The available jobs offer “competitive” salaries and benefits, including health care coverage that starts on the first day of employment and a 401k program that matches up to six percent of an employee’s salary contribution. The company said it also offers tuition reimbursement, adoption assistance and bonuses to its employees.

Verizon, which employs more than 2,500 people in New England, said it spent $245 million on wireless network upgrades in New England last year and has spent a total of $3.6 billion on the region’s network since its inception in 2000.

“Our employees are at the core of who we are, and we know New England offers a pool of top-quality, highly skilled talent,” Verizon Wireless New England president Christine Berberich said in a statement.

“Verizon Wireless is a growing company in an exciting industry, and we are hiring here in New England to ensure we continue to deliver the outstanding experience our customers expect,” she added.
