Veteran engineering leader will help Feed.fm grow its category-defining music streaming platform for digital businesses
SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 28, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Feed.fm, the leading global music streaming platform for digital businesses, announced that it has expanded its leadership team, welcoming Ryan Morris as Director of Engineering. Morris brings more than a decade of engineering leadership experience to Feed.fm, and its parent company Feed Media Group, and will lead the expansion and evolution of Feed.fm's platform as the company meets the growing need for popular music in modern digital experiences.
Before joining Feed.fm, Morris spent nearly six years at Slack, including the last year-and-a-half as director of software engineering. At Slack, Morris was hired to lead the team developing Slack Connect and Administrative Tooling, and eventually started a new group of product development engineers focused on building tools and features that would help teams that were new to Slack be more successful as they started using the platform. Morris led this group through periods of enormous growth, eventually managing multiple engineering teams which included embedded product and design people.
Prior to Slack, Morris was an engineering manager at Pandora, and brings more than two decades of experience as an engineer and manager throughout his career at Slack, Pandora, and other startups and mid-sized tech companies.
"We are beyond thrilled to have Ryan join Feed.fm and help us further our mission to unlock the power of music for everyone," said Jeff Yasuda, CEO, Feed Media Group. "Ryan's part of a new breed of technologist in the B2B music space who has a unique mix of high growth tech platform leadership experience alongside a deep understanding of the music industry. His addition will strengthen Feed.fm's position to become the leader in a new category of turnkey music solutions for the world's top brands."
"What's so interesting about music distribution is that the consumer space and the business-to-business space are two completely different worlds," Morris said. "There has been tremendous progress on the problems that needed to be solved in the consumer space, but less progress has been made against finding a scalable, effective system to provide music to businesses, especially in the digital space. Feed.fm's ability to provide a music experience that's tailored to a business's needs in the same way that a streaming music service can tailor it to a specific user's need puts it in an incredible position to lead the business-to-business market."
