Product Design Manager
Upsiide is a consumer intelligence platform that allows companies to take a mobile-first, gamified approach to online research that gets you actionable insights from your target audience in minutes, not days.

They question established research practices and are passionate about helping our clients to move their businesses forward. People at Upsiide are not only comfortable working in a fast-moving organization – it’s where they thrive.
