The next frontier of industry – the age of big data – is upon us. At Uptake, we’re working to solve some of the most complicated problems in the industrial world. If you strive to create and build and deliver, if you’re seeking to work with people who are hungry to change how software can transform industry, then you’re ready to join our team. Extraordinary opportunities like Uptake just don’t come around every day.
Every single Uptaker thinks big – we have to, as we solve the challenges of today and build the future we want to see for our customers. Our edge is our people. We support each other, working constantly to bring out the best in ourselves and in those around us. There isn’t a “typical” Uptaker. Members of our team come from diverse backgrounds. We have doctors, poets and hackers all working side by side, fast and focused, to tackle industry’s toughest problems together. And, of course, we have fun doing it!
We’re open, clear, direct and honest in our communications. If something doesn’t make sense, we ask questions.
We know no bounds. We question, hunt, study, examine, probe, observe, peek, query and search. Whatever it takes to learn from different perspectives.
We’re nimble. We live by our entrepreneurial spirit, taking risks and learning from them. We’re always moving forward.
We embrace problems, and we don’t take “no” for an answer. We roll up our sleeves and dive in with unbridled commitment.
We speak the truth. We believe in each other. Building trust requires confidence, faith, patience and effort. We do what we say we’ll do.
We care about you, and about your personal and professional success. Here’s just a glimpse of what we offer.
Need a mental break? Take it! We practice mindfulness, and we expect you to know when you operate at your best. We trust you to know what time off you need, and to not leave your team hanging.
We’re on a constant quest to learn. Join us! Enroll in internal classes or external events of your choice. Uptake’s professional and personal development program is always growing. From data science 101 to hackathons. From productivity and public speaking to conscious leadership.
Being healthy means something different for everyone. We advocate wellbeing inside and out – emotionally, physically, financially. We offer gym and studio discounts, on-site yoga, massages, meditation, financial planning and nutrition classes, individual and team fitness challenges, and more.
We offer medical, dental, vision, life and disability insurance, plus health savings accounts, flexible spending accounts and commuter spending accounts. We don’t just offer a 401(k), we offer a match as well.
We’re all about family. We provide parental leave for primary andsecondary caregivers – birth or adoption. Our medical plan offers a Special Beginnings program to get expectant parents and their children off to a healthy start with ongoing education, guidance and support.
We launched our own in-house education program to promote ongoing learning and development. All Uptakers have access to Uptake U. Choose from a diverse array of course topics and material, enroll for intriguing classes that compel you, and track your progress throughout.
Our culture is diverse and inclusive. All Uptakers can be their unique selves at work. Our employee-led communities bring together people who are passionate about a common interest, including Pride@Uptake, Women@Uptake, Gaming@Uptake and Entrepreneurship@Uptake. All actively give back to the broader Chicago community.

I have been working at Uptake full-time (Less than a year)
I've been here over 4 months and I can definitely say that your work and opinion is valued, there are many opportunities to learn about something completely new, people are engaged, there are opportunities for professional growth, and there is a good work/life balance through wfh flexibility, flex hours, and unlimited PTO.
As with any company this size, working with IT can be quite frustrating when you've got a creative tech idea and a deadline to hit.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Uptake (Chicago, IL) in November 2016.
The recruiter I had was really on top the whole process. The whole interview process was fast and professional. One of the best interview experiences I have seen thus far. I had a phone interview first and then went in for the face to face interview two days later. I heard back from them a week later.
