How we work today:
We solve the toughest problems. The team focus is guided by something we call The Sales Bible, which is a living knowledge bank with lessons learned, research results and tips from the most successful sales teams. This helps us shape Upsales and constantly learn more about our customers' challenges.
We're data-driven , and our Bible also serves as a guiding light here for how we measure success and what problems we tackle. We think it's important to understand the result we want to achieve before trying to solve a challenge. A measurable goal is something everyone can agree on. This allows us to celebrate when we have succeeded and continue experimenting when we have not reached all the way.
We're agile. For us, this means that we always strive to deliver value as quickly as possible to our users. Therefore, we do everything in our power to test, evaluate and scrap ideas as quickly as possible. A way of working that means we don't get stuck in projects that require a long time to create value.
We fail fast. Some of the most important (and most difficult) challenges you face are being able to quickly test and split your project into multiple parts to quickly gather feedback and verify if the team is on track. This also places great responsibility on your role to recognise when a project needs to change direction and to find intelligent ways to test the team's ideas. Which methods the team wants to work with is up to the themm.
We compete against big players, and that requires us to be competitive. We like the competition and to win we need world-class performance. In all areas.
We hate prestige, and we love to make things happen. Bureaucracy and lengthy processes are precisely what we are fighting against. Most companies rate their performance according to standards such as bronze, silver and gold. We aim higher. We aim for a Diamond-level standard in every part of Upsales.
Our core principles:
Move fast and get shit done
Take extreme ownership
No primadonnas allowed
In addition to all the great benefits of working at one of Sweden's best workplaces, we promise you a developing role with:
Learning during working hours
Great career opportunities in a fast-growing company
Offices in central Stockholm and Linköping
6 weeks vacation
Gym at the office (Stockholm)
Many joint activities (kick-off, monthly meetings and other fun activities)
Stock option program for key individuals
