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.
