Uplevel’s Mission

Our mission is to ensure every level of the software development organization makes confident, reliable decisions with data. We believe the new era of engineering leadership will be made up of data-dominant organizations that push the limits of product velocity. They will not only generate exceptional ROI for their businesses, but also greatly accelerate the positive impact of technology. Uplevel will help drive this change.

Our philosophy

Software development is a critical part of business. Finding ways to ship faster and with higher quality code is what fuels business results. Uplevel believes that the best software organizations accelerate product velocity by measuring progress toward business objectives, staying attuned to key operational health metrics such as DORA, and synthesizing these measures with leading indicators of developer satisfaction and experience, or happiness. We call them people, process, and operational metrics.

Software engineering organizations, like any other discipline, performs best when everyone is clear on the metrics that positively impact the business, and the business sets up a positive environment in which everyone can perform at their best.
