Who We Are
FreshWorks Studio is a Victoria, BC-based startup that specializes in delivering mobile and web applications. We work with both public and private sector organizations on a range of project sizes - from apps for BC HighWays & the City of Victoria, to our latest commercial contracts with leading BC companies Used.ca & Harbour Air.

We are building a community that creates smart and elegant mobile applications, seamless product strategies, responsive web applications, and story-driven user experiences for bold entrepreneurs. We don’t ask for years of experience, because it’s not about how long you’ve been practicing a skill, it’s how well you do it.
