About Uplift

Uplift is a fast paced incubator of products. While it may seem like just another software agency, we take things up a level by having a product-oriented team. We’re a group of incredibly smart, passionate, well-rounded individuals and we’re looking for other engineers to join our stellar team.

About the role

The ideal candidate is a US-based Senior Software Engineer with 8+ years of professional experience. In this role, you must be able to work independently with little supervision. You have excellent communication skills, problem solving skills, and attention to detail.

Your role primarily involves developing high-quality software—web and mobile applications—that is aligned with user needs and business goals.

You’ll have plenty of opportunities for ownership and responsibility. Uplift’s team is primarily full-stack engineers who weigh in on product requirements. Design your own work schedule. What else is great about this role? You get to work on a variety of projects over time. Benefit from our shared resources and knowledge.

We typically start with a 1099 contract for 3-6 months before offering a traditional W-2 employment, but we’re flexible. Employment benefits include:

  • Reimbursement towards your own health insurance (we offer QSEHRA)
  • 401(k) with 5% employer matching
  • Ownership in the company, with profit-sharing distributions so everybody wins

Why You'll Love Working at Uplift:

  • 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 or client-facing roles to drive product features.
  • Work on many different projects and cross-pollinate all the lessons and solutions.
  • Work remotely: avoid the time and energy drain of a commute. Uplift has been remote-first since inception–we’re really good at remote collaboration, and always getting better.
  • Get together in person once a year for a company off-site.
  • 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.
  • We do the heavy lifting of finding and qualifying projects (you’re welcome to help or bring in your own, if that’s a skill you enjoy sharpening), and offer a collaborative environment and shared resources to help you take on bigger contract projects than you’d be able to take on your own.
  • Uplift has no outside investors, 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.
