WE STAND FOR UKRAINE🇺🇦
Uptech team was formed by Ukrainian developers who want to live and work in Ukraine. Along with the whole Ukrainian people, we feel a lot of sorrow about the ongoing war and the destruction it brings. However, Uptech team, and each member individually, choose to stay strong and act.
Since the first day of the war, we actively joined the IT army of Ukraine to make DDoS attacks on russian websites.
Besides that, Uptech was among the first IT companies who made donations to the “Come Back Alive” fund (8 000 000 UAH).
Some of us have bravely joined the territorial defense forces and became volunteers. For such people, Uptech provides an opportunity to work part-time.
Also, we realize how hard it might be to lose a job these days. So for the newcomers joining Uptech from 24 February, we may pay salaries upfront. Moreover Uptech keeps 100% of the team, has financial reserves, cuts expenses, and pays taxes up-front.
During all these days, we stay together as a team, supporting and helping each other to hold on.
We believe in the power of truth, the Ukrainian National Army, and teamwork.
Join Uptech and become a part of a conscious, smart, and fun community!
