An Insider's view of Taskrabbit

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Throughout my time at TaskRabbit, I’ve always found it easy to maintain a work-life balance. Even on a team where my colleagues are spread across several different timezones, I’ve seen our leadership take great care to ensure meetings, deadlines and general workload don’t upset the balance we're all trying to achieve with our careers and home life.

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Testing in a two sided market place As a company we want new features to positively impact clients and tankers. As we release features one challenge is understanding the effects not only on the cohort affected, but the holistic impact on the Tasker-client eco-system. Optimization of Supply (taskers)-Demand (clients)
