About Upright Labs 
Upright Labs builds multichannel ecommerce software for retailers. We make it really easy for second-hand retailers to manage inventory and sell online, everywhere. Our software processes thousands of items each month and has helped retailers sell millions in inventory. 

We work with second-hand retailers including Goodwill and Salvation Army. Our software powers their ecommerce operations and your code will directly impact their success. 

Our stack is Rails on the backend with React.js with Typescript on the frontend, backed by a Postgres DB. We run everything on AWS and Heroku, logging with LogDNA, CI with Github Actions, error tracking with Sentry, and source code on Github. We constantly evolve our stack and are always on the lookout for new exciting technologies.
