Viva la Amsterdam 🚲

We’ve attracted a friendly bunch so far. To celebrate ten years of Upperdog, we bid bon voyage to British shores and descended upon Amsterdam for a weekend of respectability, civilised conversation, and sensible behaviour 👀.

I wanted to say a massive thank you. I am so lucky to work alongside a group of people who are this passionate and who continue to bring new ideas to the company.

Work perks

We like to show gratitude to the fantastic team who make us who we are. Flexitime, WFH, a dog-friendly office, and 30 days holiday (plus bank holidays) are just a few of the perks on offer. Take a peek at our Instagram for the latest celebrations.

Dog friendly

They may not achieve quite the same level of work as their human counterparts, but our dog-friendly office is still a canine haven.

Work from home

Working from the office is so 2019. Well, sort of. We all come in at least two days a week, but beyond that, the choice is yours.

Flexitime

Need to leave early to make it to badminton practice? Understandable. Flexitime allows you to work to a timetable that suits you.

Holidays

You can never have enough holiday, but as we had to put a number on it, we settled for 30 days plus bank holidays. Not bad, eh?

Office location

Overlooking Bournemouth Gardens and a three-minute walk to the beach. As locations go, you can’t do much better.

Private medical

A generous private medical plan ensures you’re all set for any dentistry, optician appointments, contact lenses, and so on.

Quarterly team days

Teamwork makes the dream work. And who doesn’t love bowling a perfect strike on a Wednesday afternoon?

Team lunches

Sandwiches and last night’s lasagne are great and all, but do you know what’s even better? Monthly meals out as a team.

Career progression

We want to help people develop, and as they do, we want to recognise it. Learn skills, widen your knowledge, and be the best.

Training budget

That said, being the best sometimes needs external help. A generous training budget ensures that extra development is available.

Membership contribution

Have a gym membership on the go? It pays to be active, so we’ll contribute toward the monthly fees or costs.

Snack trolley

Because everybody loves an afternoon snack, right? To quote our favourite wizard, “We’ll take the lot.”
