When I Work




As founder Chad Halvorson stepped into a new role, Minneapolis-based When I Work brought on Martin Hartshorne as its new CEO in July. Hartshorne brings experience helping drive the growth of Florida-based Ultimate Software. During his time there, sales grew from $350 million to $1.3 billion, and the company was sold to a private equity group for $11 billion. When I Work, which offers scheduling software for hourly workers, isn’t quite that big—yet. “It has so much growth ahead of it,” says Hartshorne, who states an initial goal of tripling revenue over five years. Despite the pandemic, Hartshorne says, “we’re sitting at an all-time high in revenue.”
