Our beautiful home

We're not your normal technology business, so we didn't want to go with the flow when choosing where to base our global HQ. Building a special product, we wanted a special setting too.

Richmond, in South West London, is where we call home. And we absolutely love it.

It's the perfect base for our people, an inspirational community to work in, and an environment that helps create an important work / life balance.

Add to that: a 'reverse commute' (you always get a seat!); clean air (great for cycling); the park on our doorstep; the riverside setting; and great local shops, restaurants, and bars. You can see why we like it.

Our awesome neighbours

We're not the only ones that love where we work, with Richmond also being home to a number of innovative technology businesses.

We are really lucky to be able to collaborate with our neighbours - until we come up against them at the pub quiz, of course.

The perfect London location

We chose Richmond as our home for a number of reasons, including:

  • Beautiful open spaces - including Richmond Park and Richmond Green
  • Riverside location - right on the Thames
  • Commuting in the opposite direction of the crowds
  • Great proximity to Heathrow (20mins)
  • Handy for Central London (20mins)
  • A safe and enjoyable commute by bike
  • The best of both city and country
  • Lots of great places to eat locally
  • All the High Street shops you need
  • Fresher, cleaner, and healthier air
  • The ability to go for a lunchtime run

Getting to / from Richmond is exceptionally easy.

Its Underground (District Line), Overground, and National Rail Services means it has brilliant and fast transport connections:

  • Clapham Junction - 8mins
  • Hammersmith - 14mins
  • Vauxhall - 16mins
  • Waterloo - 19mins
  • Victoria - 20mins
  • Wimbledon - 20mins
  • Earls Court - 21mins
  • West Hampstead - 26mins
  • Paddington - 29mins
  • Canary Wharf - 34mins

Our values

It does seem like every company plasters their values all over their website these days - and ubiquitous "Move Fast and Break Things" posters adorn walls of technology companies all around the world. But we really mean what we say when we talk about our values. We live them. And we measure against them when we hire too, so please have a read...

Transparency

We’ve all worked in companies where we’ve known very little about what’s going on, the wider context, or the big picture. We share transparently to avoid this and focus intently on internal communications.

Trust

Everyone at Upgrade Pack owns a bit of the company, so trust is of paramount importance. It is about behaving responsibly and adhering to the mantra of “treat others how you’d like to be treated.”

Progressive

“Push forward” is a phrase we use a lot at Upgrade Pack. Whether to maintain pace, try something that’s not been done before, or agree a “90% done, let’s launch and learn” approach to what we’re working on.

Innovation

As a technology company, we have a natural obsession with innovation. We create, problem solve, pivot, and change frequently. We don’t stop at our product either – we want every team member to innovate. Daily.

Inclusion

We’re building a company where everyone can be themselves at work every day. Diverse, inclusive, and variety-seeking, we see only two things when hiring: ability to do the role and contribute to our culture.

Global

We work with clients, partners, and users from all around the world. We’re proud to be building a diverse company that works globally. We always find people who love to travel amongst the most interesting.

Collaboration

We’re a team (of teams). And we’re all individuals. We value both equally – and we really celebrate when they 'play well together' to build a team of different people with different skills. It helps us form a dream team.

Balance

We focus on hiring people who ‘get it right’ most of the time. Everything from treating others fairly to being able to prioritise effectively. Balance comes hand in hand with good strong judgement, of course.

Our benefits

  • Competitive salary
  • The potential for share options
  • A genuine ‘work life balance’ commitment from our CEO
  • A unique pot of 50 days per year to be used when it suits you:
    • 25 days’ annual leave
    • 8 days’ public holidays
    • 15 days’ “work from anywhere” allowance
    • 2 days’ for community / volunteering work
  • Company pension (with matched contributions)
  • A Learning & Development fund
  • Opportunities to travel
  • The technology you need to thrive
  • A fun and friendly place to work – with the social calendar, team lunches, inspiring office environment, freshly stocked kitchen, Thursday afternoon bar, and inspiring events you’d expect of an innovative technology business

Creating a comprehensive package of benefits was really important to us, and we're proud that every member of the Upgrade Pack team has access to a package that we believe stands head and shoulders above our peers.

We take care of our people, and believe it's the only way to build the best team.

Our benefits package includes everything shown here, with new benefits added regularly.
