More about us and Logitech:

What is the first thing you think of when I mention Logitech? If you are like most people, you are probably thinking keyboard, mouse and, webcam. However, did you know that Logitech is the market leader in Video Collaboration (VC) equipment in the enterprise market? In fact, we sell more VC equipment than the next two competitors combined!

We are a fast-paced, nimble group with a mission to make the Video Conferencing experience for the remote participant better than being physically in the conference room by using technologies such as Computer Vision/Machine Learning, Cloud Computing and, the Internet of Things (IoT). Our group is run like a startup, by people who have a track record of leading teams in other startups and/or top tier technology companies such as Netflix and Amazon and the results speak for themselves. We have consistently had mid to high double-digit growth over the past several years, including a whopping 81% in the latest quarter.

We are looking for talented engineers and leaders to join our growing team of innovators and go-getters to deliver the next set of revolutionary products. Ideal candidates will exhibit a high degree of ownership, independent thinking, a die-hard, can-do attitude with a burning desire to challenge and change the status quo.

Do you have what it takes to board this rocket ship and redefine an entire industry? If so, we can't wait to talk to you and bring you on board.

kudos if you read this far (we placed this at the end, so you wouldn't have to go through all this, just to get the point, but so that you know:

Logitech is the sweet spot for people who are passionate about products, making a mark, and having fun doing it. As a company, we’re small and flexible enough for every person to take initiative and make things happen. But we’re big enough in our portfolio, and reach, for those actions to have a global impact. That’s a pretty sweet spot to be in and we’re always striving to keep it that way.
