VIAVI (NASDAQ: VIAV) has a 90+ year history of technical innovations that have evolved to keep pace and address our customer’s most pressing business issues. We make equipment, software, and systems that help to plan, deploy, certify, monitor, and optimize all kinds of networks - like those for mobile phones, service providers, large businesses and data centers. And, we are also at the forefront of optical security – we bend light to develop and deliver optical solutions that provide security to the world’s currencies and safety and performance applications for consumer electronics and spectrometry.


We are the people behind the products that help keep the world connected – at home, school, work, at play, and everywhere in between. VIAVI employees are fierce about supporting customer success and we welcome people who bring their best every day to the company -  to question, to collaborate and to push for solutions that will delight our customers.

We expect the candidate to have an outgoing and sociable nature and be able to work with R&D teams, sales organization, and customers. The person must be organized, detailed orientated, and be willing to learn and use business systems.    


The candidate must have good communication skills and be proactive in working with the internal team and customers to find solutions for the fiber optic test needs while at the same time understanding business requirements and ROIs.  This role will involve working with sales, other PLM, R&D and solution consultants and the candidate must have an aptitude for collaborative working and a drive to get things done.  The candidate must be able to handle flexible work hours and a dynamic and changing working environment.  The position will be based in the Ottawa Viavi office, but require working within a global organization.
