If you’re sick of the stairs, take the slide.

Yes, seriously. At AWeber‘s new Bucks County office, you can take the scenic route downstairs. We’re talking sailing down one of two slides at the email marketing company’s headquarters, next to its in-office waterfall and 20-ft. green bio-wall. And to think, AWeber was founded by Tom Kulzer in a two-bedroom apartment in York, Pa.

AWeber moved to its Chalfont, Pa. office last December from its former office in the Hungtingdon Valley to accomodate growth, and while it’s at 87 employees, it now has capacity for 350, said spokeswoman Liz Cies. The company was recently named one of the best places to work in the region, according to a survey.

Check the office out for yourself at AWeber’s April 30 open house. Scroll to the bottom for a behind the scenes video with Philadelphia muralist David Guinn, who painted a two-story mural (pictured below) for the company.
