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.

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 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 double digit growth over the past several years, including a whopping 60% in the latest quarter.

We are looking for talented engineers and leaders to join our growing team 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. If you believe you have what it takes to change the course of an entire industry, please ping me because we can't wait to talk to you and bring you on-board :).

Logitech is the sweet spot for people who are passionate about products, making a mark, and having fun doing it.
