Working at UpMetrics
Here’s why we love what we do, and where we work.
UpMetrics is an early-stage startup. That means we’re lean, mean (well, not really), and working hard with machines to help a cause we all care about—youth and community development. While we may not have free lunches or bean bag chairs, we do care a lot about what we’re working on, and we love where we work.
The San Francisco HQ is located at 300 Brannan Street, in the heart of SOMA. We’re right around the corner from recently (and beautifully) renovated South Park, where we often have informal meetings or gather for an afternoon coffee.
Speaking of coffee, there are two coffee houses within a block of the office—you’ll have to ask where loyalties lie amongst our staff between Blue Bottle and longtime South Park favorite Caffe Centro.
We’re also surrounded by other companies in the tech space, including Dropbox, Okta, and Splunk, and just three blocks away from AT&T Park, home of the three-time World Series champs, the San Francisco Giants. (So, naturally, summer evenings at baseball games are a must—no matter who you root for).
Our office is located on the 5th floor, with windows overlooking Second Street and 21st Amendment Brewery. And, while we might not have ping pong, we do engage in a little Nerf basketball from time to time.
But, most importantly, we like working here because we feel a common sense of mission, to support youth, afterschool, and community programs through our team management and data analytics platforms.
The programs we support help define us as a company, and serve some of the most deserving kids, giving children the benefits of a safe place from 3–6pm, as well as opportunities to learn outside the classroom.
Going forward, we see data playing a huge role in securing funding for these programs, and we want to make sure that they can build toward sustainability using the tools we build for them. That, dear reader, is what UpMetrics is all about.
