International Content Lead

| Greater Denver Area

Summary

DISH is a Fortune 250 company with more than $14 billion in annual revenue 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 U.S. corporations in the process, and grew to be the fourth-largest pay-TV provider. We are doing it again with the first live, internet-delivered TV service – Sling TV – that bucks traditional pay-TV norms and gives consumers a truly new way to access and watch television. Now we have our sights set on upending the wireless industry and unseating the entrenched incumbent carriers.

We are driven by curiosity, pride, adventure, and a desire to win – it’s in our DNA. We’re looking for people with boundless energy, intelligence, and an overwhelming need to achieve to join our team as we embark on the next chapter of our story.

Opportunity is here. We are DISH.

What are Sling TV Perks + Benefits

Sling TV Benefits Overview

Our downtown office is across the street from Union Station, so you can sit back, take the rail and walk a block to work. There's even a bike rack for those who bike to work! The vibe is industrial-tech with plenty of natural light and whiteboard space to collaborate with your team. We always have snacks, drinks, and coffee. We even encourage a competitive game of foosball, ping pong, or Guitar Hero.

Our corporate headquarters is integrated with the DISH HQ. Don't worry, if you like to take the light rail, we are near a stop and the Meridian circle has a shuttle on call! The building has real trees and a waterfall in the atrium, a cafe and 24-hour market. We also have ping pong tables for when employees want to take a break. The vibe is tech-trendy and encourages innovative thought with multiple breakout and meeting rooms.
