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.
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9 to 5 is slowly becoming obsolete as an outdated time-based work system not designed for delivery-oriented work done by tech professionals.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.
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.
We believe in honesty and fair-play and we live by this value in all our relations with our customers, freelancers and partners.
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.
We are builders at heart and we believe that technology improves all our lives when it's designed and applied well.
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.
We test our assumptions, iterate fast and own our failures. We promote a sense of urgency and are relentless in making an impact.
