Flexibility: High

Social Engagement: High

What’s What: Are you a Jane or Jack of all trades? Or a specific one that you’d like to pick up some work doing? Furniture Assembly, Mounting (fromTVs to shelves to artwork to lights), or Cleaning maybe? Meet TaskRabbit, let them take care of the logistics while you make some cash doing what you’re great at–become a Tasker!

Amava Take: How does earning money your way sound to you? With TaskRabbit’s best-in-the-business app, you can help people with their everyday to-dos and get paid. From furniture assembly to errands to closet organization and more, the interface couldn’t be easier! TaskRabbit enables Clients to find and directly hire you for jobs in categories you choose. Next, simply confirm details with your Client, complete the task and submit your invoice. TaskRabbit enables you to complete jobs you love, at rates you choose according to a schedule that works for you.

From the Front Lines:

What are the benefits of working as a Tasker?  

Choose where and when you want to task. It is highly flexible.

How does the compensation and benefits compare to others in the industry?

That’s up to you! Taskers set their own rates.

What’s unique about TaskRabbit?

TaskRabbit has expanded its presence into 45+ markets across the United States, the United Kingdom and Canada with plans to expand globally. In addition to shaping the future of work, TaskRabbit is now a core driver of the e-commerce and services strategy for the world’s largest furniture retailer with the mission of making everyday life easier for everyone.

What do Taskers do?    

Whatever they choose! Here are just some of the options: Handyman, Help Moving, Interior Painting, TV Mounting, Light Installation, Hanging Pictures & Shelves, Furniture Assembly, Yard Work, Furniture Delivery Services, Delivery Service, Grocery Shopping, IKEA Services and more.

What kind of training do Taskers need?

Nothing specific. Taskers are independent contractors and not employees of TaskRabbit. As independent contractors, Taskers have the flexibility to set their own hourly rates, schedules, and work areas.
