|Director of Product Marketing|
I never liked talking on the phone much. I’m not sure why, but as a kid I never felt comfortable calling people. I eventually got over that, but I’m certainly glad that running my business doesn’t require a ton of phone time – I can do a lot of stuff online. However, if I was running a more phone intensive business, I’d definitely consider using Ifbyphone, a “hosted voice application and platform” run by a Skokie, IL (near Chicago) based company with the same name. Most phone systems require a huge hardware investment, but Ifbyphone’s can do all of the following through their software solution: Hosted IVR, Voice Broadcasting, Toll-Free Numbers, Local Phone Numbers, Call Routing, Virtual Receptionist, Store Locator, Google® Integration, Call Tracking, Dynamic Numbers, Find, Me Call Forwarding, Lead Distributor, Click-to-Call, and Conference Calling. I don’t know what all of those things are, but they sure sound important. Anyway, Ifbyphone focuses on offering their platform to small and medium sized business, and they have $4.6 million in venture capital funding to do it.
I still don’t fully understand everything that Ifbyphone does, but their demo videos do a pretty good job of describing exactly what some of their offerings do. (And I really don’t like the Voice Broadcasting one. I wouldn’t be happy to get one of those messages.) After looking more closely at what Ifbyphone is about, I can see how the product can add a ton of value to small and medium businesses. It’s pretty cool to see phones getting intertwined with the web, and Ifbyphone is leading that transition. If this is something that excites you, then a job with Ifbyphone is probably worth considering. Their blog has a post about three positions that they’re hiring for. Two are explicitly listed as entry level – Customer Success Specialist and Account Manager For Channel Sales Position. Both jobs offer a great opportunity to get in early at a growing startup, so check out the full descriptions and apply by sending a cover letter and resume to email@example.com.
