We value people who are smart, passionate and get things done.  Fit is the most important criteria for us when hiring.  So, when we say “fit,” what does that mean to us? To “fit” at WorkWave you must be:

  • Energetic and Outgoing: People can feel your energy through the phone and see it when you walk in the door.  You love what you do and meeting new people and it shows
  • Get Things Done: You’re not afraid to roll up your sleeves, take responsibility and make things happen as an individual contributor but also know how to drive your team to do the same. Once you start them, you like to finish things, not just “checking the box” but making sure that they get done and done right.
  • Empathetic and Respectful: You truly appreciate other’s perspectives. You put yourself in others shoes and go out of your way to ensure that all perspectives are heard and understood before decisions are taken
  • Intellectually Curious: You love learning about people, products, and finding new ways to create connections with stakeholders.
  • Willing to Make Mistakes and Intellectually Honest When You Do: You are not afraid to make mistakes and, when you do, you admit them, learn from them and ensure they don’t get repeated in the future. Placing blame and spending time pointing fingers is not part of your DNA…learning enough to make sure we don’t repeat the mistake is.
