BendBroadband has been a part of Central Oregon for more than 50 years. We're a local company that believes in the power of community - community among our associates, our fellow Central Oregon businesses and our city's residents. This belief drives us to do the very best we can for our associates and our customers.
Community means support, communication and the knowledge that no door is closed to any of our associates, regardless of level or position. We believe in the power of ideas and creativity. Got an idea to share? We're all ears. We're all in it together and believe that teamwork and community makes us better.
BendBroadband's sense of community extends beyond our walls. We know Bend is a vibrant place with exciting events and activities – after all, we live here too. We encourage our associates to enjoy all that Bend and Central Oregon has to offer.
Working for BendBroadband
Working for BendBroadband means joining a leader in the telecommunications industry. We were the first company in Oregon to launch high speed Internet service in 1997, and the first cable operator in the state to have an all-digital cable platform. Our forward-thinking and progressive attitude toward emerging technology has earned us multiple awards and accolades, including CableWorld Magazine's Small Operator of the Year in 2004 and CableFAX Magazine's Top Ops Technology award in the summer of 2010.
Being a BendBroadband associate also means giving back to the Central Oregon community. As a concerned local company, we are proud of our contributions to the children and youth in their education and athletic endeavors. BendBroadband is also a generous supporter of Central Oregon cultural arts and entertainment. Additionally, we provide complimentary or discounted services to all public schools, fire stations and a variety of nonprofit organizations. We take to heart that we are a local company, and that because we're local, we have to be better. In fact, it's not only our position, it's our brand promise.
The Outdoor Playground
Simply put, Central Oregon is a playground. Whether it's hiking and mountain biking in the summer or skiing and snowshoeing in the winter, we have it all. Bend has a great small-town feel, yet there's a plethora of entertainment and dining options and a vibrant downtown.
Did we mention Bend's family friendly? Bend is a great place for children and was listed as the top town in Oregon in 2009 to raise your kids by Business Week. From Bend Parks & Recreation outings in the summer to the Mighty Mites Ski Program at Mt. Bachelor in the winter, Bend has offerings for kids of all ages throughout the year.
Bend has been called an outdoor mecca and bona fide climbing town by National Geographic Adventure, best trail running town by Outside magazine, one of the nation's top five ski towns by Travel + Leisure, one of the top 10 fly fishing towns in the country by both Fly Fisherman and Field and Stream magazines and the overall top adventure town by Men's Journal. What do we call it? Well, we call it home.
