The Washington Post Names Upside a 2023 Top DC-area Workplace

June 16, 2023

Washington, D.C., June 16, 2023 — Upside, a D.C.-based retail technology company, has been named one of The Washington Post’s 2023 Top Workplaces. The award is based entirely on employee feedback, and reinforces Upside’s commitment to nurturing a  culture of innovation and professional development across all levels. 

“Upside’s success and workplace culture is driven by the passion and hard work of each team member, and I am so proud to see their contributions being recognized externally,” said Upside co-founder and Chief Executive Officer, Alex Kinnier. “We are committed to nurturing a culture that drives our team's development while making a positive difference in the world.”

Upside’s selection is based solely on employee feedback gathered through an anonymous third-party survey administered by research partner Energage, LLC, which measured several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection. 

“For the past ten years, the Top Workplaces list has been a credible guide to companies, old and new, in the D.C. region where employees feel valued,” said Washington Post Top Workplaces editor Bronwen Latimer. “As a new generation enters the workforce, the Post is more committed than ever to highlighting the changing landscape of work and how these companies are thriving in it.”

As the need for Upside’s product grows, so does our team. Upside is actively looking to fill positions in multiple offices and remotely. This Washington Post recognition follows Upside inclusion on a number of other lists in 2023, such as Built In’s 100 Best Places to Work in Washington, D.C. and a certification as a 2023 U.S. Top Workplace.
