About Foneshow
We're a VC funded, Silicon Valley style company, in Portland Maine. Our founders have spent years working for some of the most successful companies in the valley and in New York. We're pushing the edge of how people think about media, broadcasting, and communication. We're already working with some of the biggest media companies in the world.

We're working hard to build a creative environment where our team can build great products. We've got an open-plan style workplace right in the heart of the Old Port neighborhood of downtown Portland. The office are beautiful, fun (we've got a granite bar and a basketball hoop), nicely decorated and sunny. We keep the kitchen stocked to keep the team fueled up (We're also located over one of the hippest coffee bars in town). Old Port is a vibrant neighborhood filled with great restaurants, galleries and shops. All team members receive a competitive salary, benefits and stock options.

We work hard but we also like to have fun. We have parties. We go skiing. We go sailing. Some of our best ideas don't come while we're in the office. One of the great advantages of being in Maine is the wealth of recreation nearby. Skiing, kayaking, hiking and camping, sailing, hunting and fishing are just a short ride away (there's a reason people come to Maine for vacation). We're also only two hours from Boston by car (and only 40 minutes from New York City by air).
