TextNow is making mobile phone service ultra-affordable through its unique cloud based technology. Through TextNow Wireless and the free TextNow app, the company provides millions of users a better alternative to traditional wireless service.

The TextNow space has grown over the last two years — yet remains close to our roots. Based in the University of Waterloo Technology Park, steps of from UW’s Accelerator Centre Incubator, where we graduated from, the space embodies a culture of openness. As we strive to disrupt the telecom industry we make it our mission to keep the space conducive to collaboration, creativity and passion for our craft. Floor to ceiling windows, grand communal spaces, a fitness centre on-site to combat our daily catering and some great accessories creates a space meant to solve the most challenging problems.

Unlike many fragmented designs, the space breathes a sense of community and connectivity. Like with our product, we aim to create the best. In the heart of innovation, next door to one of the most forward academic institutions on the planet we’ve created a space with unlimited potential.

Engineering Labs

The open environment is what cultivates the culture. Ideas and energy flow freely throughout the space, leaving meeting rooms open for those absolute moments when a closed door is required.

Collaborative Suites

Collaborative space throughout the office provides an environment for teams to break out and step away from their routine while providing the openness needed to push those boundaries of innovation.

Bon Appetit

The kitchen is where they come together to break bread. They unwind, laugh, feast, and once in a while raise a glass of the finest local craft brew the region has to offer.

Recreation

All work and no play, is not the TextNow way. From their fitness overlooking UW's campus to the epic foosball pitch, activity is a part of who we are. And of course, gaming for the enthusiast is omnipresent from the latest to the classics.
