Sociomantic Jakarta sits on the 45th floor of the Menara BCA in the fancy Thamrin district, just a few blocks away from Monumen Selamat Datang, the city’s welcome monument which serves as the centerpiece to the famous Bundaran HI roundabout. While getting to the office is definitely not a walk in the park —afterall, this is a city of 12 million motor vehicles — we love Jakarta for what it is: challenging, dynamic, and always full of surprises, a place where cultural diversity, the locals’ unbreakable optimism, and the time concept of jam karet (rubber time) blend into a charming chaos.
Jakarta is a city of booming economy and rapid development, with an increasingly affluent middle class as well as one of the world’s busiest social media populations and highest smartphone penetrations. We’re thrilled to be here to help local brands forge into the digital era with personalized ads that are tailor-made for each and every consumer in the Indonesian market.
By the numbers:
- 2014 – The year the Jakarta office was founded
- 12 million – The number of motor vehicles in town
- 1 – The number of car-free days we enjoy weekly
What's Hot in Jakarta
Coffee for champions – Kopi Luwak, the world’s most expensive coffee, is produced in Indonesia. Go to La Maison Kopi Luwak at Plaza Indonesia to taste this unique beverage in a modern and cozy environment!
Shop deluxe – Our office is located in the business district, close to a shopping center packed with brands like Chanel, Celine, Rolex, Dior – just to name a few. If couture shopping is not your thing, Indonesia's very first Sephora store can be exciting enough to pay a visit to the mall.
Cars keep out – Despite the massive traffic that Jakarta is notorious for, we do get our car-free days: every Sunday, the main avenue by Monumen Selamat Datang is closed from traffic, so we can all go outside to enjoy some car-less moments!
