Who is Pragmatic Works?

We’re a team of dedicated and passionate SQL Server and BI professionals on a mission to help developers and DBAs operate more efficiently through our innovative products, solutions and training for data platforms. We offer software that simplifies the development and management of SQL Server, and we deliver top-tier SQL Server training offerings and consulting services for even the most complex data management, big data, cloud and business intelligence projects.


We believe a company culture should be more than a poster hanging on a wall or a laminated sheet in someone’s cube. By taking pride in what we do and having employees who share our mission, we’ve created a culture that’s dynamic, gratifying and most importantly - real.

Be Humble.

Have confidence but remain humble and approachable. We're only as successful as the team.

Listen Then Deliver Wow.

Understand what our customers truly need and deliver wow. Bring value by listening to their issues and thinking outside of the box.

Never Stop Learning.

Technology is ever-changing and we're tasked with bringing that to our clients. We can't help our clients be their best if we're not at our best.

Never Stop Teaching.

Foster growth through mentoring and teaching others. Lead by example and always look for opportunities to make a positive impact.

Always Be Connected.

This is a team effort and we need to stay connected to our project teams and our clients. Communication is key!

Be Fun, Creative and a Little Weird.

Always be yourself and inject creativity into everything you do. It’s the passion of our team that sets us apart... and what makes this job so much fun!
