Job Description

DISH is a Fortune 220 company with nearly $15 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 launch of the first live, internet-delivered TV service – Sling TV, which 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.

We have a bold sense of pride, adventure, and desire to win – it is in our DNA.  In addition, we are looking for people with boundless energy, intelligence, and an overwhelming need to achieve to join our team as we embark on the next chapter of our story.
