Futuri Media, named Tech Company of the Year in both 2017 and 2018 by OHTec, has its innovations powering some of the world’s biggest media and entertainment brands.
Curious why Futuri Media was named one of Northeast Ohio’s Top Workplaces by the Plain Dealer? Hear from some of our team members.
“Futuri Media is a company that’s always reinventing itself. If you haven’t talked to us in a month or so, we’ve probably changed. We’ve evolved even further. The team is an amazing group of people. They come with such a high level of knowledge and experience, and they bring that together with passion for their role and for the company. It’s an amazing place to be.”
– Ali, National Account Manager
“The core principle that I’m most proud of with Futuri is our commitment to support. When you speak to our partners across all the major radio groups, the one recurring theme in their comments about us is the quality of our support. We have 24/7 tech support, and also sales support. We’re true partners and actively help stations generate revenue from our products – no other partner a radio station has does that anywhere near the level Futuri does.”
– Craig, SVP Technology
“Futuri has a big, collaborative team environment, and there are peers that become friends and family instantly. And Futuri really means what they say about how they like to promote from within and recognize the talent they already have. I started here as an analyst, and it was only a few months before someone approached me with another opportunity within the company. They saw talent in me before I had even seen it myself.”
– Jasmine, Operations Manager
“After Futuri acquired the company where I’d worked for ten years, I relocated to Cleveland from Canada to work here. I was asked, ‘What areas are you interested in? What do you think you do the best in? What do you think your weak spots are?’ We really tailored my position here, and it was just an amazing experience. I really enjoyed what I had been doing all along but it got even better as I focused more on areas I was really passionate about and interested in.”
– Adrian, Lead Developer
In 2009, entrepreneur Daniel Anstandig, who sold his first company to Microsoft at age 18, founded Futuri Media (then known as Listener Driven Radio) with the premise “What if radio was invented after the Internet?” It was a simple question, but one that was critical to radio’s future.
Since then, Futuri Media has developed a full suite of SaaS technology solutions for audience engagement and revenue growth, published (or has pending) 11 patents, expanded into the world of television and digital publishing, had its technology used to generate more than $100 million in revenue for its partners, and grown into a global powerhouse serving thousands of clients in 20 countries from right here in Northeast Ohio.
“I came to Futuri because of the innovation Futuri brings to media. To say Futuri is a step ahead is such an understatement – miles ahead! Futuri is always there to solve the problems that program directors and talent face on a day-to-day basis, and work with them one-on-one, watch them grow and share stories. It’s an exciting time for radio, and it’s exciting to be at Futuri.”
– Chris, Partner Success Specialist
“I came to Futuri because we work on a very broad set of technologies, anything from simple APIs to machine learning, doing natural language processing. We use whatever is best for the job. Every day is an interesting challenge.”
– Dan, Director, Technical Operations and Support
