Spectrum to Nearly Double the Size of its Coppell Network Design Center
Nearly 100 New Designers Needed to Support its Fiber-Optic Network Evolution and Expansion
In-Person Interviews Available on March 22 and 23
COPPELL, Texas – Spectrum today announced it is seeking nearly 100 new broadband network Designers as part of its plan to nearly double the size of its Coppell-based network design center. These new jobs will support Spectrum’s network evolution and expansion plans, which will deliver multiple gigabit broadband speeds across the company’s 41-state service area, as well as fiber-optic network construction that will bring broadband to more than 1 million additional homes and small businesses.
The Designer roles integrate information from on-site engineers to develop and produce network designs used by Spectrum construction teams across the country. Spectrum currently has 100 Designers in Coppell, its largest design center. Overall, Spectrum employs more than 15,500 [AS1] [RRA2] people in Texas, the most of any state in its service area.
“Our commitment to evolve our network to deliver faster broadband speeds and to expand our network’s reach to unserved homes and businesses is creating tremendous opportunity for Designers at Spectrum,” said Jeff Ethier, Group Vice President, Network Engineering & Design at Charter Communications, Inc., which operates the Spectrum brand of connectivity services. “We’re looking for talented professionals with CAD training, excellent computer skills and the ability to handle multiple projects as we nearly double the size of our design team in Coppell.”
Spectrum will host in-person interviews for the new Designer positions in Coppell on March 22 and 23. Interested candidates can learn more about the role, apply online and register for an interview here.
