Why you’ll be excited to work at Vivint Internet

We are on a bold mission to offer a new model to how we provide home internet and connect the things you care about in your home built around our industry-leading millimeter wave technology and our deep focus on customer experience. We are an early-stage company, part of Blackstone-backed Vivint, that has developed a new mesh wireless technology that enables us to quickly enter new markets and offer internet speeds up to 1Gbps with fiber grade capacity across large suburban areas.
