Job Description

Become Epic!
At Epic we’re working hard to help people and businesses of Malta to unlock their full potential, through our unique approach to telecommunications services. Our mission is to enable everyone in Malta to experience the best of both worlds: great service at great value. For too long, customers have had to compromise between the right services and a good deal.

We pride ourselves for building the strongest, state of the art network in Malta and strive to make it affordable for everyone. We like to do things right, and in the short time we disrupted the industry, which became too corporate and lazy. We launched Malta’s fastest 5G mobile, and optical fixed networks; opened up and promoted no lock-in contracts, and opened 8 new stores just in a few months to be closer to our customers.

Great network and great value – by great people
We work in a highly ambiguous and action-oriented environment which isn’t for everyone, but if you enjoy and understand what it means to change the rules and create something new, Epic is the best place for you right now. We are driven by autonomy, efficiency, innovation and collaboration.

Join us in our journey to change the way people see telecommunication companies and help us create an irresistible combination of great network and great value!
