"Why I'm Passionate About the Upwork Mission"

Upwork's mission is to create economic opportunities so people have better lives. Check out the blog post below to discover how this mission inspires and motivates some of our best and brightest on a daily basis.



My name is Eric Gilpin. I lead our enterprise sales team here at Upwork.

A typical day at Upwork is quite exciting. Not only are we partnering with customers and helping understand what their business challenges are and showing that Upwork and our platform of talent can help achieve those goals, we’re also in a really fast moving environment; things can change quickly and we’re very agile in our approach. We're a very lively, high activity, high energy, compassionate group who are not only collaborating together, but also collaborating with our customers to help them achieve their business goals.

We like to celebrate everyone’s success. From team outings to company events, to recognition programs, to our monthly all-hands, recognition is a really big part of our culture here at Upwork and fun is at the center of that.

We not only work hard, we play hard, too; we embrace working together while also making sure that we’re having fun. We do that every day here at Upwork.

I think that the biggest thing that gets me the most excited about my role here at Upwork is the constant learning. We’re in a market that continues to change every single day and we’re at the forefront of something that’s going to be really special and impactful to organizations around the world.

Learning is the core function that gets me excited, and probably what I’m most passionate about being here at Upwork.
