Linksoft

After leading Monster.com’s international product development and software engineering efforts, Jens Kosman founded Linksoft in 2012 to bring high-quality, cost-effective software development services to local businesses.

Sonja Kosman ’08BUS, sister to Jens, sourced Linksoft’s first client engagement while working full-time in her post-MBA internet advertising career in New York City. In 2013, Linksoft was restructured, bringing in 2 strategic partners, with Sonja leading the firm’s business development and marketing activities.

Linksoft has recently gone live with a major client engagement:  a complete website redesign for an education consulting company founded by 2 Wharton MBAs: admitadvantage.com.  Other projects include a mobile app for a career consulting company and a social networking platform and application management platform for another client.

Linksoft is spreading the word about its first client successes with a new website and case studies.  They partner with businesses to execute on their technology vision, in all stages of their life cycle.  They build companies’ first web and mobile presences, help them create new revenue-generating products and applications, and build custom applications that help firms run more efficiently.  Linksoft has been profitable and just won a contract to build a website for a ride-sharing app founded by a Columbia MBA alum.

Jens Kosman, Founder/CEO, has extensive Fortune 500 experience defining product strategy and managing software development teams to build online and mobile applications.   He specializes in helping companies identify their big picture strategy and define their best possible technology plan to support their growth.

Sonja Kosman, Co-Founder and VP Marketing & Business Development, has extensive background in finance, sales, product development and marketing.  She is responsible for Linksoft’s business development and marketing strategy, including planning and executing on its sales goals.

He works closely with Linksoft clients to define their unique brand essences and to ensure the creation of standout digital experiences.
