How we got here

We are engineering, product, project management and workforce operations experts (and geeks).

We started UpTeam® as a technical consultancy, following years of hands-on experience at leading US and international companies, shipping globally acclaimed products.

Since then, we’ve led and served on lots of teams. We’ve built and shipped a lot of production code for successful (and unsuccessful) technology startups. We’ve seen some company executives and their global development teams thrive, while others failed. Some businesses took off, some sank. We saw that none of them succeeded without a dedicated focus on teamwork.

That was our ‘Aha!’ moment

For distributed software teams and the engineers who join them, real acceleration takes more than urgency and enthusiasm.

At UpTeam®, we offer a different kind of accelerator. Our focus is in combining hands-on software expertise, smart engineers passionate about making cool stuff work better, and well-organized technical leadership.

We give startups of all sizes the freedom to pursue the product vision that delights their customers and rewards their investors.

Five things
that matter to us



We are driven by our clients’ goals. We believe that providing services for clients is about providing high-quality results that drive the clients’ business.



We are driven by sharing in the passion and curiosity of entrepreneurs. We invest emotion, time, and budget to find better ways to work together as a team.



We are here to do great work. We create space in which ideas are clarified, agreed upon, executed and learned from. In this space, we transform our ideas into the excellent results which no one of us could achieve individually.


Open Communication

We value positive and negative feedback based on honesty, integrity, and respect. In all communication, internal or external, we turn feedback into an actionable plan for constant improvement—regardless of role, rank or experience.



We understand that keeping up in an ever-changing environment and facing ambitious goals is challenging. All along the way, we always remember that each of us is a human being with unique aspirations, feelings, concerns and motivations. We should be thankful every day for the opportunity to work together.
