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.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Thumbtack (Draper, UT) in July 2016.
Phone interview followed by two in person interviews. All three interviews were very informal with the purpose of identifying a cultural fit. Everyone I met was very personable, laid-back and friendly. The Draper office is beautiful and their employees are provided with free lunches and snacks. The office had game rooms and employees seemed to enjoy working together. In the end, I was not offered the position.
