  • You’ll be the primary point of contact to resolve technical design issues from customers (internal and external) during and after installations
  • Provide hands-on management of the most complex projects: leading by personally taking on any difficult problems
  • Beyond day-to-day responsibilities, you'll also develop creative approaches to keep operational costs low and improve the efficiency of our approach to infrastructure deployment

  • Real passion for Starry’s business
  • Ability to meet physical requirements of the position such as bustling about, standing, bending, or sitting for the duration of your shift
