We value work-life harmony and believe that family and mental health should always come first. 

The Company:

UpKeep was founded by our CEO, Ryan Chan, based on an idea he had while using outdated desktop software as a process engineer in a manufacturing plant. He believed a mobile-first solution could significantly improve the workflow and productivity of the technicians he was working with. He was determined to build on this vision— so he quit his job, learned to write code, and created the first version of UpKeep in 2014, while living in his parents garage.

Today, our cloud-based software-as-a-service (SaaS) and IoT technology is modernizing the way thousands of businesses around the world maintain their facilities and equipment. Customers love UpKeep's mobile application because it gives them the ability to manage projects, teams, and work orders on-the-go. We're replacing tedious paperwork and cumbersome spreadsheets so technicians can focus on the work that matters most. We also provide advanced reporting tools and powerful integrations which enable businesses to make data-driven decisions that improve efficiency and decrease costs.

We are the most innovative and easy-to-use Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS) and Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) software available. We proudly serve deskless workers in industries like manufacturing, healthcare, food production, energy, education, hospitality, fitness, public works, construction, building, and property management. With over 1,500 positive customer reviews, UpKeep is the market leader on Gartner, G2, GetApp, and Capterra,

We've raised $50 million following a Series B funding round led by world-renowned VC's including Insight Partners, Emergence Capital, Mucker, and Y Combinator (YC W17). These investors recognized that only 1% of venture capital has been invested in technology for the deskless workers who make up over 80% of the global workforce! We're giving back to those underserved workers by making it easier for them to do their jobs and celebrating the meaningful work they do.

Company culture, employee appreciation, career development planning, and DEI are very important to us— which is why UpKeep has been named a "Best Place to Work" several years in a row.
