What you’ll be doing…
Visible & You
Named one of Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies and “Best Telecom Brand” in Adweek’s Challenger Brand Awards, Visible is on a mission to reimagine what wireless should be: simple, accessible, and inclusive. Visible is the first all-digital wireless carrier in the US, which means we have no stores, no call centers, and no paper bills, allowing us to pass our savings to our members. We have built our member experience around communities and challenging the traditional family plan model in the industry – and we’re having a lot of fun doing it.
Visible is a division of Verizon, but operates uniquely inside the larger entity, taking all the best elements of startup scrappiness – disruption, innovation, and culture – while leveraging the assets and benefits of the larger corporation’s backing. No single day feels the same at Visible.
