We are a small high performance and well knit team who are changing how B2B software is purchased.

How are we different?


Why Work With Comparesoft?

Competitive Salary
Progression & Training
Remote Working
Winning Team

As well as building and growing the UK’s first B2B software marketplace, working at Comparesoft also has numerous perks:

  1. We pay a good salary. Salary is super important and we understand that. Compared to other companies in our sector, we often pay above-average salaries combined with equity. Meaning most people who join us get their asking salaries and every team member owns a share in Comparesoft.
  2. We conduct salary and growth contribution reviews every quarter for every team member.
  3. Get to drive growth of the UK’s first search and comparison engine for B2B software. Just to let you know, HMRC has validated that we have/are building something new and hence provide us with Research and Development Tax Credit worth thousands of pounds every year.
  4. Be a part of a small yet hyper-efficient team. We are a team of 5, yet we are profitable and grew by 402% in 2021. We are currently growing at about 20% every month.
  5. Our culture is:
    • We are transparent about our situation and performance
    • We are honest with each other, our customers, and our investors
    • We try our best to deal with a tough situation with empathy
    • We are completely committed to delighting our customers
  6. We are a fully remote yet well connected and engaged team based in the UK. That means:
    • We use Slack to speak with each other twice every day; 5 minutes in the morning and 5 minutes at the end of the day. We believe staying connected and speaking with team members allows us to share how our day went and talk about what we are working on. We also feel that speaking with each other drives empathy and compassion, which is good for our emotional and mental well-being.
    • On the last Friday of every month, we have a remote event. It can be anything from an online pub quiz and Comparesoft Jeopardy to any other event that we all enjoy. Each pre-nominated person from the team decides what we are doing. Pizzas are delivered to your house and in time for the fun to start.
  7. We are building the most employee-friendly and customer-centric organisation in the UK. It’s a journey, so every team member who joins us will contribute to making it an even more employee-friendly and customer-centric workplace.
  8. We focus on continuous training. Markets and technology are constantly evolving, so we believe the best way to stay ahead of the curve is to constantly keep learning. Hence every team member at Comparesoft gets access to a Coursera yearly subscription to keep learning new skills. We also budget for training and skill upgrades, so you can always take a relevant external course to further your skills.
  9. We don’t hesitate to do the right thing. We have apologised to each other and our customers when we are wrong. We like acknowledging our mistakes and learning from them. For the record, all of us routinely make mistakes, but we almost always learn from them.
  10. We are here to win by addressing the requirements of software buyers and software vendors. We want to be the best at what we do, not the second or the third-best.
