Our Inspiration

At Calix, our mission is to enable communications service providers of all types and sizes to simplify their business, excite their subscribers and grow their value.​ Calix cloud and software platforms are what enable service providers to innovate and transform. However, to accomplish this it requires more than breakthrough technologies. It requires the outstanding individuals who make this possible.

Every day we embrace a challenger mindset and show up with a purpose to inspire our peers and our customers to achieve things that haven’t been done before. In our global company you’ll find creative and collaborative colleagues (contributing from around the world) who are clear about their roles and committed to creating value for our customers, our company, and each other.


Calix’s wins six new awards, making it one of the top work-from-anywhere companies in the world 


“As proud as we are about what we have accomplished, the future is even brighter, and that is a testament to the hard work and talent of our team members. We are hiring to meet our growth goals and are excited to expand our team with top talent from anywhere in the world.”

—Michael Weening, President and Chief Operations Officer, Calix

  3. We take care of our own—This starts with you taking care of yourself, your health and your loved ones before you begin to take care of Calix.

We are relentless in our pursuit of top talent eager to contribute to our success. A few examples are below.

Moved to Vermont and built a house on a lake

That is what one of our team members did after slogging it out in New Jersey with high house prices, and long commutes.

Works from a cottage for 3 months while his daughter tries out for the Olympic ski team

That is what another team member did. We all thought it was great.

Moves between an apartment in Bermuda and a home Nova Scotia

That is what another team member does every year. We will admit—we are a bit jealous.

Sold her house in the Bay Area area and moved to Nevada where she got 3X the house, access to the mountains, and lower taxes

A member of our team did that 6 months ago and she is very happy. She also traded in her terrible cable speeds for a full fiber service.

  • Engagement: I feel proud to work for the company. I would recommend the company as a good place to work.
  • Enablement: My job makes good use of my skills and abilities. Conditions in my job allow me to be as productive as I can be.
