We’re looking for a passionate senior software engineer to bring their experience to a young, growing team working on a scalable, geospatial mapping SaaS platform that will transform the way utilities plan and operate their local and global broadband networks.

The platform is VETRO FiberMap and it is being adopted across the country and internationally by small and mid-sized ISPs and others deploying fiber optic networks.
