Satellite TV Technician - Entry Level
Posted on: December 5, 2019
Summary DISH is a Fortune 250 company with more than $13 billion in
annual revenue that continues to redefine the communications
industry. Our legacy is innovation and a willingness to challenge
the status quo, including reinventing ourselves. We disrupted the
pay-TV industry in the mid-90s with the launch of the DISH
satellite TV service, taking on some of the largest U.S.
corporations in the process, and grew to be the fourth-largest
pay-TV provider. We are doing it again with the first live,
internet-delivered TV service – Sling TV – that bucks traditional
pay-TV norms and gives consumers a truly new way to access and
watch television. Now we have our sights set on upending the
wireless industry and unseating the entrenched incumbent carriers.
We are driven by curiosity, pride, adventure, and a desire to win –
it's in our DNA. We're looking for people with boundless energy,
