Good things come in fours: the seasons, The Beatles, Joe Montana’s Super Bowl rings, the list goes on. But what tops them all for Sojern is that for the fourth consecutive year we landed a ranking on Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500 list. We sit alongside tech’s biggest and best companies in this recognition.
Because November is a great month to look back and take stock of what we achieved so far in the year. Here’s a quick overview:
First, let’s talk numbers.
This year we surpassed the $100 million annual revenue run rate threshold, which means business has been great. Because of our financial success, we won’t be looking to raise another round of funding in the foreseeable future.
Second, the growth in our team was phenomenal.
In the last year, we’ve outgrown our previous offices. We’re enjoying new spaces in Omaha, New York, London, Dubai, and Singapore.
Third, we were recognized as a great place to work.
The San Francisco Business Times announced our place on the list of the 2016 Best Places to Work in the Bay Area. With unlimited vacation and time dedicated to volunteering, Sojernistas love working here.
We also made several key hires.
These include senior industry leadership in Mat Harris, Vice President of Product Enterprise Solutions and Jackie Lamping, Vice President of Marketing. As of today, Sojern is 235 employees strong. And, with plans to open offices in Sydney and Dublin, the number of Sojernistas worldwide will skyrocket next year.
Finally, we became the first travel-specific company to be named a Google DoubleClick Certified Marketing Partner.
We’re now able to now integrate our 350 million traveler profiles with DoubleClick’s ad tech stack. This includes exclusive access to YouTube inventory, and allows us to provide more innovative solutions to our customers than ever before.
But we couldn’t do it without our dedicated team of travel tech superstars. Congratulations and thank you to our Sojernistas across the globe. They work tirelessly to make this company what it is today.
