In 2007, Gordon Whitten founded Sojern with the idea of placing ads on print-at-home boarding passes. Fast forward 11 years later to what Sojern is today, an Omaha original that has surpassed $100 million in annual revenue – expanding its company dramatically to 13 locations world wide.
Sojern is growing, and the company continues to hire both in Omaha and around the globe. Earlier this month, Sojern announced a brand new office space located at 18135 Burke Street in Omaha to support the rapid growth of the company. Of Sojern’s 500 employees around the world, 190 are based in Omaha, with room to add 325 hires in the new office. Sojern illustrates the power of entrepreneurial success as an economic and job growth engine – providing numerous jobs in a cost and tax effective manner.
“Omaha was the birthplace for our business 11 years ago, and we’re very proud of our roots here,” Brent Brummer, Vice President of Business Strategy at Sojern, said in a company statement. “We continue to invest in recruiting talent from Omaha because we’ve had great success. The city continues to produce seasoned, hard-working professionals, with top-notch transferrable skills, as well as college grads ready to start their careers in tech.”
The new space, designed by local Omaha architecture firm Alley Poyner Macchietto, boasts 53 conference rooms, 190 workstations, a 4,000-square-foot break room, and room to grow. Employees have access to ping pong tables, shuffleboard, and three nursing/lactation rooms.
