People & Culture

A Community of Values

Each of our international locations has a unique culture that embraces its local community, while sharing the values that make us a strong global company.

Innovation

We develop intelligent wireless solutions based on superior technology that provides value for our customers. 

Execution

We deliver on our commitments together as a team, and focus on quality and excellence in everything we do. 

Trust

We are responsive and collaborative with our customers to help them grow their businesses.

Work Environment

Work environments that set you free to challenge yourself.

Our global locations are inspiring. Our physical offices are professional, with a balance between quiet personal space and open collaborative areas. Some of our offices are also equipped with fitness facilities, bike storage and showers, free parking, quiet rooms, complimentary coffee/tea bars, and onsite subsidized cafeterias.

Here, we grow together.

Even more important is the interpersonal environment at Sierra Wireless, you'll work in small teams creating real products for real-world wireless data applications. You and your team will have a good deal of freedom in making the decisions that make our products better - and get them to market quickly. The pace is fast, the energy is focused, and our people are friendly and collaborative.

Community goes beyond our walls.

Social interaction outside of work with corporate events and activities is organized by our dedicated social committees, who encourage people with shared interests to get together. We have a strong commitment to ongoing communication and dialogue through our quarterly company-wide meetings and the Sierra Intranet.

Celebrations & Community

We love to celebrate.

It takes hard work to innovate in a market as dynamic as IoT. So we take time to recognize our successes, build relationships with our teams, and have a good time. Each of our global locations has its own events - here are a few of the classics:

  • Holiday Parties 
  • Children’s Christmas Party 
  • Anniversary Parties 
  • Sports Tournaments and Competitions

We honor innovation.

We celebrate and recognize continuous innovation through the Patent Award program, which awards cash for the three stages of the patent process: disclosure, filing, and issuance. As well, a plaque is added to the Wall of Fame in our head office.

We value community.

We actively participate in goodwill campaigns and support charitable and industry programs. Here are just a few that we help through fundraising and volunteering:

  • United Way
  • Food Bank
  • Children's Hospital
  • Sharing Farm
  • Pacific Assistance Dogs Society (P.A.D.S.)
