Do you want to help create better, happier workplaces? Would you like to join us on our journey to world pod domination?
Framery created the soundproof pod industry as a way to address the need for quiet space in all types of work environments and we continue to lead the way with best-in-class products and services. Our headquarters in Finland means authentic Scandinavian design, and a long list of American partners and clients means momentum here in North America to build on. Framery leads the way in design, performance, testing & code compliance and we’re continuing our success story with the next generation of phone booths… beginning with Framery One, the world’s first “connected” acoustic pod.
We are strengthening our presence in Illinois and surrounding states and are looking for a phenomenal Area Sales Manager to lead the charge in the local markets. Surrounding states will be included after the initial ramp-up, based on our existing team’s and the candidate’s experience in the region.
