What's in It for You

Why you became an engineer
No two projects will be the same and each will stretch your creativity and technical knowledge. If you enjoy tinkering and seeing the solutions that others missed, this role could be a perfect fit.

Professional development
Whatever your background, you will expand your knowledge of networking, hardware and imaging in this role. We expect the system integration group to grow as we continue to explore non-traditional uses of Canon technologies, and that growth will create opportunities for proven performers.

Training resources
We are dedicated to providing training and development opportunities for all our employees in Canon products, technology and processes, as well as "soft skills" like leadership. Options include instructor-led training and web-based courses and tutorials. In addition, tuition assistance is offered to qualifying employees taking related classes at an accredited institution.

Commitment to the environment and community
Canon has undertaken several initiatives to reduce the environmental impact of our operations and the products we produce. In addition to our environmental stewardship, one of Canon U.S.A.'s strongest beliefs is that we have a responsibility to contribute to the welfare of the communities that we serve. For example, one of our most prominent programs, Canon4Kids, applies Canon product expertise to help locate missing children. Whether originating from corporate headquarters, our regional locations, or our subsidiaries, Canon U.S.A. connects with and supports the community in many ways.

Innovation in technology
Innovation has been a key ingredient in Canon's success throughout our history. We are one of the most prolific inventors of consumer and professional imaging solutions. Canon Inc. has continued to invest a significant portion of net sales to R&D investment each year. Our Canon R&D divisions in Japan and throughout the world are dedicated to developing custom products and solutions for customers worldwide.

Unique corporate philosophy
We embrace diversity in the workplace through the spirit of kyosei, Canon's corporate philosophy. Kyosei means "all people, regardless of race, religion or culture, harmoniously living and working together into the future."  We are committed to creating a diverse work environment where all employees are respected and supported to do their very best. We an Affirmative Action Equal Opportunity Employer M/F/D/V.

Excellent compensation
In addition to a competitive compensation plan, we offer a comprehensive benefits package that covers everything from your physical to financial well-being. We've teamed up with some of the most respected providers in the country -- like Blue Cross Blue Shield, Minnesota Life, Walgreens Health Initiatives, and The Vanguard Group -- to bring our employees the best in benefits. And, unlike other companies that require a waiting period, Canon's health benefits begin on your first day of employment -- just another perk that makes us a great employer.

Video: In the spirit of our corporate philosophy of Kyosei -- all people, regardless of race, religion or culture, harmoniously living and working together into the future -- Canon takes an approach to business that is socially responsible and economically logical. Our company's commitment and contribution to the environment and to the world community are an integral part of Canon's management structure, product design, manufacturing, and corporate culture.

Keys to Success

To excel in this role you will be an autonomous problem solver who takes initiative in developing solutions and/or recommending alternatives. As you interact with external partners you will need patience and the common sense to ask the right questions. Rather than saying, "No, that can't be done," you will say, "Let's see how we can accomplish that."
