Jobber raises $60M as its platform for home services professionals hits 100K users – TechCrunch
Today, a company called Jobber, which has built a platform doing just that for a particular segment of the market — home services professionals — is announcing a round of funding as it finds its business growing. Jobber’s platform is focused around management software to help sole-traders and small home services businesses make appointments and organize their schedules, set up billing and manage their accounts, and market their services online. Jobber’s rise comes at a key moment not just in the macroeconomic sense but also in the world of technology. “Those two trends meant that home services professionals performed better than you would expect in the economy, and so did we,” Pillar said. The company is not disclosing its valuation and had raised just $16 million before this round.
