About Handy

Our mission is to change the way the world purchases home services. Since all work and no play makes for a dull office, we're committed to creating an environment that's as fun as it is productive. That means we fill our days with food, surprises, brain-stimulating activities, beer and wine for those who want it, a whisky club (complete with commemorative glasses), seriously competitive foosball, and so much more. As a member of the team at Handy, you can look forward to all of that every single day, and tons of other special events and outings sprinkled throughout the weeks.

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
