Position summary

Department Summary

DISH is a Fortune 200 company 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 https://U.S. corporations in the process, and grew to be the fourth-largest pay-TV provider.
