Our Story

TigerText was conceived in 2010 in Los Angeles, with one simple goal in mind: empowering organizations and individuals to securely communicate with their mobile phones.

In a world where every email, every SMS and every data bit we ever created lives on forever in some computer server, owned by some unknown company, in some unknown location, we believe impermanence should be an inalienable right. It’s why we created TigerText to allow individuals and organizations to take back control of their communications. TigerText is dedicated to improving the lives of our customers by plugging into critical communication paths to increase productivity and make 2-way communication as efficient as possible.

Today some of the largest organizations rely on TigerText to send millions of messages every day. And to sleep well at night knowing their messages are safe.

TigerText Culture

We’re a fun, hungry, innovative group of people who are passionate about transforming the way individuals and organizations communicate.

Our headquarters is in Santa Monica, CA the center of Silicon Beach and a hub for startup creativity. We frequently can be found out on our office balcony having impromptu meetings or enjoying Nana’s tacos while soaking up 363 days of sun. We are always looking for like-minded individuals who enjoy working hard, building new roads and taking aim at the protectors of the status quo. And if we are lucky, changing the way the world communicates.

If you feel the same pangs we all share to be a part of something special, inquire within. We need more like us.
