UpSlide was founded by two former Associates from Big Four audit and M&A advisory firms
Our mission is to help office workers work better and faster with technology
Today, we are around 40 people across three offices in London, New York and Paris (HQ)
We're growing the team and have exciting challenges and ambitious plans
We have high standards but don't take ourselves too seriously
We embody 3 essential values. They contribute to our strength and make us unique:
Excellence: we think that every detail counts, and we attach great importance to the quality of our deliverables.
Trust: we are passionate, committed and free to act with autonomy.
Happiness at work: we enjoy looking on the bright side and we share our enthusiasm with our colleagues and customers.
It all started when Antoine and Philippe met in June 2009.
They shared the desire to help people work better, and a passion for technology – Excel in particular. The first version of UpSlide launched in 2011 and it attracted financial teams – for example at Mazars, where UpSlide is now deployed in 40 countries. In 2015, UpSlide opened a London and a New York office.
UpSlide’s unique strategic positioning involves three-fold expertise: Finance, Technology and Design. Our ambition: we want to give back time for thought and creativity through beautiful, smart tools.
How to apply...
We take care of the entire process for you so we can manage and remove poor experiences like ghosting, no feedback, no updates and so on.
All you have to do is let your Relationship Manager know you’re interested, ask them any questions you have and they will take care of the rest.
Straight to the front
From there, what’s next is super simple
If you like the initial sound of the company/ role. We then act as your “in” with them and set up an initial phone chat with you and the Hiring Manager there.
The chat will be pretty informal and should only last 10-15 minutes - It's a fact find for both of you.
More than prepared
Before the call we will send you EVERYTHING you'll need to know about the company / who they are looking for / format of the call and so on.
You will be fully prepared and know what to expect at every stage.
