We offer all the standard benefits, including health and dental, paid time off, a 401k with company match and a great environment filled with energetic, fun, team oriented people.  Most importantly, at WorkWave, there IS such a thing as free lunch.  By bringing in lunch from local businesses each day for our entire NJ staff, we support local business and offer a great perk, all at the same time


This position is currently based at our home office in Neptune Township, New Jersey.  WorkWave’s headquarters will be relocated to the historic Bell Works complex located in Holmdel, New Jersey during early 2017.  There are tons of great places to live in and around the area!



WorkWave is looking for organized, detail-orientated, motivated professionals with strong data analysis skills to work with our clients and Implementation team to convert their data from their current software over to our application.   The conversions often require custom scripts based on a client's special needs, making each project an opportunity to learn and grow.  Our goal is to make every customer a raving fan, and we are looking for people that want to help with that mission...


Specifically, we are looking for people with a demonstrated track record of:

  • Hands on experience with one or more RDBMS database products, such as: Microsoft SQL Server, Foxpro, Oracle, Mysql, Postgres or Microsoft Access.
  • Ability to interact and communicate effectively with customers on requirements and set expectations accordingly
  • Demonstrated ability to successfully work independently


Ability to handle multiple projects: coordinating timelines, meeting deadlines, and proactively addressing issues. Since achieving results “the right way” is of critical importance, the ideal candidate will exhibit the following personal characteristics as well:
