Andrew So

Tooling Design Engineer


I joined WAVE through my college’s co-op program. During my co-op, I found that WAVE was a great place to get my foot in the industry and I knew that my voice would be heard. Upon completing college, I was offered a full-time position with WAVE and I am thankful to continue to work in a friendly work environment that also challenges me to be my best.

Nazomi Watanabe

Plant Engineer


I joined the WAVE team through the career rotational program. During the rotational program, I was introduced to and worked with many people both inside and outside of my department. WAVE keeps safety at the forefront and ensures that it prioritizes the people that make up the organization. Therefore, it is no surprise that everyone is excited to share their knowledge and work together as a team to consistently improve the company.

CAD Manager – Axiom & Serpentina Engineered Solutions


Being a part of WAVE is a great opportunity. Starting in a career rotational program, I was placed with key players to understand the business both at a Corporate and Plant-level; during each phase, with adequate support, I had opportunities to develop my technical skills while integrating with strategic business functions. Every day prepared me for leadership and I can truly say WAVE is committed to Early Career Development.
