Frequently asked questions

What type of employment contract is used? Employment or B2B?

Already having our Development Center in Cluj and a legal entity to operate in Romania, both types of contracts are possible, depending on your preferences.

What is UpTeam's hiring process?

Any successful employee story starts with the way they were approached by recruiters or company representatives. We are making sure that we engage with you differently and that you go through a fast and effective process. After screening, we will invite you to a HR Interview, to make sure we align our interests. The next step is the Tech Evaluation, then on to the Tech Interview and last, but not least, the Culture & Fit Interview, which is the most informal and fun.

Does UpTeam ask for a comission after I get hired on a project?

As we are a consulting & development company, we consider every member of our community as part of our company and we do not require payments from you. This is also why we invest time and effort into creating development programs for all our employees. Your success is our success!

What is the typical length of a project or contract?

The average tenure in UpTeam is 5 years, but you can also be involved in short-term engagements. Usually, employees who start on a short project end up being full-time collaborators and part of our community. The lenght of our relationship will be up to you.

Where do I have to work from?

Our Development Center in Cluj is open to receive you, but if you feel more comfortable working from home, we support that too. You can also choose to work from the many shared workspaces we collaborate with and meet new interesting people.
