Here’s the deal:

We’re on the hunt for an enthusiastic, customer-focused, go-getter to join our Business Installation team. As an Installation Technician, you’ll be the face of ALLO. You’re not just showing them the benefits of an all fiber-optic internet, TV, and phone connection; you’re giving them their first view of the ALLO difference, highlighting our commitment to our customers and their experience. Don’t like doing the same thing every day? You’re in the right place. Our Businesses Installation Techs wear a variety of hats, no two days are alike.

Collaboration, team work, and support are just a few words that come to mind when describing our Business Installation Team. Need some help? You got it. Did you come across a question? Your team is right there to assist. A trouble ticket you can’t solve? A fellow tech is on the way!

Knowledge and experience in telecommunications, networking, or engineering is essential. While a background in fiber optics is definitely a plus, we’re all about character. We look for those who have a natural instinct for our core values: Honest, Local, Exceptional, and Hassle-Free. If this sounds like the GIG for you, let’s talk business!


Here’s what a typical day looks like:

  • Are you a morning person? Perfect! Our day kicks off at 8 AM sharp with a team meeting to discuss the tasks for the day. We’re pretty receptive to anyone who wants to bring coffee or donuts for the crew.
  • Swing by inventory, grab your equipment, and head out to your first appointment. Every job will be different, but could include any of the following: Internet, HPBX, OCIO, SIP/PRI, or ICB installations, trouble tickets, and service calls. Did we mention this is a pretty diverse department?
  • Arrive to the job site, meet our newest fiber fan, and explain the services we’ll be installing.
  • Run fiber lines, splice single fiber, or ribbon fiber if necessary.
  • Install distributed splitter if necessary.
  • Mount equipment – did we mention we’re both exceptional and hassle-free? We leave our job sites looking better than when we showed up.
  • Put those blazin’ fast internet speeds to the test.
  • If necessary, check analog phone lines for that crystal clear dial tone and call out capability.
  • Check that set-top boxes are working with or without TVs.
  • Verify all services with the customer and leave a “Welcome to ALLO” pamphlet. Does the customer need help setting up their Wi-Fi printer? We’re hassle-free, lend a hand!
  • Answer any customer questions or concerns. ALLO’s Honest approach sets us apart from the competitors – if you don’t know the answer, your team has your back and is just a phone call away.
  • Clean up your mess, take pictures, and close out the job with notes.
  • Crushed it! It’s only 3:00 PM and you’ve knocked out your tasks for the day? Give your team a ring and lend a hand where you can.
  • Other duties may include restocking your stylish ALLO van, checking with the lead technicians for extra projects, expanding your knowledge with online trainings, SBC/SIP trainings, or any other tasks.
  • Ability to accept periodic assignments that involve travel away from immediate home office area based on client needs, business needs and project scope.
  • Other duties as assigned.


Here’s what we expect you to prove at the interview:


  • Associates degree or 2-4 years’ equivalent work experience.



  • 2+ years Telecommunications experience.
  • 1+ years performing installations in a business environment.
  • A networking background (C+, A+, CWA) is a plus, but not required.
  • Experience testing and terminating Cat 5 and Cat 6 wiring.


Here’s what our ideal candidate brings to the team:

  • A general knowledge of Microsoft OS.
  • The ability to troubleshoot and work through problems in a logical manner.
  • You enjoy being part of a team and are willing to jump in to help your co-workers. If you prefer flying solo, this probably isn’t the GIG for you.
  • An understanding of email clients and how to configure them.
  • Wire fishing and pulling skills.
  • No fear of heights or tight spaces. See that attic up there? You might need to get in it.
  • You are technically curious and think outside of the box to get the job done.
  • A gym membership isn’t required, but you will be expected to lift up to 50 pounds.
  • A keen aptitude for interacting with customers.
  • The ability to identify windows versions, email clients, and internet browsers and run basic Windows and Apple commands.
  • You don’t need to have the skills of Bob Villa, but you should be handy with power tools.
  • A thorough working knowledge of telecommunications color code, SIP/PRI, and Hosted IP PBX communications.
  • A clean driving record to operate company vehicles – drivers with a lead foot need not apply.
  • Flexibility with daily tasks, including being able to handle multiple interruptions and adjustments to priorities throughout the day.
  • Punctual attendance and effective time management at the scheduled job sites. Habitual snooze button users need not apply.
  • A flexible schedule. Providing our customers with Exceptional service means occasionally being on call after-hours, including nights and weekends.
  • An understanding of the basics of network routing protocols.
  • Safe handling of all products and maintaining company issued equipment/tools.
  • The ability to maintain accurate paperwork (time sheets, change orders, delivery tickets).
  • Ability to travel outside of the home office area for extended periods of time based on project and business need.
