Our story

Upright Labs is based in Washington, DC and founded by David Engle and Jackson Geller in 2017.

Jackson built his first computer at the age of 12. David at the age of 14 launched a not-for-profit program that brought free events to thousands of underprivileged children. Together, they sold their last software company, Masquerade, to a venture capital-backed e-commerce marketplace.

When running masquerade, they saw the value that retailers were losing in their post-retail supply chains, as they were profiting off retailers’ mistakes. They built Upright Labs to help retailers optimize their supply chains in order to increase revenue during retail and post-retail processes.

Upright Labs works with retailers to supercharge their e-commerce operations. The company started with software that was built to decrease touch points and streamline operations resulting in operational increases in net profit. Our debut product decreased the average amount of time to list on secondhand marketplaces by up to 90% with better accuracy, and fewer mistakes.

Overtime, Upright Labs has grown to be the go-to trusted advisor for operational effectiveness and e-commerce growth. Our products and services are the selection of choice when an organization is seeking operational efficiency and the ability to drive revenue to the bottom line. This year we will help process over 50 million dollars in gross revenue with Upright Lister, our cloud-based multichannel listing tool. While also scaling e-commerce operations by optimizing and implementing over half a million square feet of e-commerce operations via Upright Services. We welcome you to experience the value by partnering with Upright Labs, a customer-focused and transformative software and service provider.
