Job Description:

Meet Upside:
Upside is a high-growth retail technology company driving hundreds of millions of dollars in proven profit to brick and mortar businesses. Unlike the many apps and services that provide discounts to consumers but actually hurt retailer profitability, Upside is the only two-sided marketplace that provides proven incremental profit to retailers. Tens of thousands of retailers nationwide are seeing a 52% ROI on average-results that have been independently audited by Fortune 500 and third-party analytics companies. On the consumer side of the marketplace, millions of users power $5 billion in purchases through the Upside platform every year. They use our top-rated mobile app to see 2 to 3 times more value on their purchases than with any other product. By helping people and businesses do better, communities grow stronger. You'll join a Team whose experience hails from places such as Google, Uber, Instacart, Capital One, and MasterCard with proven startup executives and venture capitalists. -
Upside was named #2 on Deloitte's 2021 list of Fastest Growing 500 Tech Companies and - #308 in Inc.'s America's fastest growing private companies of 2022. Upside's Series D was raised in March 2022 and led by General Catalyst at a $1.5B valuation. Other investors include Bessemer Ventures and Formation8.
