Common Networks provides suburban neighborhoods with internet using wireless technology. We install antennas in customer’s homes using professional installers or through a simple self-setup process. We interconnect homes in a neighborhood, creating a “mesh” network between homes and our fiber internet sources. A whole community can then have internet service with only a few homes needing to have access to fiber. We're bringing people a faster alternative to the cable companies at a fraction of the cost.

We're looking for a strong generalist to join our small engineering team. We're building a new ISP from the ground up and rethinking conventional wisdom as we go. A typical week involves building everything from front end JavaScript UI to networking control plane software in Go to customer facing mobile apps. We want engineers who are excited by interesting problems, who like collaborating with others and who know that perfect is the enemy of done.

Common Networks raised a $25M Series B from General Catalyst and Eclipse Ventures in August 2018.
