We create and operate iconic urban media displays that advertisers ask for by name in 18 of the top markets in the U.S. Our commitment to innovation has differentiated OBM as a leader in the Out-of-Home industry and driven the development of our subsidiary, IKE Smart City, a company that is blazing the way in smart city initiatives with our interactive digital kiosk, IKE.

We value our associates and have created an environment of inclusion, respect, and fun. We hire and reward top-notch talent who contribute to our unique culture and shared vision.

OBM and IKE Smart City continue to experience momentous growth, almost tripling in size over the past two years, and we start and end each day excited about the work we do together and the new challenges ahead.

Eat & Drink:

We love to eat and we make sure hungry associates are fed with daily catered lunches from places like Local Cantina, Aab, and Acre to Mikey's Late Night Slice and Northstar. In addition, our kitchen is stocked with a variey of drinks, sweet and salty snacks, fruit, and breakfast and lunch options.


Spending time together is a priority and we regularly celebrate as a team throughout the year. Company outings range from our holiday party and summer event to our July 4th rooftop barbeque and Town Hall meetings. There's always cake to recognize birthdays and the first Friday of every month is an excuse to wrap it up a little early to cheers to the weekend.

Office Pride:

OBM Headquarters can't be missed as you navigate Columbus towards Franklinton. The spectacular wallscapes on our building facade are some of the most recognizable in the city and are coveted by advertisers like Apple and Rouge. The American Institue of Architects honored OBM with an award for Excellence in Architectural design for our office - a place that was developed to facilitate collaboration, inspire creativity, and instill a sense of pride in all who work here. 

We’re fun. We’re driven. We’re passionate about developing impactful and innovative outdoor media that adds to the character of urban downtown areas and provides value to our advertising partners.

    I have been working at Orange Barrel Media full-time (Less than a year)


    OBM is an incredible place to work! The company is growing rapidly, and it is so exciting to be part of that growth. OBM has a leadership team that is approachable, determined for success and willing to hear any and all input. The environment is extremely collaborative so even though I am in the marketing department, I work with every other department. I am happy to be part of a company that cares about its people as much as it cares for its success. And in return, its people are willing to do anything for one another. The room for growth is another very exciting factor in why this company is so great. Management truly wants to see you succeed and will do what it takes to get you to your goals. I feel very lucky to be surrounded by this inspiring group of people every day.


    The work flow is fast-paced so you must be prepared to have a great work ethic.
