Ifbyphone – Why Work For Us?


About Ifbyphone

Ifbyphone manages, measures and automates voice conversations with your customers and prospects. These conversations cannot be managed using marketing automation or CRM software alone. Without Ifbyphone’s voice-based marketing automation, catching these interactions is like fishing with a hole in the bottom of your net – leads and information fall out. The Ifbyphone suite is a set of software-as-a-service applications including ad tracking, lead distribution, hosted IVR, and voice broadcasting. Companies of all sizes and across all industries use Ifbyphone including direct response, health care, real estate, home services, and lead generation.

    I have been working at Ifbyphone full-time for more than a year


    Ifbyphone is a company that sells a product people want at a profit. The culture is positive and collaborative. The people are smart. Management is VERY accessible.


    Too much fridge space dedicated to La Croix. But seriously, training could use some work. This is a place where you need to seek knowledge and put yourself out there. That's not for everyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Ifbybucks economy could use some stimulus.

    Major Account Executive Interview

    Interview Details

    In person interview was set up prior to coming in. Met with two managers who asked three or four general questions "Tell us about your current sales process" "What do you know about ifbyphone" "Walk us through your resume".

    By far the most unprofessional experience i've had in an interview; let me explain what i mean:
    - No eye contact between myself and the interviewer asking the questions
    - Looking at emails on cell phone during interview
    - Very non enthusiastic
    - Couldn't answer my questions about future goals of the business directly
    - No contact information given by either person for a typical follow up thank you email

    If the interview I was in was a meeting with a client, I would have asked them if I was wasting their time, as i've never seen two people so disinterested in being there. I was so turned off after the interview so much that I didn't WANT to work there. Let alone here if they were going to be offering anything.
