In the last five years, Quintillion has achieved several critical projects for the Alaskan community– and beyond. They were the first to build the North American Arctic subsea and terrestrial fiber optic cable system and launch the highest-latitude satellite ground station in the United States.
Their work aims to achieve more technological advances in Alaska, from bringing people faster internet in their homes to helping industries such as telecommunications and aviation. However, they wouldn’t be able to do this without support from their internal departments and community integrations. Here’s an overview of how Quintillion is integrated with the Alaskan community and how their project management is helping them achieve their goals.
How Is Quintillion Integrated Into the Community?
Quintillion’s success can be attributed to how they leverage their cross-functional team. This includes their key internal departments such as engineering, accounting, and cybersecurity to their external business partners that play a crucial role in supporting each department.
But one of the highlights includes their community liaisons, which are community members in the areas Quintillion serve to help them better hear their customers’ voices. They want to actively bring in community members to hear about their experiences and gain insight into that community’s specific needs. Listening to the needs of rural to urban Alaska areas, they can make a deeper impact through their projects.

Quintillion has high ambitions when it comes to the goals they want to achieve. And although there is no formal internal project management department, they follow an organic project
