Our Culture

A culture of welcoming affinity

Our culture is one of belonging, where everyone feels welcome and differences are celebrated, regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, socio-economic background or religion.

At UP42, we care about more than technical and functional capabilities. That’s why we’ve created a dedicated training program to take care of our people’s soft skills, as well as special health and benefits plans to ensure a balanced personal and professional life.

Our hybrid working mode allows for flexible hours and working space, where employees can choose between the tranquility of their homes or an energized conversation with their teammates in the office.

We do all this because we live by five inspiring values:

Trust

Our office

Born in 2019 in the vibrant district of Kreuzberg, Berlin, UP42 is housed in the red-brick Umspannwerk, a former factory on the Landwehr Canal that now hosts startups, coworking spaces, and restaurants.

As one of the most exciting and diverse districts in the German capital, Kreuzberg offers a variety of cultural and natural experiences, with trendy restaurants and cafés, flea markets, art galleries and museums, parks and cycling routes, and of course, Berlin’s iconic canals.

UP42’s office is well connected to the rest of the city through public transit (The U1, U8, and buses) and within walking distance of the historic East Side Gallery and Wall Museum.
