Introducing the AT&T Foundry Innovation Centers From Around the World

Innovation /

AT&T Foundry™ wants to connect with cutting-edge innovators and technologies that will deliver new valuable products and services to our customers. We are looking for technologies that enhance or refine an existing AT&T product or customer experience.

The AT&T Foundries are fast-paced and collaborative environments. With innovation centers in Plano, Palo Alto, Israel and Atlanta, AT&T delivers applications and services to customers more quickly than ever before. 

This year marks the fifth anniversary of the AT&T Foundry! Over the next few weeks we will showcase the awesome work coming from the various Innovation Centers.  

Plano Foundry

It all started here. Opening our doors in 2011, we wanted to develop an inviting, open space that establishes an environment for collaboration and innovation – a fast-paced model enabling us to create and create fast.
