Sandvine – Why Work For Us?

A Modern Day Tale of Innovation

The Sandvine story begins in June 2001 in Waterloo, Ontario; a thriving community and technology hub an hour West of Toronto.  Named in 2007 as the World’s Top Intelligent Community for prosperity rooted in broadband and information technology, Waterloo overcame a declining economy and fostered a culture of learning, spawning a climate of growth in the region which now boasts a tech cluster of nearly 1,000 companies.

This success was earned due—in no small part—to the University of Waterloo.  Built on a foundation of science, engineering and math, a globally recognized cooperative education program, and a progressive intellectual property policy, the University of Waterloo has paved the way for many successful technology start-ups in the region.  Waterloo is also home to two other leading schools:  Wilfrid Laurier University and Conestoga College.

Emboldened by Cisco’s historic acquisition of start-up PixStream in December of 2000, the Sandvine founding team was afforded a unique opportunity and the timing was right.  Sandvine opened its doors on June 11, 2001, and despite grim statistics of start-up failures at the time, adapted to market needs, thanks to a series of industry firsts.

It is Sandvine's pioneering spirit that drives a continued focus on innovation.  For the team of nearly 500 strong—spanning the globe and representing diverse cultures and interests—and a list of customers our competitors surely envy, it continues to be one exhilarating ride.
