Cable Technician

As an organization, United Smart Tech holds itself to the highest possible standards. We believe that technology should simplify your life, not complicate it.

On some days, you’ll be the let’s-make-it-happen technician who saves the day by getting TV services back up after an unexpected outage. (This is critical, especially for big game days and season finales!). On other days, you’ll be our “rainmaker” technician, upgrading systems effortlessly to maximize entertainment experiences. Seriously, with this gig, you can be the sort of everyday hero that clients depend on.

Best of all, when you join our team, you’ll be joining a squad of like-minded technicians who pride themselves on providing heroic customer service. While our team isn’t quite the Avengers, it’s pretty dang close.
