The Upfront blog is run by a couple of software engineers out of Seattle, WA. Between us, we've worked at big companies, small companies, startups, and we've had our own businesses. Other interesting and arguably relevant jobs we've had: wait staff at a retirement home, snow cone stand operator, and horse-manure scooper (this was actually a volunteer position and sadly paid exactly $0).

We started this project as a way to share our experiences, as well as to highlight current trends and progressive policies in hiring practices, talent retention, and company culture. Expect blogs, newsletters, more cute puppy photos as well as a beta product you can request access to here.
