroll business functions.
  • 5+ years' experience in or supporting the HR function.
  • 3+ years of experience configuring Workday HCM.
  • Strong communication and facilitation skills; ability to translate technology impact into business terminology so business customers at all levels can understand.
  • Solid understanding of best practices in business application design and development.
  • Proven project management skills.
  • Strong ability to successfully deliver in a changing environment while handling multiple tasks simultaneously.
  • Ability to work in a collaborative team environment.

The employee transfer policy applies to internal backfill positions. An employee may apply for an open position after at least 12 months in their current position. If you meet this requirement and wish to pursue a backfill opportunity, you are required to have a conversation with your manager to confirm their support before you apply. In rare cases, the requirement of a minimum of 12 months in a position may be waived if a transfer is critical to the foundation's goals and is approved by the current manager and their HR Consultant (HR Business Partner or Generalist).

All backfill positions are posted as LTE roles. With current manager support, if selected for the role, FTEs will retain their FTE status during the backfill assignment. Managers will have the option of backfilling for the individual moving to the interim position for a similar duration via the same hiring channels and options as this position. However, current managers may be unwilling or unable to hold headcount for the duration of an interim assignment and may deny the employee's request. In such cases, the employee may apply for the open LTE position, but if selected, would effectively be resigning as an FTE and would be hired as an LTE for the duration of the interim assignment.  As an LTE, employment with the foundation is expected to end at the end of the assignment, and the employee would not be eligible for severance.

As part of our standard hiring process for new employees, employment with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation will be contingent upon successful completion of a background check.

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is dedicated to the belief that all lives have equal value. We're committed to creating a workplace where employees thrive both personally and professionally.
