About Uptake

Build what comes next.

Manifesto

It’s up to our generation to build a world that works for future generations. Failure to build that world is optional. It’s on us to stand and deliver. And the time to act is now.

For we are the doers. We believe in rolling up our sleeves and doing the hard work.

Out here, the answers don’t come easy. It takes an incredible depth of know-how. We need to know every detail about how heavy industry operates. About the machines that help us do the heavy lifting.

Because we are the backbone that keeps the future on track. We’ve got groundwork to lay and foundations to build. We’re busy setting the course of destiny. The stakes are high and we can’t afford disruption.

Make no mistake: Building, maintaining, and upgrading the world’s infrastructure isn’t an easy job. Nor is it glamorous. Our sweat, grit, and perseverance often goes unrecognized.

But it’s one of the most important jobs out there. It’s how we’ll progress society, improve living standards, and support the needs of tomorrow.

Technology can get us there faster. But for too long, it’s been used to solve problems of convenience. It’s time to put it to work for the greater good by solving problems of consequence.

Technology will empower us to have total clarity. To be superhuman and see around corners. To always know what’s next and stay one step ahead.

It all starts today. The world needs doers and our job is never done. Doers adapt.

We make no small plans. We don’t sweat change. We build it. So let’s get to work.

What will your role be in building what’s next?

Mission

At Uptake, we empower people to solve hard problems, to understand their past and act on their future. We believe data is the key to a better tomorrow and that, alongside our customers, we will build what comes next.

Guiding Principles

The future depends on doers.

Great things don’t build themselves. Our world relies on people to be the makers of change. We believe in rolling up our sleeves together with our customers and doing the hard work.

There’s no success without depth of understanding.

Just like our customers, we’re masters of our craft and take great pride in what we do. We sweat the small stuff, ensuring the integrity of every data point to deliver the best results for heavy industry.

Failure shouldn’t define us.

It’s now an optional thing. We should learn from failure and use it to guide our actions. And now is the time to act. We look to the past to inform our present and chart new opportunities for a future that’s already happening.

Answers are hard, not obvious.

You don’t know what you don’t know. And that doesn’t sit well with us. When used to its full potential, data breeds superheroes. It should help people know all the facts, ask the right questions, make decisions with total clarity and see around corners.

No problem is unsolvable.

There are only chances for creativity. There’s an art to conquering industrial-scale problems. Technology empowers us to be Digital MacGyvers — to be incredibly resourceful and quickly adapt to anything that comes our way.

What do we do?

At Uptake, we build technology that turns mountains of data into meaningful intelligence. We make hard work easier by equipping people with actionable insights, empowering them solve tough problems and create a world that works for everyone.
