Lumentum, headquartered in Milpitas, California is a market-leading manufacturer of innovative optical and photonic products. Lumentum was spun out (in August 2015) of JDSU, a longtime and large Canadian employer. The Ottawa location is one of Lumentum’s largest outside of the United States. In addition to corporate offices, there are extensive on-site laboratories focused on micro-optics assembly, alignment, optical and mechanical characterization, packaging and testing. Lumentum has an extensive history with community outreach in Ottawa: fundraisers for the United Way, the Sens Foundation, and the Ottawa Run for Reach, amongst others.

Lumentum is also active in university co-op programs with students from engineering, science, and business curriculums. Students are involved in a host of varied hands-on programs for product development, customer interaction, and research throughout the year. Lumentum is one of Ottawa’s top high-technology companies and always looking for exceptional talent to join the organization.
