Here’s the deal: Are you business in the front and the back? We need detail-driven go-getters to join our competitive team of business professionals. Whether you’re setting up new service, solving a problem, or coordinating with a vendor, we expect the business team to build and sustain lasting connections. If your gift for gab doesn’t translate on the phone, this probably isn’t the GIG for you. On the other hand, if you love building relationships and are looking to expand your career at a growing company that knows daily high-fives are just as important as annual reviews, we want to meet you. Knowledge and experience are essential, when we peruse your resume we’re most impressed by someone with a customer service background, but character is just as important. We look for those who have a natural instinct for our core values: Honest, Local, Exceptional, and Hassle-Free. Advanced fiber-optic knowledge isn’t required, so if going the extra mile doesn’t make you sweat, let’s talk business together.

Here’s the deal: Let’s be honest, most people don’t like problems. We’re not looking for most people. We’re looking for those unique individuals who live on the edges of normal, see problems, and thrive on the challenge of solving them.  If you like being right in the middle of the action, our Tier II Technical Support might be the perfect GIG for you. This team provides inbound technical support to our customers and serve as the point of contact for the rare but particularly important moments in time when our services falter.  Focused, cool under pressure, and committed to teamwork, Tier II is known for pulling all of their resources together to ensure a fast and responsive resolution.  In their own words, the Tier II Technical Support group is proudly “Nerdy by Nature” and they have the t-shirts to prove it!  Each team member brings their own piece of ‘Nerdy’ to the team, complete with action heroes on their desks.  This tight-knit group loves puzzles (even taking the occasional trip to the local Escape Room) and working together to figure out that one-off issue that seems to stump everyone, discussing it, and finding a solution.  We don’t require pocket protectors or slide rules, but you do need to have a thirst for tech knowledge, be able to build on it, and share what you’ve learned with your teammates.  We love people who think outside the box to resolve issues more efficiently.  Customer service experience is definitely a plus.  We also look for those who have a natural instinct for our core values: Honest, Local, Exceptional, and Hassle-Free.
