Press Release: Bozeman-Funded Startup OppSource Follows Through on Local Hiring
Press Releases • July 18, 2017
Saint Paul, Minn. and Bozeman, Mont., July 18, 2017
OppSource, a leading SaaS-based software provider, today announced it has followed through on its previously stated commitment to “hire local” by adding six new people to its Bozeman office. In addition, the company plans to add at least six more new hires in 2018, bringing 12-15 new jobs to the Bozeman community in just 18 months.
“Bozeman is home to our sales and customer success center, which is responsible for finding, developing and maintaining customers throughout the United States,” says OppSource Co-Founder and Chief Revenue Officer Dan Metzger, who is based in Bozeman and oversees the day-to-day operations of the customer success center. “By pairing unprecedented personalized engagement with unparalleled levels of service, our Bozeman team is driving our success, as well the success of the customers we serve.”
General Partner of Bozeman-based Next Frontier Capital Will Price agrees. “As a venture capital fund backed by investors from the world’s top technology and venture capital firms, we funded the expansion of the Bozeman office, in part, because every OppSource employee is laser-focused on one goal—getting customers and keeping them for life.”
The development of the Bozeman epicenter was driven by a desire to separate OppSource’s sales function from its Saint Paul-based product development function. By doing so, sales teams focus on selling the right thing to the right customer at the right time, without the distractions that come with software development. In addition, OppSource has the added benefit of access to great resources without having to compete with the heavy concentration of Fortune 500 companies headquartered in the Minneapolis/Saint Paul area.
“That creates a win-win,” added Price. “It also creates the perfect fit for our venture capital fund, which seeks opportunities primarily in industries dominated by high intellectual property values and the chance to build Montana technology companies of impact, utility and value.”
Saint Paul, Minn.-based OppSource is leading the market in providing a fully integrated sales development software platform that automates the orchestration, delivery, and tracking of multiple channels of sales outreach. Used by industry-leading B2B companies that have or are investing in dedicated sales prospecting teams, OppSource’s sales development software provides specialized functionality to help sales teams be up to three times more effective at prospecting, developing and delivering sales-ready opportunities.
