Our Mission is to enable companies and top product & tech freelancers to successfully work together, on demand, in a future-proof, mutually trusted setup.

Our Vision is to be the world’s digital department of the future.

Why
we do this

As automation and robotics take over manual and repetitive labour, we are transitioning to knowledge & creative work, processing information, using our minds instead of our hands.

If you mix this established trend with technology (i.e. communication) and a global economy, a very interesting future begins to emerge (particularly for software).

We believe that this future of work is largely freelance and remote, enabled by technology, new methodologies, and accumulated past experience, among other things.

Our goal is to help shape and guide it to become the best version of itself, enabling the people and companies within it to successfully engage one other and get the best work done.

Furthermore, we want to put an end to hidden, unfair high margins, “hostage projects” and to unaligned interests when building software of any kind.

We
believe that

  • Freelance (flexible) work will be the norm in the coming years, with a strong preference towards remote.

  • Companies that don’t adapt will lack the experience and culture to engage with the freelance workforce of the future.

  • Companies that don’t adapt will be unable to hire top people in the future as they move to freelance.

  • 9 to 5 is slowly becoming obsolete as an outdated time-based work system not designed for delivery-oriented work done by tech professionals.

  • We are missing much of the backbone to support this future of work (e.g. knowledge, culture, tools, processes, etc).

  • Freelance will replace employment once alternatives to employment benefits become widely accessible.

Our Core Values

People first

People are at the very heart of UPPER. Our job is to enable them to successfully engage with each other in an inclusive, respected and mutually trusted setup.

Trust

We believe in honesty and fair-play and we live by this value in all our relations with our customers, freelancers and partners.

Ownership

We act proactively and take full responsibility for our objectives. We’re self starters who own challenges and don't pass them on to others.

Innovative

We are builders at heart and we believe that technology improves all our lives when it's designed and applied well.

Entrepreneurial

We think big and often pave the path we walk on. With few or no examples to follow, having an entrepreneurial mindset is the only way to move forward.

Agile

We test our assumptions, iterate fast and own our failures. We promote a sense of urgency and are relentless in making an impact.
