Upwave is hiring!

Upwave is hiring a new chief marketing officer (CMO) to drive growth further

UpWave is a task management tool launched early in 2016. They spent the remainder of the year finding product/market fit, and have now paying users in 30 countries. They have been featured on product hunt and are continuously improving based on the feedback of the community.

Email and messenger apps create a constant stream of information, with little way of sorting and overview. The UpWave target user is currently using a myriad of tools, such as spreadsheets, email, SMS and post-its for task management. Products such as Jira, ProjectPlace and Basecamp are cumbersome to use and feel cluttered. UpWave is task management for teams made easy.

They believe in getting paid for quality software – not giving it away for free.

They are an enthusiastic team of five, four based in Oslo and one in Bogota, Colombia. Their ability to learn from their mistakes, adapt and work fast has been key to developing UpWave.
