You value progression and are eager to advance your skills. Being familiar with design and digitizing standards, you’re excited to start building out our innovative and cost-effective broadband systems. You’re comfortable thinking in multiple dimensions to create accurate engineering schematics and design drawings to facilitate data transfer. Whether on independent projects or interdepartmental and cross-functional collaborations, your careful deliberation and attention to detail are essential.
