Overall a pretty good co-op term, catered lunch every day is great. There were some growing pains during the time I worked there so the organization of teams and the prioritization of projects were still being figured out.

It is my third coop term. Great work-life balance. Mentorship needs to be improved. Projects are quite challenging. You need to take more initiative to really make an impact.

There are definitely some organizational pains that come with a company trying to grow. They were aggressively hiring full-time employees when I worked there for both the San Francisco and Waterloo offices, as there was an extra signing bonus for new employees going on. However, at least 5 full-time employees left the company or were fired in the 4 months I was there, so take that how you will. Most of their old monolithic application is still written in PHP, with most of the newer services written in Ruby on Rails and Golang. Mobile applications are written in Java (Android) and Objective C (iOS), although they’re planning on rewriting in Swift at some point. Some custom firmware and other things are written in C, although for the most… Show More

You'll get a lot of responsibility and make your own features, but the culture is a bit dull. Not very diverse and not really any company events.

Was given a lot of responsibility and room to grow. However, the company culture seems to be very superficial. The company undeniably has very good perks for Waterloo, free lunch, breakfast, monthly events, etc... But that does not make up for some of the more serious issues with TextNow. The company seems to have a large problem with work life balance, as a co-op this probably won't affect you too much, however be prepared to see some very stressed, overworked full time employees. There's also a lot of politics for a company of this size (~100 people) and the management team seems to push for things like unlimited vacation as a means to make up for the lack of work life balance. But as most people know in practice that does not lead to… Show More

A quickly changing company going through a lot of growth. When I was interning, teams were still being figured out, but working at such a company will provide a neat learning experience. Would recommend at least one internship in this kind of environment. People at TextNow were super friendly, and the work that they were doing was interesting and is becoming more interesting term after term as they face new challenges.

Highly dependent on the team. My team was very good and had an interesting project that I worked on. I learned a lot and there are a lot of bright people working there. Gave a one time flight stipend ($750 if you're from Waterloo).

Really team dependent. I was in a newly formed team so every person on my team had a lot of responsibilities. We were in charge of a lot of things so we learned a lot too. Our team had a start-up culture while being backed by a large corporation like IBM.

Interned during the summer of 2017. I was on the Google Help/Feedback mobile team (iOS) and had two semi-independent projects throughout my term, both of them fully launched! I also got to do a large amount of backend development despite being hired as an iOS developer. The office culture was very laid back, and my host/team was very helpful during the entire internship. Not included in the salary is a $9000 relocation bonus at the start of the internship.

A pretty fast-paced co-op, but that was very enjoyable for me. Was given a lot of freedom as to what I wanted to work on and how I managed my time. Also I was able to switch to more of a back end role in the latter half of the co-op which was great! Would definitely recommend TextNow; one of the better places to work for in the KW area.
