Inside JDSU

We are winners. We win because we make our customers win. But winning doesn’t just happen without the commitment and knowledge that all employees have an impact on the technologies that our customers depend on to succeed. We win by committing to each other that we always are…

Innovative. Our unique formula is a combination of expertise, creativity, imagination, fueled by passion. We hire only the smartest, most imaginative, success-driven talent in the industry to retain our reputation as the innovation expert.

Collaborative. We partner with our customers and measure success by how well we help each other perform. Teamwork is a way of life at JDSU, and we reward our colleagues when partnerships result in the success of our clients and our company.

Leaders. As teams and as individuals, we promote leadership and progressive thinking. We hire people who are not afraid of the big ideas and for whom the word “impossible” does not exist. Inside JDSU, our entrepreneurial spirit will remind you of a start-up, but with the stability of a large organization financially and structurally.

Problem Solvers. We look beyond being solution providers for our customers’ biggest needs today. We are in front of technology trends to anticipate the needs of the world tomorrow. We aggressively look for talent with unique intuition and that can innovate ahead of technology shifts. We hire superstars who don’t just think outside the box—they create new ones.
