An Insider's view of Thumbtack

What are some social events your company does?

I was able to meet so many of my friends and colleagues at our first-ever #CampThumbtack and it was incredible! Hugs, great content, dancing the night away, laughter, cheering and great connection. I'm so excited to see where the next years take us and am so proud of the work that went into making Camp a success

Susie

Senior Manager, Internal Communications

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

The Pro Expansion team is a part of the Growth org at Thumbtack, which means we're constantly building and experimenting with new features to help make the pro experience more engaging. We're currently focused on rethinking the way pros bid for leads on Thumbtack, a change that will impact all pros across the nation. It's an exciting time to join.

Michelle

Engineering Manager

How does the company support your career growth?

In contrast to other companies where it may take months before you are given agency in code/projects, within my first few months at Thumbtack I'd run experiments in production, was given the opportunity to scope out larger projects, contributed to the codebase, and even was able to volunteer for social activities.

Adam

Hollock

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

Our Platform team is building technology that speeds up the innovation and creation of products at Thumbtack. As we continue to identify opportunities to connect consumers and service professionals across hundreds of categories, we need new capabilities. We're also working to streamline the discovery and engagement process.

Shelton

Vice President, Engineering

What projects are you most excited about?

We are working on a variety of things like instant booking, in-app payments, homecare recommendations, improved machine learning models for our search and ranking, a brand new frontend framework built on Next.js, and much more. I am particularly excited about building out payments on the platform.
