Excellent craftmanship since 1996

This year we turn Softhouse 25 years. Together with our fantastic customers, we have contributed to digital innovations around our society since 1996. We were involved in introducing agile methodology in the Nordic region and have since the start built a company with over 300 employees in 8 different offices.

We invest in future companies where we can work close to the market and new technology. We continuously train experts and make sure to share what we know best. We have had the privilege of building digital solutions that change the society we live in. We are proud of that and that is exactly why we want to pay extra attention to our 25 years.
