Our mission is to create economic opportunities so people have better lives.
Upwork is the world’s work marketplace that connects businesses with independent talent. We serve everyone from one-person startups to 30% of the Fortune 100 with a powerful, trust-driven platform that enables companies and freelancers to work together in new ways that unlock their potential.
“Upwork's mission - to create economic opportunities so people have better lives - is a global one. It's also deeply personal to me as someone who grew up in Appalachia and knows so many talented folks there seeking economic opportunities. I am inspired every day by the work we do at Upwork to help break down longstanding geographic barriers so that you can build the career you want, whether that's in Appalachia or nearly anywhere else. “
“There is no ‘typical day’ at Upwork. Each day I get to show up and tackle new challenges. Being able to work closely with my teams and cross-functional key partners gives me more visibility into how we work together cohesively to further Upwork’s mission. Having this visibility and ability to understand department-level key objectives enables me to better support the business and positively accelerate my career path.”
Helping businesses and talent reach their full potential
“It means a lot to me that my career is something that feels like a net positive in the world. The fact that me and my team are helping others obtain work opportunities doing tasks they enjoy, with the flexibility to work remotely and choose their own hours is so rewarding.”
