MDC is a data center provider with locations along the US-Mexico border. We provide a neutral space where network operators can connect to exchange internet traffic. Our Why is to “create connections that empower people to thrive.” This means that our purpose in life is to connect networks, countries, and people. To accomplish this, we need to identify people who align with this vision, hire them and keep them continuously engaged.
