Work at UpBuild

Want to join the UpBuild Team?

UpBuild is a framework within which the best technical marketers in the world can execute at a high level, under ideal conditions, for clients they’re proud to partner with. If UpBuild sounds idealistic, it’s because we are and we refuse to back down from the challenge of building the best agency work environment in the world. Our goal is to build and support a team of passionate folks who love what they do, and recruiting the team is just half the battle. We want to support all of our Builders so that they can learn and grow, always do work they’re proud of, and lead a balanced life. That’s how we deliver unparalleled results for our clients.

There are few places I can unabashedly, wholeheartedly, 100% recommend as wonderful places to work. But I’ve seen how UpBuild’s staff feels about their agency — it’s unlike almost any other workplace I’ve seen. Remote-first, truly caring, and delivering superb results (for clients and employees).

Our Interview Process

Wondering what you’re in for after you submit your application? We know that looking for a new role can sometimes be ambiguous and downright stressful. We’ll never leave you wondering where you stand – here’s a look at our typical process:

  • After you apply, our Leadership Team will review your application and contact you for an initial e-mail screen if it looks like there’s a potential fit (this is a form you’ll fill out that asks you to go into more detail on a few areas than we’d ask for in the initial application).
  • If it seems like our expectations are aligned and you’d bring the skill set and perspective we’re looking for, you’ll be set up with a phone interview with our CEO and Director of Client Success.
  • Finally, you’d have 2–3 group video calls with the rest of our team. They vote on all of our prospective clients, so it’s only fair that they have a say in who they’ll be working with every day.

After that, we determine who will receive (and hopefully accept!) an offer to be the next Builder.

Equal Opportunity

UpBuild provides equal employment opportunities (EEO) to all employees and applicants for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, or genetics.
