Apply to Airtasker

Our mission at Airtasker is to empower people to realise the full value of their skills. We create jobs and help people get more done all around the world. We are inspired every day by the people who make their livelihood on the Airtasker platform.

Airtasker is a global marketplace for local services. We’re building a platform that allows people to post jobs and allows taskers to earn a living through these jobs. 
We’ve spent the last year on a journey of growth and transformation - planting our flag in UK and Ireland and progressing on our vision for the local services economy. We are 4 million users strong, with over $300M of job opportunities created this year in Australia and overseas. We’re making huge strides and we need your help as we accelerate to our mission! 

You’ll be joining a diverse team. We come from all around the world, from all walks of life. We celebrate speaking up, solving fascinating problems, taking ownership and constantly honing our craft. We look for people who believe that getting your fundamentals tight and adopting a ‘first principles’ approach is a good way to tackle a problem. We also believe that is important to be pragmatic in execution and work on projects with a ‘right fit’ mentality.

Our mission fuels how we work - you’d be part of an environment that truly values and welcomes your sense of inquisitiveness, ambition, and capacity to innovate. We’re small enough that your voice will be heard and big enough to deliver on these ideas at scale. We come together to meaningfully improve the lives of millions of people.

If you would like to be surrounded by people (ex- Google, Canva, BCG, startups) who are passionate about their craft and working towards a mission. If you would like to work in a data driven culture, you will enjoy the conversation with us and the people you meet through the process. We are excited to learn more about you!
