Achievements of our employees form the basis of success of our company. It’s people who come up with ideas and then willingly and enthusiastically bring them to life. We look for those who are able to achieve such results, and help them to find us. In our community, we would like to see committed, talented, responsible professionals who are always ready to move forward and who share our Mission.
The spirit at UPECO makes working here a fulfilling and interesting process. Our employees gain stability, opportunities for self-fulfillment and the ability to solve interesting tasks independently.
Our Team
Different people work at UPECO, but they have certain qualities that unite them and lead them to success. These qualities define the chemistry between the person and the company that makes their cooperation long and effective. These qualities are presented in our model of corporate competences called DRIVE, which is an acronym for:
  • Development —
    a desire for constant professional and personal growth.
  • Results —
    an ability to set and achieve objectives, and be responsible for the result.
  • Innovation —
    an ability to bring new ideas to processes, products and company activities..
  • Value of Teamwork —
    an ability to actively and effectively participate in team work, thus contributing to the final result.
  • Engagement —
    an emotional connection with the company.
Success through growth
An important factor of UPECO’s success is the constant growth of every person working at our company.
For this purpose we have built up our own training and development system called STEP UP that includes four courses:
  • U*START — a course for all new employees at UPECO. It is a presentation of the company, its culture, brands and products, and also, it helps staff members to settle into a new job and get acquainted with colleagues.
  • U*TECH — a course for the development of professional competency for employees of the marketing and sales departments. For other departments, we tailor professional development programmes in view of the relevant needs.
  • U*EXECUTIVE — a course for the development and brushing up of management skills of company executives. The part of the course dedicated to human resources management is mandatory for all executives at UPECO. We also use a wide range of tools to facilitate growth of high-potential executives, for example, coaching or business simulations.
  • U*PEOPLE — a course for the development of personal skills required for effective performance, in particular, time management and effective communication skills.
UPECO does not rely solely on the STEP UP system: the company’s views on personal growth are flexible, and therefore training is informal from start to finish. We believe that all our employees strive for growth, and so we are willing to use every opportunity for development and are open to any sound suggestions and initiatives.
There is an ever-expanding library at the company’s office in Moscow, where you can find books, audio and video courses, results of analytical studies and other materials that may be useful for personal development.
A team of like-minded people tends to develop different traditions with time. We value personal communication, aspire to create an inspiring work environment, and celebrate festive dates together — in a lively, joyful and non-trivial way. This helps us to get to know each other better, find mutual interests and more common points in life outside the workplace.

How long does the recruitment process take? Who will be interviewing me?

May I apply for the position of a brand manager or junior brand manager at your company if I do not speak English?
In order to develop and launch products, UPECO maintains international cooperation and uses the global language of communication, therefore it is very important for employees involved in marketing to speak English. However, it is not an obligatory requirement, so feel free to send us your CV.
I am interested in international business. Which advantages will I get working at your company?
UPECO is a Russian company with a western outlook on business practices. Working at our company is a much more interesting process than in any typical international enterprise.

Our employees regularly participate in international expos and conferences, and visit foreign manufacturing sites.
