Infinera Adds Business Smarts to Its Instant Network Pitch
At Infinera, we are redefining optical networking.
Infinera is enabling network operators to deliver vast amounts of bandwidth with greater ease. Whether for the long-haul core, metro, or emerging high-capacity metro cloud, Infinera Intelligent Transport Networks™ help carriers exploit the increasing demand for cloud-based services and datacenter connectivity as they advance into the Terabit Era.
Infinera Intelligent Transport Networks enable network operators to create rich end-user experiences based on efficient, high-capacity transport. Today, Infinera offers carriers, MSO/cable operators and Internet Content Providers (ICPs) the optical network platform of choice for ease-of-use, dramatic scaling, low cost of ownership and unparalleled reliability.
Today, over 135 customers in more than 72 countries rely on Infinera Intelligent Transport Networks to differentiate their services, protect their investment and lower operating expense as they scale their network.
Infinera is enabling the connected world by bringing automation, convergence and scalability to the optical network layer. Infinera Intelligent Transport Networks are designed to provide significant advantages over traditional systems, including:
At the core of the Infinera Intelligent Transport Network is a breakthrough semiconductor technology, the PIC. Basically a network on a chip, the PIC solves the cost, power dissipation, reliability and physical space issues in communications. The PIC provides massive WDM capacity in small power and space footprints to handle growing bandwidth needs, while allowing transport networks to scale in other dimensions. By solving the costly translation between the electrical and optical domains, long an albatross of network economics, the PIC enables DWDM optical transport networks to be more responsive to the digital services they carry.
The commercially-deployed, large scale PICs transmit and receive up to 500 Gigabits per second, or Gbps, of optical capacity and incorporate the functionality of more than 600 discrete optical functions into a pair of indium phosphide chips approximately the size of a child’s fingernail.
Ifinera Intelligent Transport Network solutions include:
Infinera Intelligent Transport Networks offer strategic business value to customers and protect investments for the next decade.
Today our innovation continues. Buoyed by our success and fueled by our vision, we are confidently reshaping what the network is, what it can do, and ultimately, what it will be.
At Infinera, we are working to redefine the network but our people define us. We're committed to building a community of talented individuals who value ingenuity, team work and integrity. Here, you'll have the opportunity to work alongside highly respected industry leaders; your contributions will be welcomed; and you'll play an active part in our success.
Imagine being part of a team that is fundamentally changing the way people communicate. Utilizing our differentiated technology, we have created Intelligent Transport Networks with more speed, capacity and scalability than ever before. Imagine a world with unlimited bandwidth. The network of tomorrow will allow for content and creativity limited only by its users' imaginations.
Infinera is a conglomerate of exceptional people from all different backgrounds. Some have come from colossal organizations where their contributions were glossed over. Some of them came from small companies where there was no team to encourage their growth and progression. At Infinera, all of them have found a dynamic environment that fosters creativity, professional development and collaboration.
As the global demand for bandwidth increases, Infinera will continue to provide the scalability required to support this growth. To ensure that Infinera is at the forefront of digital transport technology, our workplace will always be a breeding ground for ideas designed to transform the industry.

Health & Wellness
I have now been on board with the company for 3 months as a sales account director.
The interview process:
For my position I had to meet with people face to face and for phone interviews with people in sales, sales engineering, channels and up to the SVP of worldwide sales. Coordination of these meeting was smooth and my soon to be manager/boss did a great of coordinating things and keeping the ball moving forward. As many people where traveling and had busy schedules I am sure the whole process could have been a few weeks shorter but this is not a complaint so much as a reality of dealing with a global sales organization. The interview process was fairly common and straight forward, it was very apparent that protecting the culture of the organization was a top priority as I spoke with everyone. I can say the whole process was fair and no unusual or crazy interview incidents to report. All in all I had a great chance to interview the company as much as I was being interviewed.
Newly Hired and Onboarding:
From finalizing the offer to getting up and running everyone along the way at Infinera was a pleasure to work with, thoughtful and ready and eager to help get you on and started. Infinera has made a significant investment in getting new hires integrated into the company and setup with the tools for success. All and all a great experience and really shows the character of Infinera as an organization.
The first 90 days:
This has been a gratifying and unique career opportunity and I can honestly say each day thus far has been better than the next. I am excited to get up and go to work, thrilled with the coworkers throughout the organization and very excited about the future and the career I am hoping will be long lived.
No cons to report. Greta place so far
Advice to Management
Please keep up the work on guarding your corporate culture. It has served you well and continues to shine through every corner of the company.
I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Infinera (Sunnyvale, CA) in February 2017.
Received an e-mail 2 days after application on line. The e-mail asked me additional qualification questions. 2 days after I replied, I had an on-site interview invitation scheduled on next week. 30 minutes interview with 4 people separately.
