Why You'll Love Working at Uplift

  • We find the work for you!
  • We offer you a team and shared resources to help you take on bigger client projects if you’re turning down opportunities.
  • Enjoy a healthy work-life balance, like everyone else at the company.
  • Embark on your own self-driven career path with opportunities for positions like tech lead.
  • Work on many different projects and cross-pollinate all the lessons and solutions.
  • Work remotely: avoid a time and energy drain of a commute. Uplift has been remote-first since inception.
  • Get together in person once a year for a company offsite.
  • Indulge in the freedom to design your own work schedule, whether that includes a four day work week, evening hours, or whatever suits you and your lifestyle, so long as it's clearly communicated.
  • You get access to Paul & Marius, two of the brightest minds in engineering & consulting.
  • Uplift has no investors, other than our team, and thus no one who can dictate the future of our company or our products. We have ultimate freedom in the projects that we choose.

As a member of our team we value your opinion. We also respect the skills you bring to our company.

We are constantly on the lookout for people who can join us. If you've got what it takes, we'll find a way to include you.
