Urban Company – Associate manager

Urban Company is hiring for Associate Manager- Finance

Urban Company is a technology platform offering customers a variety of services at home. Customers use our platform to book services such as beauty treatments, haircuts, massage therapy, cleaning, plumbing, carpentry, appliance repair, painting etc., all delivered in the comfort of their home and at a time of their choosing. We promise our customers a high quality, standardized and reliable service experience. To fulfill this promise, we work closely with our hand-picked service partners, enabling them with technology, training, products, tools, financing, insurance, and brand, helping them succeed and deliver on this promise.

Urban Company started out as UrbanClap in Nov 2014, when its founders, Abhiraj, Raghav and Varun realized that the home services industry was predominantly unorganized, fragmented and offline. Customers found it difficult to avail quality services in a convenient manner, and service professionals were struggling to make ends meet, having to rely upon several middlemen, contractors, and local aggregators. The founders felt that the industry was ripe for disruption, and launched Urban Company, with three key principles in mind –

Customer love: Build a platform that offers truly delightful and differentiated services
Partner empowerment: Build a deep, full-stack partnership with service partners, helping improve their earnings and overall livelihood
Technology first: Bring innovation and technology to an age-old industry

As of May 2022, Urban Company had a presence in 56 cities across India, Australia, Singapore, UAE, The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the USA. Since inception, the platform has delivered 36 million bookings to customers, and a highly trained fleet of 40,000+ service professionals. Today, Urban Company offers 50+ different types of home and beauty services through its mobile applications and website.

“Our Mission is to empower millions of service professionals by delivering services at-home in a way that has never been experienced before.”

Service partners are the backbone of our platform. Our service partners are typically individual professionals working in one service category. We operate a full-stack platform to help them succeed and provide the following –

1. Training & Certification

2. Technology

3. Supplies and products

4. Insurance and Financing support

5. Market access and brand

Scale of Operations and Growth Outlook

Urban Company is present in the top 47 cities in India, and 9 cities internationally. The platform serves approximately 1.5 million+ customer bookings every month through a fleet of 40,000 highly trained service professionals, for a variety of home service needs. The business is growing rapidly at >75% YoY, and has demonstrated significant resilience in the last two years despite the COVID-19 pandemic (Urban Company was awarded The Economic Times Startup Award for COVID led business transformation in 2021, read more here). The company has raised significant growth capital last year, which is still untouched and sitting in the bank, and has a very clear path to profitability for its India business over the next few quarters. Its frugal approach and years of secured runaway allows the UC team to build with a multi-year horizon in mind, while focusing on growth with profitability.
