Work-Life Balance

Work-Life Balance

Our fun-loving, action-oriented culture is possible because of a healthy work-life balance, fueled by periods of rest and camaraderie.

As a remote-first company, we understand that just because your workstation is at home doesn't mean you're always on-call to work. Our leaders encourage employees to take their PTO and to set schedule boundaries.

Upwork Embraces a Remote-First Workplace

Upwork has a rich history with more than 20 years as a remote work company. While we maintain two offices for select teams to come together for collaboration and socialization, we embrace a remote working environment as the default for our corporate team members.

What our employees say
"I joined Upwork from the social sector a few years ago because I was concerned by the unintended social consequences of major tech players. Upwork’s leadership is working to make the future of work a positive one. Since joining, I’ve been inspired to see the field as a whole take a hard look at itself and start to realize that we have to go beyond corporate social responsibility to think about both shareholders and stakeholders."
