Job Description:

Ciena may well be the most important technology company you've never heard of.

But those companies rely on Ciena, another vanguard of innovation, to create and advance the underlying networks that bring their breakthroughs to our doorsteps. VR, AI, IOT, 5G --- literally none of it would be possible without the mind-boggling technology that makes the internet itself work.
