Join the DZS Team

We believe the world is a better place when everyone and everything is connected to the Internet-economy via ultra-high-speed Internet access on-ramps.

As a company, our mission is to enable everyone and everything to be connected to ultra-broadband access networks.

As an employer, we want employees to create meaningful connections with customers and end-users while you continue to grow both personally and professionally, and share your experiences to make a better-connected world.


Our Core Values

Our values capture what we are known for doing: changing the connected world, focus intensely on customers, make innovation happen, win together, respect and care for each other, and always do the right thing.


We treat our DZS peers with respect; we engage in spirited discussions; we encourage opposing points of view; we expect the occasional debate and disagreement; and we do all this with consideration and respect for our DZS peers.


We challenge the status quo through an entrepreneurial spirit and an insatiable appetite for winning; we focus on best-in-class innovation and deliver the solutions our customers require for success; internally we drive for efficiency, operational excellence and creative approaches to problem solving.

Thinking Big

As a global leader of intelligent, packet-based mobile transport and broadband access, we operate with unrivaled vision, innovation and execution. We never settle; in everything we do, we challenge our ideas of what’s possible to ensure we are the solution provider of choice for the marketplace.


We accept personal responsibility for our decisions and contributions; we build trusted, transparent, mutually beneficial and sustainable partnerships with our DZS peers, customers, and investors by continually exceeding expectations. When we get it right, we celebrate. When we make an error, we take ownership and correct it.


We operate with a code of conduct and behavioral standard that reflects our desire to ensure we achieve our mission in an ethical and honest manner. We are honest. Our word is our bond – we honor our commitments to our investors, our customers, and our peers.


We contribute to our communities through a commitment to diversity & inclusion, environmental awareness, the protection of human rights, and volunteerism.

A Winning Culture

Be part of a team that values everything you are and all that you have done.

Our culture embraces change for the better, and seeks to always make choices and decisions that improve how we run the business and serve our customers. A culture that thrives on people making a difference...in both life and work activities.

“Frequent, clear, candid, and open feedback is one of the most important gifts we can provide to help all employees and DZS succeed. Feedback needs to be offered with sincerity and encouragement. We need to operate as a team and relentlessly ensure DZS is a place we enjoy working at by helping each other learn, grow, and excel in everything we do.”

Charlie Vogt
President & CEO


Employee Philosophy

“My goal is to achieve the extraordinary and continuously challenge traditional ways of doing things.”

“I am accountable for my work; I am a driver who continually adapts processes, products, and solutions, independent of challenges associated with change. A change agent always takes that risk to better a process, or a solution, for customers and peers.”

“Exceeding expectations is a significant part of my job. Every day is about creating value and contributing to our success. To me, the only way to exceed expectations is to create a new level of performance, and new ways of working through innovative and creative thinking.”

“Yesterday I focused on out thinking the competition and developing a strategy for success. Today I am implementing that strategy. And tomorrow I will revise it.”

“My commitment to DZS is to work diligently with relentless passion each day to support my peers, our investors and our customers to the very best of my abilities.”

“I will contribute to the DZS vision, mission, and core values with passion and a relentless pursuit of excellence.”
