About Us

Founder Jon Paulsen, a Certified Professional Ergonomist, or CPE, created UPLIFT Desk to fulfill the need for configurable adjustable-height standing desks at a value price. With a Master's degree in Mechanical Engineering and specialty in Ergonomics Engineering, he knows how important the proper office design is for your health. He and our design team have created a desk that doesn't sacrifice aesthetics for function or cost an arm and a leg. So, when it comes to combining productivity, quality, and value, UPLIFT Desk has no equal.
