U.S. Country Manager

UpSlide helps people work better on Microsoft Office.

About Us

UpSlide is a rapidly growing, profitable and self-funded tech scale-up whose mission is to help professionals work better. We are looking for an outstanding Country Manager to lead our US team to success.

We are the number one productivity solution provider for Financial Services. Our software dramatically improves the functionality of Microsoft Office, enabling users at firms like Citi, KPMG, and BNP Paribas to focus on high value tasks rather than spending time formatting or copy-pasting.

Today, the company is scaling-up with 100 employees across our offices in major financial centers: New York, London, Paris (HQ), Singapore, and Berlin.

The US market is highly strategic for UpSlide and we are investing heavily in our NYC-based team.

Despite the pandemic, we grew by 40% globally and by 65% in the US market in 2020, equipping thousands of professionals with our solution.

We plan to double the US team within 18 months to achieve our ambition for the US market.
