Software Development Company


Roar Software was formed in 2015 by Paul McKay.  Paul had worked as an independent contractor in the industry for many years, gaining valuable skills and a real insight into what it took to not just build good software, but how a bespoke software development company should operate.

Roar has enjoyed rapid growth with the majority of new business approaches coming as a result of word of mouth, and new business won due to fair pricing and a commitment to deliver what the customer really needs.

Ours is a hardworking team but we do like to have a bit of fun together too! We are also proud to have supported our local schools and colleges in the past by offering both long- and short-term placements.

“We work with our customers to identify their problems and identify opportunities to improve their efficiency. The customer is involved in the whole development process to ensure the proposed solution is fit for purpose.”

Paul McKay
Founder and Lead Developer


Paul McKay has over 20 years experience in software development and formed Roar Software in 2015.
Working closely with his team of developers Paul believes Roar Software are well positioned to deliver the personal service you expect to get from a single contractor with all the benefits of truly engaging with a company. Paul is a results focused, no-nonsense systems architect and software developer who encourages his team to continue developing themselves as well as their software solutions and knowledge.

It’s not just software projects that Paul likes to get his teeth into though – he usually has a couple of DIY projects on the go too (when he’s not practising with his English Longbow, tinkering with his car or watching football!). Paul also enjoys spending time with his 2 daughters.
