You will consistently exceed delivery on our promises to be helpful, personal, proactive, and committed by supporting our customers with internet, phone, and video services that help them stay connected to what matters most – whether that's making sure families can video chat with deployed service members, ensuring a Twitch streamer is connected late at night when the audience is online, or giving a small business owner faith that their internet connection will power their team through client pitches and product demos.

To quote one of our associates in a recent company news article as to why he loves his job as a field technician, “The freedom and empowerment. We're out on our own on the truck. Our supervisors give us the authority to decide what needs to be done, back us up and support our decisions.“

  • Take the training you gain to use electronic test equipment and online diagnostic tools to troubleshoot customer service drops or outlets, diagnose and repair reception performance issues, and resolve all problems from the customer's equipment to the output of the first distribution amplifier.

  • Due to the nature of the position you will need to successfully work in small and confined areas; lift to 80 lbs.; work on a ladder; and work in all weather conditions. Depending upon the area for which you applied, that could mean very hot and humid, freezing cold, wet and rainy, or a combination of them all.
