What makes UP special? Our unique cloud-based model. Our people. Our way of life.

It’s the people of UP who make it so special. We have some of the most talented people in our business and they deserve the spotlight. Our global community of more than 200 like-minded individuals work together in cohesive, distributed teams. Sometimes our teams are located near each other, and other times they are separated by continents. But wherever they are, they bring expertise, diligence and creative thinking to their jobs.
So you like the idea of becoming part of a global community that works through distributed teams in the cloud. But what does that mean?

How do you join UP?

We are an exclusive and tight-knit member community with handpicked members and experts from all over the globe. To join UP you can either be recommended by one of our trusted clients or members, or fill in this member application form
It’s fair to say that the demands we place on members and the way we work as a connected community are not for everyone. An application to join UP requires a referral from at least one existing member and an endorsement from a second member after a personal interview.
Every week we get applicants wanting to join us from all over the world and we turn the majority down because they do not come with a referral, or they do not have the necessary background.

Apart from demonstrating excellence in a particular area, candidates have to agree to abide by a simple set of our Rules and Business Conditions before membership is approved. And they must bring something to the table that UP does not already have.

What is e-ployment®?

We don't offer traditional employment. We are not after a network of freelancers. We believe there’s a much better model. We call it e-ployment®. UP doesn't have traditional offices. Or employees. All of our members work remotely though the cloud, and they have for many years. UP members might work at one of our Creative Hubs in Stockholm, Malmö, Uppsala, Hamburg, Amsterdam, London, Guildford, Sydney, or New York. Or at their own home offices, a local cafe, or a client's office.
