Just write an upstart script that executes su - your user -c'xxxxx'. Or write a shell script that starts the app in the right way (when run as root) and execute that from upstart.

Except you do not want to run the app as the same user which installed it in production. You also don't want to run it as root (of course), but running it as your user gives the app permissions to re-write any of your files, including it's own source code…
