Upside, the fastest-growing tech startup, is hiring!
Headline after headline tells us how important personalization is for people and businesses in the modern shopping experience. Online personalization is made easy by cookies and tracking, but the offline, brick and mortar world doesn't have such an advantage.
Our community staples—our grocery and convenience stores, our restaurants and cafes, our gas stations, our local hubs—have been unable to keep up with the level of personalization that online retailers can offer.
Upside is leveling the playing field.
Our team is driven every day by our mission to help communities thrive. We want to support a future where main streets are made vibrant by thriving commerce. Where downtowns are filled with the sights, sounds, smells, and tastes of local industry. Where shoppers and business owners know each other’s names.
Our technology is gaining traction not just because it works well, but because it does good. A single solution that measurably benefits people, businesses, and the planet is not something you find in a typical workplace – and it’s why our team is growing so fast.
Upside helps us turn our everyday purchases into more value for people, profit for businesses, and protection for our planet. When everyone wins, that’s the Upside.
Financially, this helps communities:
We’re so serious about putting our communities first that we don’t earn a single cent until our users and retailers do first.
Fuel is where we started — it helped us build a product doing good for everyone involved, and is what is allowing us to expand so quickly in other industries like restaurants and grocery stores. We know that helping our brick and mortar communities today means protecting our world for tomorrow, and we take that to heart.
For the planet, Upside contributes 1% of our revenue to sustainability initiatives related to each purchase. With our footprint in food and fuel, Upside has been able to:
That puts us in league with some of the biggest companies doing good.
We work just as hard internally to foster strong teams as we do externally to strengthen local communities. We Upsiders are woven together by six core values.
Our commitment to diversity, inclusivity, and work-life balance supports our team members so that together we can all thrive. Maintaining the best company culture possible is a deliberate, company-wide effort.
As we grow, we are very thoughtful about the way we build our teams. We broaden our sourcing and training at the top of the hiring funnel to remove obstacles and enable people with diverse backgrounds to make it to the end of our hiring process.
And our executives lead by example. Our leaders publicly demonstrate a healthy work-life balance (check our benefits like unlimited PTO), work cross-functionally to push forward our best ideas, and participate in the day-to-day silliness of our company to make every day.
Whether you’re in Sales, Engineering, or something in between, our product makes sense and our mission is clear. Upside delivers value no matter how you look at it – for merchants, customers, and our employees.
Our tenacious team has already achieved so much, and we want to do more to accelerate our impact. We are hiring rapidly for all types of positions to help us get there.
