“I joined Upbound for a couple of different reasons. I was originally looking for a career change. But it really started to shine to me when I actually talked to the people who were at the company. When I finally got a slice of what it’s like to work here, it seemed like the perfect place to be.”
Malika Singh, Integrated Marketing Specialist
“My work spans across two teams that are both uniquely positioned to influence. They focus on our thriving open source community and also work hands-on with our customers. We are consistently sought out for our informed opinions from the field, our concerns and pain points, and also our ideas for how we can evolve the company vision and roadmap for success.”
