Joe "Mazel Tov" Raio
Owner / Operator / Senior Software Developer
If this was channel 7 news – Joe would be Ron Burgundy. The commander of the forces of 561Media, Joe is an extremely talented programmer, designer and manager. Joe is an experienced computer engineer with an extensive background in networking, web development, internet marketing and business development.
A native of South Florida, Joe has been a successful musician for over 15 years sharing the stage with such bands as Sevendust, Filter & Nonpoint. He enjoys, with his band, the rewards of distributing their music through the Warner Brothers, iTunes, and writing music for the Ultimate Fighting Championship.
With a penchant for overachievement and boundless ambition, Joe keeps 561Media productive. Joe's is paradoxical personality – a perfect amalgamation of programming logic and business charisma. In fact our employee handbook expounds this with a simple declarative "when in doubt – ask Joe!"
A chronic winner, the only time Joe suffers humiliation is when the office arbitrarily deface his office in a sporadic, yet frequent office prank that is now enjoyable to all through youtube! Joe, perhaps unbeknownst to himself, gives everyone at 561Media a measure of relief whenever he is involved in any given project.
