Diversity & Inclusion

We believe that diversity among our employees makes us a stronger organization.

We are committed to diversity and inclusion within our L3 WESCAM family, and our community by welcoming and encouraging applications from anyone interested without regard to race, colour, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, age, disability, protected veteran's status, Aboriginal status or any other legally-protected groups. For people with disabilities, we work with you throughout the recruitment process to ensure you have what you need in order to be at your best. If you require any accommodation for any part of the recruitment/interview process, or as you begin your career with us just let us know and we will take care of you.

Software @ WESCAM

We don’t make apps and our idea of user-experience is a lot different than most other companies.

For us, user experience could mean a Search and Rescue pilot finding an injured hiker in the mountains at night using our infrared optical systems. It could mean a military pilot performing classified surveillance on a hostile target from 25 kms away, while being able to read a license plate as if it were a meter away…

Our software teams work directly with our optics and hardware teams – developing code that manages all of our systems controllers and actuators, or telephoto lenses. We develop advanced real time software for various applications and processors, including new payloads like complex imagers, laser illuminators & targeting designators, range finders and trackers. We develop the embedded controls and user interfaces for complex electro-mechanical systems including remote I/O subsystems, custom lens controllers, and advanced video processing features.

Expertise We Look For

This depends on a lot of factors – but we’ll start with our tech-stack. It’s simple but effective.

* Embedded C with C++

* Python

* Embedded Linux OS.

We look for a variety of subject-matter expertise for our team - from understanding electrical engineering concepts and principles, and control system theory, to board bring up and practical experience with real time operating systems and multithreaded real time code.

We look for software engineers who know thread-safe low level driver development and hardware abstraction layer development. Communication protocols are a pretty big deal around here – whether it’s RS232, I2C, SPI – even Ethernet.

We’re always looking for people who can learn and understand the design and operation of complex interrelated subsystems and complex electro optical assemblies, code refactoring, signal processing, and those who can just simply figure out how to make something work that is theoretically impossible like solving an in-field or in-service problem…

Also, the ability to play a musical instrument is also high on the list – we have 7 in-company bands and we’re always looking for a guitar lead or a drummer.

Life at L3 WESCAM

This is the most important part. Many companies say that their work is ‘exciting’ or ‘challenging’, or that they work in a “fast-paced environment”. Perhaps our definition of those terms is slightly different – because we are one of the only companies in the world that produce what we do, have customers like we do, allow our employees to work on the kinds of things we do, and say with certainty that what we do every day directly contributes to protecting lives around the world.

What else can you expect as an L3 WESCAM employee?

* Every other Friday off

* Free on-site gym

* Subsidized gourmet cafeterias

* Free fruit and bagels

* Beach Volleyball courts

* 26 acres of forested land with hiking and biking trails in the heart of Canada, North America

* Free wellness programs

* Work/Life balance that is taken seriously

* Real opportunities for growth, development and career progression

* Everyone’s role at L3 WESCAM contributes to protecting people’s lives

*As L3-WESCAM is a supplier to several national military and defense agencies, we are bound by the Canadian Controlled Goods Program. Every L3 employee must be CGP-Certified, of which certification requires extensive background screening that L3 Wescam will manage on your behalf.
