Another Sopro birthday: Lucky number seven!

blogpost image

A lot of big things happened in 2015.

NASA discovered water on Mars. Sepp Blatter resigned from FIFA, with scandal raging all around him. Volkswagen cheated in their emissions exams.

A duck wearing a bow-tie walked into a pub, drank a pint, fought a dog, and lost.

And while all this was going on, in a small office in a quiet corner of Brighton, Ryan Welmans and Rob Harlow founded Sopro.

In those early days, Sopro was a small band of brothers. At first, they worked in spare rooms and garages, forging their own origin story.

When an office was eventually opened, they worked with laptops balanced on laps and sat cross-legged on the floor for two weeks while they waited for the desks to arrive.

And now, Sopro has grown from those few legends in a tiny office, to a global army of experts spread across the world, each one focused on improving every aspect of B2B email outreach.

A key part of the reason we became the world’s greatest email prospecting service is our obsession with numbers. 

And so to mark our seventh birthday, we’ve dug up a few to show just how far we’ve come. 

Here’s Sopro at Seven in numbers…

At the end of 2015, Sopro had one employee all sharing one small office space. 💻

Halfway through 2022, we have 273 employees across six different locations – Brighton, Skopje, London, UAE, Serbia and Miami. 🌍

And those 273 employees seem to like being here – our Glassdoor score is 4.9, and 96% of employees say they would recommend Sopro to a friend.

Our Officevibe score is 8.3, the staff retention rate is an amazing 86%. 💕

The number of snacks, drinks, pastries, juices, ping pong matches, and parties cannot be counted. 🥂
