Just ask any of the thousands of employees who work at Celestica. What you’ll find is a diverse group of committed professionals who share common values and a desire to work together to win. Here are our stories.






Lidia, Valencia

I joined Celestica 12 years ago and today I am a Customer Program Management Manager. Throughout my career, I have worked in Program Management and each day I am challenged, and provided with, opportunities to develop in my role. Although my focus is on Celestica’s business in Spain, I have the opportunity to work with, and learn from, people in Europe, Asia and North America - gaining a vast global perspective. My most memorable experience at Celestica was leading an incredible team in managing a customer transfer in record time. Everyone at Celestica has a positive attitude and is deeply committed to our customer’s success. I am so proud to be part of this team.






Dome, Singapore

It’s been 17 years since I began my career at Celestica, and over the course of those years I have had the opportunity to experience a variety of roles in many different locations. My manager was a great mentor and coached me regularly to help me develop and give me opportunities to work in the areas that I was interested in – today I am proud to be the IT director for the Global Shop Floor team. Working at Celestica has given me the opportunity to interact with a large number of high-tech customers, helping me to advance my skills and move forward in my career. There’s also a good mix of experienced professionals and junior employees with fresh ideas. One of my most proud accomplishments was being part of the Celestica team in Thailand to successfully develop and deploy our own software to all Celestica sites, putting the Asia IT team on the map and gaining recognition from the IT industry like CIO 100 and InformationWeek 500. 






Fanny, Toronto

I joined Celestica after obtaining my CPA designation – and I haven’t looked back. Not only has Celestica provided me with a solid foundation in accounting, they have allowed me to explore my other passions and areas for potential growth. In my corporate reporting role, I had the opportunity to work with, and learn from, Site Controllers and other talented teams in finance. The education I’ve received in this collaborative work environment has been invaluable. Celestica is a company that really cares about developing people to their full potential. Through Celestica’s community giving initiative, I also work with other Celestica volunteers to run a program that empowers high school students to develop critical thinking skills in entrepreneurship. I am proud to work for a company that encourages employees to make a meaningful impact in their chosen field and as a volunteer in the community.






Federico, Monterrey

I started working at Celestica as a technician and am now an engineer. The environment at Celestica is very positive yet challenging and allows me to learn from my colleagues as well as share my own knowledge. Celestica encourages us to collaborate and strive for continuous improvement. As a team, we are highly motivated to work together to improve our processes so that we can deliver exceptional results for our customers. I’ve never been around so many people that are willing to lend a hand and are so focused on doing the right thing for our customers and our company. Celestica isn’t about a job, it’s about a career and a way to make a difference.







Jason, Toronto

I became an engineer because I love problem solving. When I started my career at Celestica, I was only a student, but I knew right away this is where I was meant to be. Celestica’s work with tech giants gives me the opportunity to touch the technology that is changing the world. I have the opportunity to work with employees from around the globe in developing technical solutions for our customers – and we don’t stop until we give the customer exactly what they need. Based on what I have learned at Celestica, I have built the expertise and credibility to work on joint development projects with both the US and Canadian Governments and serve as the president for the Canadian chapter of the SMTA - Surface Mount Technology Association. Being able to share what I’ve learned with the industry gives me a great sense of pride in the global Celestica team.






George, Shanghai

I joined Celestica three years ago and I am now an engineering manager of a product development team at Celestica’s Design Center. One of the greatest parts about working at Celestica is learning about technology from industry leaders and influencing the future of technology. Here at the Design Center, our leaders think like entrepreneurs, we’re always looking for new opportunities to grow, promoting innovative ways to achieve our goals and working to find new ways to make things better – everyday. One of my greatest accomplishments was being part of a team that delivered a program concept to production release in five short months. It was such an exhilarating and rewarding experience and I feel so proud to be part of the team that enabled a global technology leader’s success. 





Ben, San Jose

Working at Celestica has been a challenging, yet enriching experience for me – both as an engineer and in my role on a customer-focused team. I have the opportunity collaborate with many intelligent and talented individuals from all around the globe, helping me to become more adaptive and knowledgeable for my customer and my Celestica team. The projects that I participate in have allowed me to amplify my skill set, paving the way for a promising future for myself. My favourite aspect of working at Celestica is the culture and comradery among employees. We treat each other with trust and respect and work as one strong, unified team to earn the confidence from our customers to deliver on our commitments. At the end of the day, I’m extremely proud of our accomplishments and what we can achieve when working together.
