Product Manager - Ting Mobile

Ting has been on a wild, wonderful ride since launching a US mobile phone service (out of an old warehouse in Liberty Village) in early 2012.

Just six months after launch, GigaOM included us, along with Apple, Samsung, Fitbit and Waze, in “The Mobile 15” as one of fifteen companies “…that are changing or could potentially change the mobile landscape.” We have been lauded in the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, USA Today, The Washington Post and just about every publication, website or blog covering the US mobile landscape. We have crushed Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and every other provider in the annual Consumer Reports survey of US cell phone services.

In just over six years, we have shaken up the US mobile industry, offering fair pricing, usable interfaces, and shockingly non-phone-company-like customer support. We are satisfying customers and saving them money and those customers are clearly telling their friends. Coming into 2018, we have over 250,000 subscribers and $75 million in annual revenue.
