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,

Sling TV – that bucks traditional pay-TV norms and gives consumers a truly new way to access and

country’s most influential inventions and driving forces behind the cord-cutting phenomenon. We’ve
achieved our success by filling our offices with people invested in the medium they’re building.
Our teams are challenging the status quo and reimagining streaming capabilities. From product
development to software design to big data and beyond, our people play vital roles in connecting
consumers with the products and platforms of tomorrow.
We are driven by curiosity, pride, adventure, and a desire to win – it’s in our DNA. We’re looking for
