This question isn't about the service so much as the company itself. Please don't throw bricks at me or drop the ban hammer.

Is responding to posts on the forum your whole job? If so, do you have spots open and where do I apply? I looked on ViaSat's website and couldn't find anything.

I'm just looking for an outlet for my tech knowledge and Google-Fu (as well as gainful employment). And working for my ISP would be cool I guess.

You have to consider the fact that the forum Mods are corporate level employees. Seldom do new job seekers start at the top of any organization.

Hi Jesse

The moderators on here are all corporate employees for Exede. The Social Media team that myself, Lindsey and Diana are on is a branch that handles customer communication through social media channels and emails but we're doing the same thing as our on the phone counterparts do (ie if you talk to someone in the corporate office or fax something to the corporate office) just with us doing it through social media and emails (sort of evolving into a method that some people, myself included, would prefer to have assistance than the traditional phone call).

 The forum is one of many parts of our day. We use this forum first and foremost as a self-help community and then as a sort of a way to reach out to some of our customers, make announcements about trial programs (like eSVT and EasyChat) and so on.

With that said viasat.com/careers is where you'll find openings if you're interested in working for us.
