No longer accepting applications


Are you a talented Java developer with experience in Solr? Notice how we didn’t ask anything else. And that matters.

At Upland, we believe the best talent can come from anywhere. We won’t distinguish between someone with a blue-chip background from London and someone who did small, local software development projects in Lahore. Beyond the basics - years of experience and technologies used - we filter on cognitive capacity and programming ability, and that’s it. And we pay everyone the same, no matter where in the world they are.

We’ve found that our SaaS products are better for it. Ultimately, it’s our talented employees’ care and hard work that deliver business outcomes for our ten thousand customers like The New York Times, Verizon, LiveNation, and The Gap.

So whether you’re looking for your first opportunity to work on SaaS products for a big company, or you’ve already got great experience and want to increase your salary, we want to hear from you!
