Mission: Millions of small businesses in the US have been left behind by the technology boom. And millions of regular people don’t have a good way to find a local pro when they need one. Our mission is to bridge the gap — to help busy families hire family businesses ...
Back in 2008, we asked ourselves a simple question: Why is it still so hard to hire a plumber? Or a piano teacher? Or any local professional?
In the era of instant-everything, finding a service pro should be easy. So we created a marketplace where customers can quickly find and hire the pros they need, and pros are able to grow their business by connecting with the customers they want.
Today, we’re continuing to solve the industry’s most interesting problems with its brightest talent, at a scale where everyone still feels like family. We have two office locations — San Francisco and Salt Lake City. Filter by location when searching "Reviews" or "Interviews" to hear from employees in both spaces.

At Thumbtack, four core values guide everything we do:
I have been working at Thumbtack full-time (More than a year)
Perks are good, work is great, the people are AWESOME.
Great values, that aren't just talked about, these seep through the organization.
One of the core values is Make Each Other Better. I've found it easy to learn, share and grow technically. Having a common goal and clear shared vision help integrate the team. I've worked at multiple companies and I value the transparency at Thumbtack. Join Us!
Middle management is super new and learning the ropes. Employee median age is likely below 30's.
I applied online. I interviewed at Thumbtack (San Francisco, CA).
The process started with an initial recruiter phone screen, which also outlined the different stages of the interview process upfront. The next stages were a phone interview, take-home assignment, and a day of on-site interviews.
The interviews and exercises were focused around business problems that the team is trying to solve which helped me better understand the role/day-to-day. A lot of the interview questions are geared to see if you can interpret different types of data, synthesize it, and develop some type of recommendation. I really enjoyed doing the take-home and on-site interviews, which signaled to me that the role would be a good fit.
By the end of the interview process, I had talked to many different members of the team and got a pretty good sense for the culture of the team and company.
This role is also known as 'Product Strategy & Operations Associate'
