UrbanClap (www.urbanclap.com | Android app | iOS app) is a mobile marketplace for local services. We help customers hire trusted professionals for all their service needs. Be it getting a plumbing job done, improving your fitness through yoga, learning to play the guitar, decorating your home or getting candid photos of your wedding clicked, we are a sure shot destination for your service needs.
What drives us?
Our vision is to use technology and smart processes to structure the highly unorganized services market in India and across the world (Especially emerging markets). UrbanClap aspires to make hiring a service professional as easy and straightforward as Amazon makes buying products.
We are a young, passionate team working on a tough but huge opportunity. We believe there is immense value (akin to serendipity) in connecting customers and professionals looking for each other. In the process, we hope to impact the lives of millions of service entrepreneurs, helping them refocus on their craft.
We have raised three rounds of funding (~US$ 37 M) from Bessemer Venture Partmenrs, Saif Partners, Accel Partners and the founders of SnapDeal.
Do you think finding, managing and hiring a service is an easy task? Is it easy for a young professional to get customers? How do you build technology which caters to customised needs for different services, yet fits in together as a platform?
UrbanClap is looking for young frontend ninjas who are passionate about giving users the best experience. If you have a keen eye for design, and have the experience and enthusiasm to build what you dream, then we have found a match. At UrbanClap, frontend is an engineering role where you will be architecturing frameworks that allow our platforms to be dynamic and perform fast. Right from user input, where each category demands its own input fields, to our internal ops teams who need efficient dashboards to manage customers and providers, you will be making the touchpoint between our data and user.
