Sovos unveils plans to expand its Atlanta office
By Edlyn Cardoza
Global tax software provider Sovos recently announced that it is moving its office from the outskirts of Atlanta to the heart of the city to attract diverse and rich talent that will fill new roles in sales, technology and finance positions as the company expands its local team by 10 to 20% in the next year.
Spanning 25,000 square feet, the new office at Star Metals is more than 70% larger than its predecessor and will be designed to align with Sovos’ future of work philosophy, “In-Person for a Purpose,” enabling flexibility based on employees’ preferences around hybrid work. In addition to collaboration software and spaces, the new office will have an onsite fitness centre, restaurants, and a roof terrace that offers 360-degree views of the city skyline. Sovos expects the office to be ready for occupancy by early 2023.
With a culture built on collaboration and inclusivity, Sovos is headquarter-agnostic and has a distributed executive team and more than 2,400 employees across 14 countries. The larger office space in Atlanta will accommodate a growing local team and serve as a central gathering place when needed for teams working across Latin America, Europe, and the U.S.
“Sovos is at the forefront of the future of work, and we’re committed to enabling employees to connect digitally as the workplace shifts from in-person to remote to hybrid,” said Colleen Schagel, chief talent officer, Sovos. “Atlanta is home to the busiest airport in the world and top-ranked universities, making it a great market for accessibility, tech talent and work-life balance.”
Sovos’ Atlanta presence dated to 2016 when it acquired local e-invoicing software provider Invoiceware International, which expanded Sovos’ capabilities into Latin America. Sovos supports tens of thousands of customers operating in more than 70 countries.
“We’re pleased that the company continues to invest in the Atlanta region as we work together as a business community to grow the economy for the betterment of our workforce,” said Martin Lamar, senior vice president of economic development at Invest Atlanta.
