Sovrn Jobs

Ready for a New Adventure? Come Work at Sovrn!

People Team // February 3, 2022

Right now is a great time to be looking for a new job. The harder task may be finding a place you really want to work. The kind of place where you can grow professionally, refine the skills you already have, and try new things. A place where things move fast, but you won’t get lost in the shuffle. Where you can make a real impact, be your authentic self, and work with other awesome humans.

A place like Sovrn.

We’re currently hiring for a variety of roles across a number of teams. If you’re looking for a position in engineering, sales, marketing, finance, or people, check out our current job listings — and read on to find out more about why you should come work with us.

What does Sovrn do?

Sovrn is all about protecting the open web, leveling the playing field, and helping content creators stay independent in the competitive internet landscape. 

As a leader in online publisher technology, Sovrn offers a suite of publishing solutions that help content creators innovate and drive more value from their content and visitors through advertising, affiliate, and audience tools. We’re honored to partner with over 40,000 websites, ultimately reaching over 300 million active consumers.

Our company is headquartered in Boulder, CO, but our business is global. We also operate offices in New York, San Diego, and London.

What if I don’t know anything about online publishing?

We think publisher technology is a pretty exciting space to be right now. The industry is growing, digital media and ad tech are evolving quickly, and Sovrn is squarely in the middle of the action.

That said, we don’t expect every candidate to come in with expert credentials. Experience comes in different forms and we recognize that many skills are transferable. 
More important than your resume is your ability to thrive in a fluid and collaborative environment — and your passion for learning. We think it’s important for every employee to learn new things on the job, and we’ve created a supportive, nurturing culture that encourages continuous learning. In fact, it’s one of Sovrn’s core values.

What makes Sovrn such a great place to work?

Sovrn sits in that “just right” spot between too-small startup companies and too-big enterprise organizations. We’re small enough to stay agile, and we’ve maintained that scrappy, can-do startup mindset. But we’ve been around long enough to develop an amazing culture and we’re large enough to put significant resources behind the things we think are important — like new hire onboarding, training programs, and employee life.

Not to mention our incredible benefits package! Of course we offer everything you’d expect in terms of insurance, retirement savings, and paid leave, including:

  • Medical, dental, and vision coverage
  • Life and disability insurance
  • 401(k) with 50% employer matching
  • Paid holidays
  • Flex PTO with no set limit on days off
  • Paid parental and medical leave programs
  • Volunteer time off

But we’ve also put together a unique set of perks to keep our employees healthy and happy — things like a free subscription to the Calm app, commuter benefits, and an employee recognition program. Every office has its own personality and special touches to make workdays more enjoyable, from snacks and beverages to social events. Depending on where you’re located, you might even have an in-house barista!

Don’t take our word for it… 

We could go on all day about what makes Sovrn great, but we thought you might want to hear directly from real-life Sovrn employees. So we asked some of our newest team members — folks who were in your job search shoes not long ago — to give us their thoughts on working at Sovrn.

It turns out, one thing that truly sets Sovrn apart is our people. The themes of “people” and “culture” came up time and again. 

“I was in the interview process with two other companies, but I didn’t feel the same kind of warmth and engagement that I felt from everyone I spoke to at Sovrn. As soon as I was offered the job, I immediately dropped out of the running for the other two positions without hesitation. 
– Tori Mitchell, Customer Support Specialist

“My favorite thing about working at Sovrn is the people, first and foremost. I’ve had a really warm welcome from the beginning. Everyone I’ve met along the way has been generous with their time, open to new ideas, and very focused on helping me learn and feel involved.”
– Natalie Butler, Director of Product Marketing (UK)

“I was really hoping the cross-section of folks that I interviewed with was truly representative of the company and the culture, and I am THRILLED to say that this is the case. My experience has been nothing but a pleasure so far. Everyone has been more than generous with their time in helping me get up to speed.”
– Doug Pojar, Sr. Technical Recruiter

We also heard a lot about the opportunities that are available to employees at Sovrn: 

“I am most excited to be able to grow into a long term career. With the “Farms to Majors” program I will be able to see different parts of Sovrn and never feel stuck in one position.”
– Zachariah Jeter, Network Quality Specialist

“Our career development programming is really exciting to me. As we scale as an organization, we have a real opportunity to co-create and iterate a people-first approach.”
– Brian Curr, Sr. People Business Partner

“I am excited about my continued growth not only as a data engineer, but also in my knowledge about the business side.”
– Cameron Gridley, Software Engineer, Data Delivery

The word is out

We know we’ve got a good thing going, but other people are taking notice as well. Sovrn was recently recognized as one of Built In Colorado’s “2022 Best Places to Work” with rankings in several categories.
