We Make Jira More Inclusive
Old Street Solutions is a global Atlassian Marketplace partner that makes software designed to simplify and demystify Atlassian’s powerful tools. We do this so that the average Jira and Confluence user can get more from those platforms without the need take a training course or learn a new programming language.
Bridging the Jira Knowledge Gap
Jira and Confluence have grown beyond the software development teams they were made for. Increasing numbers of business users, beginners and other non-programmers are using these platforms for project management and support. Our apps enable those people to do the things that traditionally only the experts could do, like custom Jira reporting.
Old Street Solutions is the brainchild of Tom Harris, Jacek Debiec, and Chris Cooke — three nerdy guys who’ve been flight instructors, coffee importers and turtle rescuers before landing in software. After working in the Atlassian ecosystem for several years, they saw a gap in the market for add-ons that make Atlassian’s powerful functionality more inclusive and accessible to general users.
To that end, in 2018 they founded Old Street Solutions in Central London. Named for our proximity to Old Street Roundabout, AKA Silicon Roundabout, today we’re a fully distributed and growing team spanning the US, UK, Slovakia, Poland, and Australia. In 2020, our flagship app, Custom Charts for Jira, was the fastest-growing paid app in the Atlassian Marketplace.
Why Old Street?
- We have over 30 years of combined experience working as Atlassian consultants and developers, and know the toolset like the backs of our hands. We fully understand the needs and pains of Jira and Confluence users and design our apps to solve them.
- We simply want ALL employees to be happier and work smarter, without barriers and bureaucracy. Happier employees make businesses more productive.
- Unlike many software companies, we’re not driven by a desire to make money. We’re interested in making the best apps possible and continuously reinvest our profits into research and development in order to do that.
- We’re always listening to and collaborating with our customers and partners to make our apps even more useful and accessible. We release updates and improvements on a weekly basis.
MEET OUR TEAM
“If we’re not making mistakes, we’re not trying hard enough.”
“But that doesn’t make any sense.”
*Fact check: the crab was only a little bit larger than usual, pinching Jacek’s little finger doesn’t mean it ate people, and flicking it off his board probably isn’t ‘wrestling’.
“No one cares about your sales pitch if you can’t solve their problem.”
“I wasn’t moving knowing I was destined for more.”
“People don’t care if software has great ‘this’ or brilliant ‘that’, but what this and that can do for them.”
