Working at Upbeat

Social events

We're a social bunch, whether it's celebrating someones birthday with cake and drinks in the office, staff Christmas parties or heading out of the city for our annual summer away days.  We work hard to make sure Upbeat is a fun and welcoming place to work. 


We are absolutely not a typical office with people sitting at desks from nine to five! 

We provide flexible working hours and are happy for you to work from home some of the time too. Whether you prefer hubbub, or peace and quiet, we’re here to help you achieve.

Cycle scheme

Many of us in the office cycle to work, and when we're not at our desks building websites and apps, we're out on the local trails and hills on our mountain bikes.

We run the CycleScheme to give everyone an incentive to get out and ride their bike!

Pension scheme

We pay in when you pay in! 

If you enjoy working here as much as the rest of us do, you’ll still be here when you hit retirement age, so you might as well start thinking about that pension now, and Upbeat can help you start building that nest egg.

Company-wide gross profit scheme

We have a company-wide gross profit scheme set up, so the more money the company makes, the bigger your share! And what’s not to like about that?

Don't see anything in your skillset?

Get in touch with us anyway, we're always happy to talk with passionate web people!
