Liviu Malvin Cornita

Full stack developer

There's a feeling of working in a very small company operating in a giant landscape. This is the real deal, real companies looking for experienced professionals. Independence, excellent projects, plentiful opportunities, travel opportunity just to name few perks. UPPER is constantly looking for a ways to improve and be more innovative asking for feedback on a regular basis. Joining a company that's succeeding it's always a big perk, anyone joining would take part in "story of success at UPPER".
