Mission: Uptake aims to create a world that always works: One where the machines and equipment we depend on daily don’t break, and industrial companies are once again the creators of economic growth and opportunity.
I worked at Uptake full-time (More than a year)
AWESOME DATA SCIENCE CULTURE! It's amazing to work with and learn from very talented data scientists. The data science team gives you opportunities to deal with different datasets, to solve variety of industry problems, to explore cutting edge techniques, and to contribute to open source communities. Also, the data science management cares about you, listen to your opinions and make changes if necessary.
Great opportunities to work with people outside of the data science team. I've learnt so much from engineers, product managers, UX designers, etc. Most people I've interacted with are extremely smart and nice to work with.
Great office environment, coffee, food, fruit and snacks. I personally enjoy those benefits a lot
IOT is new, Data Science is new, as a startup, Uptake definitely made wrong decisions before and still has a lot of challenges. It's very hard to grow a startup but I'm happy to see Uptake sailing in the right direction
Advice to Management
Less re-orgs and keep talented people
I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Uptake in May 2016.
I applied online and got a call from the recruiting team and was set up for initial telephone round with Manager where he went through the resume and asked my couple of behavioral questions. LIke where do you see your self in 5 years and so most of the questions were from my Resume.
We are honored to be listed on LinkedIn's first-ever "Top Companies | Startups" List.
