An Insider's view of Sovrn

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Our Reliability Team works incredibly hard, however….personal life comes first. One of the reasons is that we have incredible managers that realize that we are humans. We work hard but when we are off, we are off!

No two days look the same, but I mean that in a good way! At Sovrn, people are given the ability to step outside the confines of their job description and engage cross-departmentally. Sovrn is a great place to work for people who love to learn and challenge themselves.

How does the company support your career growth?

I always wanted to move into management one day. When the opportunity presented itself earlier than I was ready for, the leadership supported me to ensure that we were successful. I can't imagine having grown without them.

Stacey

Manager, Software Engineering

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

Great ideas can come from everybody with the right support and space. To this end, we hold an Innovation Week quarterly for all engineers. We aren't afraid of trying new tech, as long as it delivers customer value. We encourage creativity with a collaborative environment, POCs during planning phases, and aggressively maintaining tech debt.

Jesse

What are some things you learned at the company?

Our onboarding is phenomenal for new employees, helping educate new hires about the entire adtech industry in addition to the specifics of their role, illuminating their place within the larger ecosystem.
