General Description

At Underline, we are driven by a singular mission: to ensure the vibrancy of our nation through building intelligent community infrastructure in a socially equitable manner. We work with communities across the United States to design, finance, and construct open access fiber-optic networks. These networks are essential to secure internet access that’s fast, affordable, and fair. As open access networks, this infrastructure is also the essential foundation for job formation and re-skilling for workers, distributed healthcare services, new wireless solutions, and resilient modern infrastructure including responsible energy creation.

Reporting to the head of Marketing and Communications and working with the rest of the team, you’ll support the execution of Underline’s marketing strategies and community engagement efforts, designed to  build brand awareness and drive adoption.

As the Communications and Marketing team, we are responsible for communicating Underline’s brand in a way that builds understanding, is clearly differentiated, and inspires all our stakeholders about what’s possible. We are on a mission to ensure vibrant, open futures for communities across the country—and we start to build that reality by gathering  the support of each and every community member on the ground. Spend your time helping us connect America, one community at a time.
