Meet your product goals without burning out your people.
Uplevel is the engineering insights solution that empowers teams by leveraging data from everyday tools.
We measure a multitude of data points that reveal indicators of work, focus, collaboration, and process. To do this, we look to the everyday tools that software developers use to get work done, like code repositories, messaging apps, and meetings.
Why we Do It
The world of work is experiencing a burnout epidemic.
Engineers are delivering under pressure, managers are still adjusting to remote teams, and we’re often sacrificing personal well-being for professional achievements.
Uplevel envisions a future in which engineers are able to focus on what matters and feel proud of delivering innovation that positively impacts the world. We empower engineering teams with data and science-driven insights so they can feel more supported, effective, and engaged in their work.
Productivity is more than a single measurement
Each individual data point tells us something. Only by weaving it all together does data tell a story.
Data sparks effective conversations
Data is not a diagnosis. Instead, worthwhile analysis inspires discussions about “why”—and shapes next steps.
Everyone in the org deserves access to data
Our insights support developers, managers, and executives, because success relies on all of us.
How it works
1. Uplevel collects relevant data from everyday tools
like calendar, messaging, project management, code repos, and engagement surveys.
2. We always protect your privacy
by redacting sensitive information and only focusing on significant patterns.
3. Using machine learning & org. science
our patent pending application analyzes your data and generates actionable insights.
4. Your team is empowered to improve
with easy-to-read visuals and coaching delivered daily to managers as well as engineers.

How Zipwhip increased Deep Work for better team focus
Zipwhip partnered with Uplevel to improve personal well-being metrics and implement positive cultural changes across the company.
In a one-month period, every group at Zipwhip showed a noticeable increase in Deep Work.
“Uplevel aggregates data from different tools and correlates insightful data that helps me understand the bigger picture. Having information at my fingertips—without having to dig into other tools—has enabled me to have more fruitful conversations that result in more working time and better work-life balance. I review Uplevel reports every Friday to plan what conversations need to be had with my team. I can’t imagine how I could have done these things without Uplevel, especially during the pandemic.”
-Samrat Kumar, Senior manager of software engineering, Avalara
