Strong business growth and aggressive statewide advanced fiber optic network buildout projects have Spectrum hiring more than 100 Field Technicians for its Missouri service area including St. Louis.

Spectrum also provides Field Technicians extensive ongoing training and a robust career progression program that includes U.S. Department of Labor-certified Broadband Field Technician Apprenticeship.

“We have a great story to tell about what’s driving our business growth and related hiring at Spectrum,” said Rob Burton, Area Vice President for Spectrum’s St. Louis Area Field Operations. “The evolution of our network, expansion into unserved areas and our focus on execution create the need for more technicians who can provide installations, support network connectivity and provide superior customer service. This is a great role for individuals who want to build a fulfilling career with strong starting wages, excellent benefits and self-paced advancement opportunities.”
