"We started to work with UPPER as part of our strategy for recruiting senior developers. UPPER understood our needs and proposed us highly dedicated engineers who deliver good quality work in a timely manner."

Daniel Smaranda
SmartMS PM, Streamwide S.A

"The people at UPPER have a good feeling for what their customers need. After a very short briefing they found the perfectly fitting designer and developer for our project. Will definitely work more often with them!"

Philipp Scheller
CEO, ITR8 Product Innovation GmbH

"UPPER was instrumental in helping us form a mobile team that quickly turned our paper prototypes into iOS and Android applications deployed to 1000s of Swiss companies."

Frequently Asked Questions

  • We always start with a short call to clarify your needs. If we are confident we can provide the right person for the role, we start matching immediately and get back with the right candidate in a matter of days. From there, you can conduct a personality fit with the proposed talent and decide if they match your project.

  • We typically secure a remote talent within 2-3 business days, while on-site can take up to 2 weeks.

  • We charge a fixed service fee on top of the freelancer rate. The day rate you see next to the talent profile is the only fee you pay. There are no hidden costs or fees associated.

  • Every engagement starts with a trial period, during which you can cancel the engagement at any point and don't have to pay the service fee. Depending on the engagement length, the trial period can be up to 2 weeks in length. After the trial period is over, the usual cancellation policy applies.

  • We are a platform that charges a fixed service fee. We find & screen Europe's top tech professionals, match the right minds with the right jobs, offer dedicated support and quality control and provide tools for all sides to easily manage engagements, invoicing, agreements, activity tracking and much more.

  • Delivery teams are custom assembled to build your product and are lead by a Product Manager. 1+ Freelancers can be any of our talent type (developer, designer, product manager) and act as an extension of your existing team, to speed up delivery.

  • We pride ourselves in having the best tech and product people in Europe. This means we cover most tech stacks, a variety of design topics, and product and project management.

  • We have a multi-stage interview process which is conducted by a team of professionals who are already "battle proven" members of our community. Every person in the network has to go through our personality fit interview (where we check their soft skills as well as spoken English). From there they are given a "take-home" assignment which is then reviewed, before they are invited to a technical interview. The process is the same across talent types, from developers to UI/UX designers to Product Managers.

  • We are currently focused exclusively on Europe, with talent in every EU member state. This ensures great timezone overlap possibilities, as well as option for occasional on-site visits.
