We believe that “Love What You Do" is not just a motivational saying—it’s a career choice. When you choose the right company that aligns with your values, add incredible benefits with awesome colleagues, then you begin to really love what you do!

 

Tribal Culture

There is a collective sense of pride in the work that we do, and this is something that we promote through a fun, energetic work environment. We go above and beyond to put on all kinds of employee appreciation events that keep everyone laughing and enjoying their time at work, as well as offering amazing benefits to keep a great work-life balance. This creates a company comprised of diverse people who respect one another and want everyone in the organization to succeed.

 

A Winning Mindset

If you poll any of the employees at HomeAdvisor, they will NOT say their work is easy, but it is definitely worth the rewards. If you are willing to work hard, we make it easy for you to play hard. Work hard and you could be rewarded with trips to tropical islands, cash prizes, and the opportunity for a 6-figure income.  Plus, enjoy the day-to-day perks, including weekly happy hours, food trucks & social events. Not to mention Summerfest, our annual party that puts the traditional company picnic to shame. Redefining the benchmark of success requires hard work and sometimes long hours. We purposely design our workforce with people who have a winning mindset and reward them for it.

 

Our Work is Personal

Our people understand the power of human connection. We thrive on building meaningful relationships with others and enjoy helping people in the process. Everything we do at HomeAdvisor is personal. Every conversation is tailored to the individual. Ultimately, our job is to connect valued contractors with the homeowners who need them, and we understand that many of our contractor's livelihoods depend on our service.

 

Real People Making a Real Impact

At HomeAdvisor, our employees have the opportunity to contribute ideas and know their ideas will be listened to and valued.  Our teams don’t just succeed with what they are given, but are constantly pursuing new and better ideas and practices. We have a reputation for implementing employees' ideas that have a ripple effect from within our organization to create a positive impact in the community.

You’ll also find a focus on health and wellness and a strong sense of pride and connection with your colleagues.

IN OUR COMMUNITY

HomeAdvisor knows that we feel good when we give back – and the company fully encourages us on our quests to feel warm and fuzzy. In addition to offering employees one paid day off to volunteer for the non-profit of our choice, HomeAdvisor holds several events and charitable drives each year to benefit community organizations. Our parent company, IAC, will also match any donations up to $5000 and double the impact for your favorite charity.

    I have been working at HomeAdvisor full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay, schedule, environment, culture, management, annual zoo outing, center lunches, free soda, great health benefits, energy, free coffee, in office store, pool table, ping pong table, gym, keg/happy hour....Just to name a few.
    When I started working at HomeAdvisor I had no idea what to expect. What I found was a company who cared about and appreciated it's employees. I had fun at work. I felt like I was important and making a difference. It's a company that gives back what you give and more. HomeAdvisor has made an impact on my life in so many wonderful ways and taking a chance to work there was the best decision I have ever made.

    Cons

    When I say there are no cons, I mean it. This place is everything you will never find anywhere else.

    Advice to Management

    Keep putting people first and making a difference!

    Senior Java Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Golden, CO
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at HomeAdvisor (Golden, CO) in February 2018.

    Interview

    I applied online. A recruiter contacted me within a few days. A couple of days after that, I had a call with the hiring manager. Less than a week after that, I was brought onsite for 2.5 hours. For some candidates a phone screen/coding portion is done in advance, but I opted to directly visit the office. The interview process is comparatively short: ~1 hour of coding, 45 minutes or so of OO design, and 45 minutes of team/culture fit. You really get to see the people you might be working with and get a feel for them.

    Contrary to bigger tech companies, HomeAdvisor has a quick decision rate and I was offered the job immediately after my interview. Having that immediate feedback definitely takes an emotional load off, but be prepared to decline or accept within a few days at most.

    The office itself is very positive and everyone I interacted with was pleasant. The recruiter was very attentive and addressed all my needs. I can highly recommend that anyone interview here - I accepted a position elsewhere.

    Interview Questions

    • Basic coding/unit test session, OO design, team culture fit session. If you know how to competently code and debug mistakes you will have no problems.   Answer Question
