Team Administration’s Mission and Roadmap
We build and maintain the systems that allow Upmarket admins to administer account and user life cycles securely and easily at scale.
Our domain includes some of the most critical and challenging problems in account creation, login, sign-up, identity management, and account security.
Our top priority for 2023 is to improve visibility, control, security, and trial & onboarding for our users. This means that we are at the forefront of identifying where we’re falling short in serving the needs of technical buyers and account admins and then working on delivering the features and tools they need to succeed.
