It’s been a busy and exciting couple of months at TaskRabbit and we’ve got an awesome update to share. Today, we’re thrilled to announce that TaskRabbit is now live in Atlanta, Dallas, Houston, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. Each of these cities are vibrant, entrepreneurial (and busy) communities and we couldn’t be happier to start helping people there.
We’ve trained our inaugural TaskRabbits in those cities and, starting today, they are ready to help you with all your tasks! In these five new cities combined, we have brought on over 2,000 new TaskRabbits to the community, bringing the total number to over 15,000 across the US.
And the growth doesn’t stop there! TaskPoster growth has been tremendous as well – we are on track to welcome 1.25 million new users in 2013 alone.
We’ve also been working hard on our mobile initiatives, with several updates to our iPhone app in the past month, including a slew of new features and optimization that has increased app processing speed by 300 percent. Keep an eye out for a fresh and complete overhaul of the TaskRabbit iOS app, a native Android app and a dedicated app for our TaskRabbit community before the end of the year.
And of course, more expansion is on the way! We’re working hard at HQ to bring TaskRabbit to more cities by the end of the year. Have a city in mind for where we should head next? Be sure to let us know.
