Don't take our word for it, listen to the people we've worked with.
First and foremost, Paul and Marius are good guys and they assembled a team that was a reflection of them, as well. I was impressed by their communication skills, organization, and excitement for the project. When I began this journey, I wanted a company that could bring together the right people to achieve my goal on a budget and timeline that worked for me. I was very pleased to learn how quickly Uplift understood my story and always worked to grasp my perspective and that of the client that I wish to serve. I trusted them completely throughout the entire project and always knew that I was being treated fairly. We had a lot of fun along the way too! Being hard-working, diligent, and a pleasure to work with, I would wholeheartedly recommend them.
Above all, Paul is dedicated to adding true value to the business. He does this first by thinking about the big picture and making sure he understands the requirements and how all the details fit together -- and of course raising concern when things don't make sense. [...]
While Paul worked with us at ClearCare he was one of my first choices for several mission critical projects because I knew he would deliver. He worked on both the Payment Processing and Employment Screening modules which were both huge company initiatives, and Paul played a big part in making them successful.
I found Paul and Marius through their site, and I'm glad I took the chance to work with them. They truly are product engineers who can take a 2-page specification written in Google Docs and turn it into a stellar MVP. Well designed, full stack implemented and deployed. One of the products, Jellyfish began as an in-house project, and with their help it has become a standalone project with potential for massive growth.
I would highly recommend working with Paul and Marius. They’re both kind and both smart and as a team, they’re reliable and intelligent. They’re super speedy at building features and always keep on top of the latest trends and tools, which I think sets them apart from other consultants I’ve worked with in the past. It’s clear that they can be trusted to deliver high-quality results on time.
When Marius and I began working together on a project at Credit Karma, we were looking to solve too many problems to even count. Given the long list, I was delighted to find that Marius is quick, efficient, and does a terrific job the first time around. He’s a great communicator and I found him extremely reliable. I would recommend him again for any job. Marius is one of those senior engineers that everyone is looking for but no one can seem to find. If you get the chance to hire him, do it!
Under deadline for the start of our season, the Federal Government had failed to provide us the data we needed. We needed someone creative and fast to scrape that data for us, and this wasn't just a case of pulling the data from a website--this involved running a series of complicated transactions. Paul delivered, with clear communication and an attention to detail. When there was an error, he fixed it immediately. He cares deeply about the quality of his work, and was dedicated to helping us achieve our end goal.
Each person I worked with was friendly, receptive, and productive and working together requires little ramp up, which really sets them apart from other engineers and consultants I’ve worked with before. If you’re looking for a team of communicative engineers who know just when to ask the right questions, choose Uplift.
Paul and Marius are consummate professionals. I had the opportunity of working with them on a landing page. What impressed me was their level of responsiveness to our needs, attention to detail and getting things done on schedule. Even after the project was done, Paul and Marius were available and happy to help with troubleshooting.
What stood out most about Paul while working with him is his ability to spot issues during code review. His feedback was always actionable and he would find non-trivial bugs in how our systems would interact and how things can break in edge-cases. In his own work, Paul architected and built tools we still use, and much of his code has stood the test of time in terms of being used and extended by people he's never worked with directly.
I worked together with Marius on a few projects for which I was the UI lead. Marius is better at two jobs than most people are at one. He is that rare person who is highly skilled both as a designer and as a developer. To have these skill sets combined in one person is greater than the sum of its parts as it meant I could hand off whole features and rest assured the design and code would be top notch: his code was consistently well architected, performant, and in addition his design solutions were imaginative, attractive, and user friendly. Marius is one of the most talented and agreeable people I've worked with and he has my highest recommendations.
A big difference from other engineers and consultants that I noticed while working with Uplift was their attention to code quality. The entire team was not only fast at delivery, but they seriously grokked new codebases, took initiatives to make the codebase better, and also wrote very high-quality code. That, in addition to continuously providing detailed code reviews really allowed each person to integrate as a seasoned engineer on the team instead of just working as a consultant. Paul, Marius and Charles are smart, hard-working, and results oriented. They really know how to get stuff done in a sustainable way.
Marius and I worked together on the Learning Management Systems team at MIT IS&T. As a front end developer and designer, Marius helped design and structure our code base such that it was robust and scaleable and enforced best practices. This enabled me and other designers that were less experienced programmers, to check in code which made our team overall more efficient and productive. He’s extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of front end development and that’s because he’s passionate about the subject. If I encountered a technical problem, Marius was the first person I’d go to for help because he’d usually have the answer and if not, he’d figure it out. He’s a great guy to work with and was an invaluable member of our team.
Marius has been a breeze to work with. He was able to work quickly and independently to rework the chat functionality at the core of our product and to add mobile support throughout the site. My team is thrilled with his changes and his rearchitecting has made it easy for me to continue to improve! I look forward to working with him again.
Marius is a great Designer, Prototyper, and Engineer. He scoped out the project from a set of requirements, gave an accurate estimation and set of deliverables, and delivered a beautiful app. Throughout the project, he kept me informed and understood what I'd need to get this completed. I'd definitely work with him again on any project.
Paul has a great combination of technical skills and vision, clear communication and a level-headed (and fun) personality. I always look forward to working with him because I know there will be some good discussions around solving the problem at hand and when he gets his hands on something he'll run with it, producing well structured and professional code. On top of that he's always amenable to talking through various solutions and problems to figure out the best path forward. Paul is really a pleasure to work with.
When I started looking for teams and agencies to build The Muttley, I knew I needed a full stack solution that would be a combo of existing technology and custom engineering. When I heard that all front end design and web development could be done in house, I was sold. I didn't want an agency that would do exactly what I said, I needed an agency to understand my vision and help make it a reality. I was so happy to see Uplift provide it's experience and take my directional PRD or designs and uplevel the final product past my original threshold. Every day I got honest, straightforward feedback and quality work from a group of intelligent, kind and fantastic people. I felt like I had hired a team, not a random business to help me achieve my goals and take my vision into reality. Working with Uplift is worth every penny.
In our search for developers, we knew we were looking for a team that had experience building a product from the ground up using Python/Django. We choose Uplift because of their product focus, which set them apart from other consultancies. Given that they’re a small company, and we had a big project, we were hopeful the team would be able to execute and deliver and they certainly did! The product is live and our users love it. Throughout each phase of the process, Uplift has taken leadership of the product and treated it like their own, which makes a big impact. These guys know what they’re doing. You can trust them to build a product with a solid foundation.
I worked with Uplift for years. They have the knowledge and experience to provide advice on all areas of our technology. Paul was reliable and responsive, turning around issues quickly. And for both new features and maintenance, the cost and time estimates were accurate. We wouldn’t be here without him!
I worked with Uplift to help bootstrap a React app. The team is very competent, their quality is far above other contractors, they have excellent communication skills and I really liked that they were able to deliver a quality package in the time frame that we needed. I would highly recommend working with Uplift.
I worked with Uplift to identify the right software solutions and execute those solutions into a custom form that I needed built. What set them apart was their willingness to dive in deep. They were user focused, friendly, and flexible in matching the timeline I needed. They’re a team of great talent at a reasonable price.
