MyBuilder.com helps homeowners find reliable tradesmen through the power of online reviews. We’re a market leader in the UK and are part of IAC, a well known New York based internet group (Tripadvisor, Vimeo, Match.com, Tinder, HomeAdvisor, etc.). This role is based at our Washington office. Our HQ is located in central London and we have an established work from home team.
The Jobs Team is crucial to the ongoing success of MyBuilder. In order to find a tradesman, a homeowner must first post a job on the site. As the guardians of this process, the role of the Jobs Team is twofold: Firstly, to review these jobs and communicate with customers to help them find the right tradesman. Secondly, to set the lead fee that we charge each tradesman when they get shortlisted. In effect, the Jobs Team is responsible for 100% of the company’s revenue so it’s an important function.
