What excites you about working at Orchard?

The secret sauce of Orchard Software is the people. For almost 15 years, I’ve had the privilege to work with some amazing people (many of whom I consider lifelong friends) that consistently put their clients’ and colleagues’ needs before their own.

What's the best thing about your job?

I’ve called Orchard home for nearly 20 years and feel like I have grown up here. I get to work with innovative, creative people—each of whom bring their own unique expertise to our products, company, and culture. Of course, the benefits and compensation are always top notch, but the true joy of working for Orchard is genuinely loving going to work each day to see what we can think of next.

In our employees' own words...


Throughout Orchard’s history our culture has been that we work together as a TEAM. We care for one another unconditionally, and we are willing to go out of our way with no questions asked. We are Orchard Strong!

Bruce Heitman, Senior Regional Sales Representative, Orchard Software

Every time we take a client live we assume an enormous responsibility to deliver meaningful lab data to clinicians who then make life and death decisions with that information. We take that responsibility to heart.

Matt Modleski, EVP of Corporate Development, Orchard Software

Being the 12th employee hired at Orchard, and celebrating my 25th year in 2023, I have seen a lot of growth and change. The biggest change I have seen is the expanded functionality that has been added to Orchard’s software portfolio. For 30 years, Orchard continues to stay relevant in the laboratory market. While other laboratory software vendors have come and gone, Orchard Software continues to keep its focus on the laboratory and the Orchard name is synonymous with excellence in the laboratory industry.
