About Us

Highsoft is located in Vik i Sogn, Norway, a beautiful small town, surrounded by the splendor of mountains and fjords.

Spending time enjoying outdoor activities in our spectacular natural environment has been an inspirational catalyst for many of our ideas and products. To find out more information about our hometown, Vik, please check out Torstein’s personal website.

While the bulk of our growing team is located in Norway, the international nature of our business has lead us to recruit talent and forge partnerships across every continent.

Our best selling product, Highcharts, started out as Torstein’s humble quest for a simple charting tool for updating his homepage with snow depth measurements from Vikjafjellet, the local mountain where his family keeps a cabin.

Frustrated with the common flash plug-ins, and other proprietary solutions at the time, he decided to build a standards-based solution of his own, and share it with the world. It turns out he was doing more than scratching his own itch.

Since its launch in 2009, Highcharts has remained the premier and fastest growing charting-tool in a competitive market.

Mission

Since the inception of our company, our mission has been simple: Make it easy for everyone to visualize data on the web. Over the years, web technology (HTML & JavaScript) has become incorporated into everything from smart watches and thermostats, to mission-critical financial trading applications. Our customer base, and how they use our technology, has therefore also evolved. We meet these challenges with a relentless focus on delivering the highest quality products and support.

We also strive to make it easier to consume data. Our charts not only intelligently adapts to any device and screen size, but have become the gold-standard for making charts accessible to visually impaired users. Today, consumers who depend on screen readers to navigate, and hear, the data embedded within a chart, can do so easily with our technology.

Values

Quality, openness and respect. This is the mantra we live by every day, and it encompasses everything we do. Here is what it means to us:

Quality in our product, our workplace, and our relations to coworkers, customers and partners.

Openness and transparency in our dialogue with internal and external stakeholders, open source code for our products, and an open mind as to what our customers may come to expect of us next or who our next hire may be.

Respect for our customers and partners and the trust they place in us. Respect for coworkers’ individuality and contribution. Respect for the sustainability of our business and the world around us.

Sustainability

At Highsoft, commitment to a culture of integrity is paramount to our success. We strive towards being the best organization we can, not only to our customers, but also for our employees, local community, and the environment. We are extremely proud to announce our acceptance into the United Nation’s Global Compact, the largest voluntary initiative for Corporate Social Responsibility. This is an imperative step towards formalizing our work with CSR. Read more about efforts.
