Before forming Seagrass Software, Simon Pickering spent 6 years working as both a software developer and electronics engineer for Rolls Royce, after graduating from Birmingham University. At Rolls Royce he developed applications such as a nuclear reactor test and monitoring facility for Naval submarines, as you can imagine to the highest possible standard.

Then, in 1999 Simon founded Seagrass Software Ltd. At a time when the world wide web and email were gaining popularity in businesses and in the home. Before anybody had heard of Google or iPhone and computers and software were often in headlines over stories such as the Millennium Bug (Y2K).

Using the software experience he’d gained at Rolls Royce, Simon assembled a team of first-class developers at Seagrass. His goal: To help customers understand how software could help their organisation by explaining things without jargon and listening to what they are aiming to achieve, to work closely and involve the customer throughout the process to ensure what is delivered is what was expected.
