Better Careers Start Here!

Join a company that fosters career growth through formal job training and strategic leadership development programs. The amazing career opportunities at Hunter Communications are fueled by our rapidly expanding, state-of-the-art fiber internet and world-class customer service. 

At Hunter Communications, all employees are provided a rich, fully paid benefit package including medical, dental, vision, disability coverage, life insurance, and an employee assistance program. We offer very generous vacation, sick, and holiday time off, a 401k program with a generous employer match, and numerous bonus opportunities.

At Hunter Communications, we push the boundaries for Internet service by delivering the fastest and most reliable Internet available through fiber optics, while also reaching difficult areas wirelessly that other providers are often unwilling to serve. Excellence in customer service is our most important goal and we measure our success by the feedback from our customers. We are a community-centered company that is driven to make a positive impact on our region. Our team has a high level of trust and competence and our reputation throughout the community is excellent. Our focus is on quality of life for our team and that's reflected in our success, chemistry, long-tenured employees, and benefits. We strive to make a difference in the community we live in. Putting all people first, doing the right thing, going the extra mile, and fighting for our customers are foundations of our company.
