• Fiber Drop Technician

    ALLO Communications
    Job Description
    It’s a brand new day, every single day on the ALLO field service team. No two homes or buildings are alike, so installing fiber to the premise (FTTP) requires mental flexibility, physical dexterity, and a willingness to constantly adapt to changing conditions. We wanted to title this position ALLO acrobat but legal had things to say about. There is no “business as usual” in this position, you’ll arrive on the job each day to find a totally new environment, new questions, new challenges, and new ways to get the job done right. If you’re a creature of habit, this is definitely not the gig for you.

    If you’re into being outside, trying new things, and can’t stand sitting at a keyboard, we want to meet you. Knowledge and experience are essential to ALLO’s mission, and while we need applicants with real telecommunications or construction experience, character is just as important and we will train the right people. We look for those who have a natural instinct for our core values: Honest, Local, Exceptional, and Hassle-Free. If you can see yourself fitting into this growing team, let’s talk about GIG things together.
