At Upward, we look for culture fits in our candidates, beyond just technical proficiency, and job qualifications. If our Five Core Values resonate with you, let’s talk!

1. Be Client Obsessed

We put our clients’ best interests ahead of all else. If there is ever a question, we will err toward doing the right thing for our clients. We are fiercely loyal and committed to building strong one-on-one relationships with every client. In the end, we want our client to take the glory. We want to provide great work so that our clients’ company sees them as rock stars. 

2. Never Stop Learning

We are committed to lifelong learning. From our industry leading digital marketing conference, Interact, to our proprietary internal coaching program, to producing our podcast to one-on-one professional development planning, we live to develop our people and our clients. Our curiosity and commitment to learning is one reason our clients trust us and enjoy working with us. 

3. Get Creative

When a client tells us, what keeps them up at night, we run at that challenge headfirst, thrilled by the prospect of putting our problem solving skills to good use. We welcome client obstacles and work to transform them with resourcefulness and creativity. 

4. Drive Results

We are biased toward action. We are focused on performance and substance, so we put our attention on what moves the needle and delivers tangible, accountable results for our clients. This means that our people are intentional, take initiative and stay steps ahead from kick off to product finish and beyond. 

5. Be Human

We know that at its very core, this is a people business. At the end of the day, the value in what we do comes from being there when it really counts – in both highs and lows. We are encouragers. We empathetically champion our team and our clients, and we focus our decision-making to create positive impact for individuals and success for businesses. By doing this, we can always be proud of the work we have done and the business we’ve built together.
