This, and its commitment to developing all associates to realize their full potential, has contributed to JDA’s consistent growth and profitability while attracting and retaining top talent.

“We are proud to once again be recognized in Arizona as a top company to work for,” said Girish Rishi, chief executive officer (CEO), JDA. “As we continue to attract and hire top digital talent, it is important that our culture shines through in everything that we do. Now more than ever, JDA associates live and breathe our culture and are as obsessed with our core values as I am. This is what sets JDA apart from other companies.”

JDA’s core values of Results, Relentless and Teamwork serve as the bedrock of the company, working to unite and engage associates and executives alike. These core values are also what drives success, profitability and growth for the company as well as results for its more than 4,000 customers. Since the introduction of these new core values in 2017, JDA has seen a meaningful shift as the values provide inspiration, unite associates and are used as a compass for decision-making. 

JDA is headquartered in Scottsdale and counts 700 leaders and executives and 400+ associates locally in Arizona.

JDA prides itself on driving commitment to learning and innovation, while fostering teamwork as a critical component to success. JDA encourages associates’ success as the heart of the company, with a focus on developing all associates to realize their full potential.  For example, all associates are encouraged to take one day of paid volunteer time off each year to serve at a charity of their choice within the local community, as JDA recognizes that participating in these activities will enrich and inspire the lives of its associates.
