Here at Handy, we’re building a technology-enabled platform connecting customers with independent service professionals to foster a better home service experience. We were founded in 2012 in Boston by Oisin Hanrahan and Umang Dua and we’re headquartered in New York City. Currently, Handy offers a range of services in most major cities across the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom.
Independent service professionals (“pros”) are able to access the platform (after undergoing a third-party background check and identity verificaiton) through the Handy Pro app. There, a list of jobs that customers have requested is displayed and pros are able to claim them. In addition, the Handy platform allows pros to track customer feedback, make their own schedule and, manage their payment details.
