ABOUT JSI & OUR MISSION:

For the past 60 years, JSI has been one of the undisputed leaders in consulting and broadband solutions for Rural and Tier II Service Providers. Today, our company is deeply committed to creating equal opportunities for all Americans by closing the digital divide in our country. As part of that commitment, JSI recently acquired Mid-State Consultants, Inc.—a premier telecommunications engineering firm with a focus on rural broadband access issues—to further assist our clients as they try to take advantage of the unprecedented amount of state and federal funding that is now available for the expansion and maintenance of broadband networks across the United States.

To support its strategic expansion, JSI is now seeking on behalf of its Mid-State Consultants division several talented Outside-Plant (OSP) Field Engineers who possess a genuine interest in:

  • Working outdoors and having the flexibility and travel opportunities that such positions typically afford;

  • Having the opportunity to learn how to use cutting-edge and proprietary technology to better serve our clients as well as for personal career-advancement purposes; and

  • Helping our company to ensure that no American is left on the wrong side of the digital divide, without access to vital healthcare, education, and telework options.
