What is your role at Upwork

Project Manager


How long have you worked at Upwork?

Since October 2013


Why did you decide to work for Upwork? What do you like the most about the company?

Growing up in a family where my father ran his own business, I always had an interest in supporting business owners and independent workers. Upwork's core values align perfectly with my passion to help people find work and run successful businesses.


What do you like about your job?

I enjoy creating programs and managing projects that help our customer facing teams run smoothly, ensuring the best experience for our users.


What are some fun or interesting things about you?

I'm an adventurous eater, and I love my French bulldogs. My "dog" son is Sumo.

Hi Sultana,


Thank you for your interest in joining our team. We're currently not looking to further expand our team but you can keep an eye out and submit a proposal on a public job we'd post in case this changes.
