WASHINGTON, D.C., February 10, 2023 — Upside today announced that multiple industry awards recognized the company as an exceptional workplace. The company gained certification as a 2023 U.S. Top Workplace, an award based entirely on employee feedback from an engagement survey completed by the employees of participating workplaces. In addition, Upside has been listed as #26 on Built In’s 100 Best Places to Work in Washington, D.C. and was an honorable mention on The Muse’s 2022 Vibe Awards: Best Companies for Office Life and Perks list.
“Our most valuable asset at Upside is our team, and we’ve worked diligently to create an environment that can help them build their own careers while meaningfully impacting the world,” said Upside co-founder and CEO Alex Kinnier. “We’re honored to be recognized for the investment workplace and will continue to prioritize our culture as we grow our company and its impact.”
Based entirely on employee feedback, Top Workplaces USA and The Muse’s VIBE Awards nationally recognized companies that prioritize a people-centered culture and give their employees a voice. Built In determines winners based on an algorithm, using company data about compensation, total rewards and companywide programming while weighing flexible work opportunities, diversity, equity, and inclusion programs, and other people-first offerings.
“I continue to learn every day at Upside and constantly gain new skills, mainly because I am surrounded by so many experts in different fields here,” explained Vanessa Roshan, Senior Engineering Manager. “At Upside, I’m getting to experience what it is like to support a company with very accelerated growth and help solve any challenges along the way.”
These honors come after a year of record growth for the retail technology company, which was recognized on Deloitte’s 2022 Technology Fast 500 list and Inc.’s 5000 list, awards that celebrate the most innovative, fastest-growing public and private companies in North America. In addition, the company increased its staff count by 35% between 2021 and 2022 and opened a new office in New York City.
Upside is continuing to grow in 2023 and is actively looking to fill positions in multiple offices and remotely. These awards exemplify Upside’s dedication to building a workplace representative of the communities they serve, with various backgrounds, skills and perspectives.
