As a rapidly growing company in Chicago’s thriving tech community, Ifbyphone delivers the latest voice-based marketing automation technology to the market by fostering a creative and innovative work environment.
“Ifbyphone consistently offers individual employees recognition and rewards for their outstanding achievements and offers many opportunities for team-building and collaboration, both inside and outside the office,” said Irv Shapiro, CEO of Ifbyphone. “We believe this recognition by the NABR serves as confirmation that Ifbyphone is an ideal place for employees with high expectations for their careers, lives, and work environment.”

Its LEED certified office in the Chicago loop includes team collaboration spaces, a break room complete with ping pong, golf, pinball and LCD screens, intended to promote teamwork and focus for all employees.
