Rail is set to dominate short and medium haul travel around the world. It’s faster, cheaper, greener, and more convenient than air travel, and it cuts down on the carbon emitting congestion of road travel. With the current climate crisis, it’s more important than ever to put this mode of transport at the forefront of people's minds. For every travel company, having rail as a booking option is like having vegan choices on the menu – it’s a must! The trouble is, there’s been nothing modern about rail’s online customer experience… until now. 

We are SilverRail, a global tech company working to solve this problem by delivering the digital infrastructure that opens up rail to the world! Our technology is powering rail and travel agencies across Europe, USA, and Australia/NZ in both leisure and corporate markets, making it easy for people to choose rail and cut their carbon emissions.  

In Sweden we provide complete technology solutions for the nation’s biggest rail carrier SJ, and our team are focussed on providing the best continuing service for this client while moving forward to future projects. We are using the Agile (Big Room Planning) framework for all our software development, and we believe in ‘fail-fast-fail-early’ to find innovative solutions to complex problems. 

Our Swedish HQ is in central Stockholm and we have a satellite office in Norrköping, while our global teams are also based in London, Boston and Brisbane. Our agility and refreshingly novel approaches mean we have already developed into a force to be reckoned with in the rail tech market, but we have ambitions for so much more!
