DISH is a Fortune 250 company with more than $13 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.

  • Being the “point of contact” for other departments at DISH (for example, with the accounting department) with respect to the management of programming agreements (both for new and existing contracts)
  • Reviewing contractual documents to ensure compliance to company policies
  • Improving processes and procedures to ensure more efficient access and enforcement of our contracts
  • Assisting with administrative tasks as needed
  • Flexibility to work occasional nights and weekends as deal timelines may require

  • Energy, resourcefulness and a demonstrated desire to achieve; outstanding attention to detail while reviewing and managing contracts; excellent communication, organization and multi-tasking skills
  • A desire to work closely with our legal and business teams on managing contracts, resolving issues and developing new processes
