About Original Software

We have a unique approach to software testing with great products and are highly regarded in the marketplace, by customers and analysts alike.

Original Software is going places.  We already have over 500 customers around the world supported from our Chicago IL and UK offices, but that’s not enough.  We want to expand further and make our unique and impressive software testing solutions the worldwide standard.  What we do, nobody else does or can do, a fact reflected in some of our patents and the plaudits we receive from customers about their successes with our solutions.

There are some long standing players in our marketplace, the likes of HP, IBM and Micro Focus.  But their products for supporting software testing are dated, limited, expensive and frankly just not very good.  It is time for a new way, the Original way, and we want people who can help us achieve this mission objective – to become the new standard in software testing solutions, the one that everybody wants.  We have long been recognised by the industry analysts as visionary, but now it is time to be disruptive.

We are investing heavily in this mission to achieve 40% growth and are expanding our existing well-established team in both our UK and Chicago locations.

This is a dynamic and exciting company to work for where everything any team member does, most of whom have stayed with us for many years, makes a difference. Staff are encouraged to help each other and job role boundaries are often blurred as we work together to get things done in an enjoyable, professional and high quality way.  We applaud and promote innovation internally with regular meetings of those invited to join ‘The Noisies’ group. In this group, with representatives from all parts of the business, everyone is equal and ideas are noisily tossed about.

We have multiple Unique Selling Points which are usually greeted with a “Wow!” from prospective clients when they understand the benefits of our approach and the difference it will make to their challenges.  It is a great place to start a sales cycle from.

When a company chooses to invest or extend their investment with us it is a tribute to every member of staff. Creating and delivering quality solutions that redefine people’s expectation takes every member of every team to fully contribute and our company structure reflects that. In our company when we create success every member of staff shares in that success through our profit share scheme.
